Time to lift

I have a 2003 wrangler x. I drive 90% of the time on the highway. I live in south GA, so beach dunes are my big crawls. I am thinking 1in BL from performance accessories, 2in BB from Rubicon Express 2 Budget Boost Lift Kit (Jeep TJ, LJ) - RE7030, with MT side biter rims, 33x12.5 tires (Brand and style not selected yet). I have never done this type of work before, but plan on doing all of this myself. Any good advice would be appreciated. I don't know what I will run into during this project, what unexpected hurdles I must overcome, but I am open to good advice from anyone who is willing to share from their experience.

Thanks in advance,

unless you plan to air your jeep out in the dunes a BB will be fine. I have read that Rubicon Express is not currently doing open for business, they are reorganizing. So you may look into a different company for spacers.

for a BB I wouldn't waste my money on RE. I would just go with skyjacker or rough Country. Now if you want to go with a coil spring lift... I defiantly would get a RE kit
