RC vs RE noob question

the first week of july i'm finally getting my lift. i was dead set on the 2.5" rc lift but i'm seeing a lot of mixed reviews on here. before i decided on rc, i was just thinking about a 2" re budget boost. i understand new coils are better than just spacers but all of these reviews just make me iffy on the idea. any opinions of which i should get? i have new 31x10.5 bfg ats sitting in my garage that i'm going to put on. idk if that helps. and its a dd with minor offroad use. thanks in advance.

I ran 31x10.5's with no lift and no problems.



Then I went with a RC 2.5 spring and shock kit and 32x10.5's.

I have only had the lift a month or so(maybe 500-600 miles). It was kind of stiff at first, but it seems to be getting better. No sagging yet and it didn't even drop when I put on the front bumper and winch. If you notice it sits level now, not like before the lift when the front sat lower then the back. Shocks look like new, but again it is still fairly new. Hope this helps.
