Need help deciding

Ok, so my dad gave me $500 as a late birthday present to spend on a lift, I can't decide between the terraflex 3" with skyjacker nitro shocks or the old man emo 2.5" lift (light load) so I want opinions on which is better and such. Forgot to mention that this is my DD with a 30 mile drive to and from work and I will be doing light wheeling (once I have the lift and some recovery gear)

It will be years before I do that. I'd probably go all out with longarms.
