OME+BB or RC 2.5

I've finally saved up enough money to get a lift (at 16, moneys hard to come by) and I've narrowed it down to 2 choices, the Rough Country 2.5 kit, and a kit from DPG Offroad, which is OME shocks and a Budget Boost. The OME kit would be $100 more than the RC kit ($270 with JF discount).
Right now I'm on 31" BFG ATs, and I'm going to go to 33"s, and eventually 35"s.
What would you buy, the OME kit or the RC kit
(I'd eventually replace the BB with springs, probably used)

I have the RC 3.25 and really like it. If your plane is to hit 35s one day the odds that these coils will make that trip are slim but.. my last TJ ran a 2.5" Rancho kit will 2"BB to get over 35".
I just put 2" spacers under the front of mine to counter the new winch.
I vote for RC especially if it will be cheaper.

what are you trying to accomplish? neither of those kits alone will fit 33s or 35s, if thats your final goal. buy what you want the first time around, save your money so you only have to do it once. if you want to fit 35s, then buy a lift/equipment that will fit 35s. if you have to save an extra year and ride around on 31s, so what...this ain't a weenie measuring contest.

out of those two, i would definitely go OME/BB...but then again I like a nice ride and not replacing low quality parts....

I should have mentioned that I'm also going to do a body lift, for the savvy tummy tuck, after I install an SYE and CV driveshaft and JJ adjustable upper CAs, after which I should be able to fit 35"s, I believe imped runs with 2.5 SL + 1.25 BL.
