Jba budget boost lift???

I just noticed that JBA is making a budget boost lift now. I was wondering if anyone has installed one or know how they are? Thinking of getting one.

Get a full spring lift , much better in the long run
PLUS if you have any miles at all on yours the springs are already sagging and those would only speed up the process

04 KJ 4.5 JBA lift, 03 KJ 2.5 JBA coilovers,

As much as I would love a full lift I can't afford it.

Well 2005, you'll need new shocks all around
Plus 299 for the kit .................
4 springs are about the same price

04 KJ 4.5 JBA lift, 03 KJ 2.5 JBA coilovers,

Yes and no, he's saying that to do the "budget" spacer lift right puts you within the price of a full spring lift. You don't have to go all out and get the coilovers that JBA makes/sells, you can get the Old Man Emu kit or Iron Man kit for around $700-750ish.

I own a KK, so I'm not sure if there's other spring lifts out there for the KJ, but when you figure that doing the budget lift($300) plus 2 front shocks(~$200), then 2 extended rear shocks(~$150-200) that's ~$650-700. That's basically the same price as the full spring/shock kits, which give a better ride and last longer.
