20008 JK 2 door X leveling kit question

Just bought a 2008 2 door X that is in perfect condition with only 5500 miles and just wondering what leveling kit would be the best. Not really looking for a lot of lift ,just what would a little better with the stock Rubicon wheels and tires I just installed(stock 17 inch Rubi wheels and BFG mud terrains 25575/17) .

Any issues with rubbing etc.

I was thinking of the teraflex leveling kit, seems to be popular and a good price at $130.00. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

2008 JK X
Rubi wheels and tires
Rubi front bumper with tow hooks and OEM fog light kit

Thanks in advance.

I had that same lift on mine for about 6 months, not too bad on or off road and fit 33's. If that all the budget allows go for it

Another option is to go to your dealer and get the rubi unlimited springs. I did it and am happy with the outcome. Even with a winch it stays straight. Roughly $70 bucks each. I used the spring rate numbers ending in 17 and 18.

My builds!

I also went with takeoff Rubi Unlimited springs and shocks a couple of years ago on my 08. Found them on E-bay for a $100 for all and in new condition. I gained an inch of lift in the rear and inch and half in the front. When I added my winch I added 3/4 inch Daystar spacers to the front to compensate for the added weight. The spring numbers ended in 18 and 19. As for tires I run Cooper STT 285/75-16's.

^^this is probably the best $ wise-hell u could probably get those springs off someone here for covering the shipping and you would be good to go
