Most comfortable lift to fit 31.7"s ?

Hello all,

I'm trying to find the most COMFORTABLE lift to fit 31.7" tires. Right now I'm torn between the rocky road lift at 2.5" with all new rear shocks and the rustys off road 2" lift with rear new shocks.

Ive seen pictures of the rocky road lift, and it looks like they will fit 31.7"-32" with no problems. But some people recommend the rusty's lift because its cheaper and supposedly better quality products.

Should I be considering another type of budget lift? I will be doing zero off roading, just want on road comfort. Like new springs instead? Thanks for any input.

I had a 2" lift on my wk laredo. I had 32" all terrains. You're good with anything 2.5 or higher.

As for quality. A budget boost will maintain stock ride quality. A spring replacement lift generally tends to have stiffer springs.
