Help me Choose my Lift

Hey guys. I just picked up a new 2011 JK Unlimited sport, manual trans.
I need help choosing a lift. I don't wanna break the bank yet. Im just looking for something that will be good on and off road. I will hit some trails and mud but nothing to serious, until I have more funds available. It is my daily driver and will see about 40 miles a day.
Im going to be putting on some 35x12.5 tires on it along with 4.88 gears.
What lift do you think I should go with?
The rough country lift seems to have the most stuff but I have read that the springs sag a lot.

Have you looked at Rock Krawler? Check out their 2.5 Max travel system. Their kits you can build on as you go. I would put it on the list as a contender.

As for Rough Country they are a great budget kit so if funds are an issue they are a perfect match. Many have switched later to a Rock Krawler/Teraflex kit.

I would highly suggest against the Pro Comp kits they are no comparison to the others and have had several complaints(except HITMONEY's LA Kit).

My advice is to choose wisely and not just based on budget. If you need to wait to save up to get a better kit I would highly suggest doing so. We would be glad to help you in any way that we can.

x2 on the budget comment. You'll regret decisions made taking cost over quality. That said, everyone's got opinions based on experience. Personally, I've got a Rubicon Express 3.5" standard w/shocks and love it. Rides great, no issues.

Cheers.

Thanks for the input.
I have to buy wheels, tires, and gears. Its not that I want a cheap lift, I just want to get it in the air for now and then next summer start adding to it.
I plan on buying everything on Monday.
Would this be a good kit to start with and then I can add on later? Its a bit more then the others but includes some arms.
