Help with JK suspension lift.

Greetings everybody.

I've currently started to be mod crazy (on the cheap) to my jk. Plasti dip wheels, grille mod, backseat tossed, etc.

I would like to install a lift. I was thinking about a 3" lift on my two door jk sport. There is a shop in town that is doing a special for 3000 for 3" lift and 35's with choice of nice wheels. I checked em out and the guy was nice and showed examples. Dalos motoring is the place in saint Louis.

I really don't have three grand to lay down right off the bat, but was thinking if this is a great deal. It includes install as well

I'm mechanically inclined, but only when it comes to interior, not motor, suspension , etc. No tools either for big jobs like that.

Any thoughts? My jeep looks like a baby compared to others on the road!

Is there a way other than a bb to boost me up?

Yes, look at the 2.5 inch OME suspension (keeps you from needing other parts) and getting your preferred tire/wheel through something like Tire Rack...half the money and yes, you can install the lift with minimal mechanical ability IMO.
