How much more lift do you want? The more you lift the more parts you need.
Take a look at the complete TF 2.5" BB and see what I mean. Going another 1" higher will require a rear trackbar relocation bracket and extended swaybar links at the least for handling. You may get away without them, but not sure how well it will handle.

If you are not happy with the leveling kit You may just be better off removing it, selling it, and getting a bigger lift. I really don't think its worth the hassle to just put in a half inch spacer..

I would not lift a JK more than you need to clear the tire/wheel combo you want to run. It just raises the CG unnecessarily. Also, as above, once you go over 2.5 or 3 inches, you need a lot more parts to correct the geometry and get a satisfactory ride. My rule of thumb is about $1k per inch of spring lift with all the parts you really need. Sure you can get a kit cheaper....but you will be adding other parts down the road to get back to a good ride IMO.
