About to begin my first build...

And I have ordered the following:
-2.5" Supreme Suspension BB ($99, Amazon)
-Addco Rear HD Sway Bar, includes bushings for current links ($150, IRO)
-Tenneco HD SS ($40, IRO)
-245/75R16 BFG KM2's ($480, Craigslist)

I am contemplating adding:
-new Moog coil spring isolators ($90, Rockauto)
-JK Rubicon take off shocks ($100,eBay)

spme quick points:
-currently my DD, want to go much bigger in future. Don't mind having to ditch BB for springs later, that's why I just said screw it and got a boost instead.
- me and my old man replaced rear shocks 6 months ago, don't want to buy Bilsteins that won't fit in the future so that's why I thought the JK take offs weren't a bad idea.
- not looking for more lift out of isolators, jeep has 200K and I'm 99% sure they have never been replaced. Don't want to take out springs while installing BB and wish I would have bought them.
-listed prices to possibly help others browsing around the forum price their own lift/upgrades.

Any thoughts, warnings, advice would be appreciated! Can't wait to start a build thread once all the goods arrive...and I get a weekend off work...(weekend bartender to pay for things like this)

Thanks y'all

I went through a similar phase/idea as you. I bought the JK take offs and BB but I later changed my mind and saved up for the 2" lift kit and parts from kolak. Im glad I did, well worth it. If you want JK take offs, I have the springs and shocks still. I'll sell them to you cheap, just pm me.
