Daily driver and a lift..

My 2012 JK is a daily driver and I don't plan on upgrading the tires until the current tires wear out but I would like to have some lift kit on the Jeep should I just do a leveling kit for now to see how it rides without that factory rake or get a budget boost or upgrade with a lift kit and bigger tires when the time comes? I drive 60 miles to work and haven't carried it off road that much. It spends most of its life as a pavement pounder. Thoughts, ideas, suggestions? My question is what would you do?

I was in the same situation, i choose to get a leveling kit. When these tires wear out i will get 33 and a 2.5" lift. I love the look of stock tired and a leveling kit

Is this a good kit? I got some amazon credit so it wouldn't cost me like 50 bones after rebate. Anybody have any experience with it?

Doesn't sound like a complete kit for that price. Shocks and spring spacers alone will not work well.

Look at the parts in this kit.. That would be the bare minimum required for a properly handling 2 or 2.5" lift. New shocks are not necessary on a new Jeep that spends very little time offroad. This kits will ride like stock only higher..
