PM Marcus from River City Offroad, I just got a quote from him for a RK 2.5 Max travel which is very close to your budget or go with the stock mod and get new shocks for what you want to spend.

Courtesy, reference, help to others in same situation, help to those who may want to purchase, or just for your fellow jeepers'/members' enjoyment.

You will never be posting pictures of your jeep?

The 2.5 Max Travel is a great option in that price range. You won't need anything else to complete it.

Rough Country and sagging coils has been a common problem over the years. You are wise to just replace them and move along.

Where are you in Louisiana? Are you on the Louisiana off-road message board? Not trying to pull you away from here, but it's a good way to stay in touch with locals to catch some legal rides.

2.5'' RK Max Travel and call it a day. Oh, and hit up Marcus at RCO for the kit. He'll give you an amazing deal.

Another vote for anything Rock Krawler. I am very impressed with all my RK products. Competitive pricing, top notch quality, lifetime abuse warranty and awesome customer service. I have installed 4 various RK lifts for friends and each one of them are still happy.

POISON SPYDER • ROCK KRAWLER • POLY • RCV • YUKON • AEV • TATTON • MBRP • TERAFLEX • BILSTEIN • JKS • RAMSEY • ROCK HARD • WURX • NEMESIS • SPOD • RIGID

RK 2.5 is perfect for that price range. I bought mine from Marcus and it has been a great kit.

You'll get a solid 3" up front and 2" out back. Those coils are progressively wound, should support the weight better.
