Default Unclear About What Lift Do Use

Okay I have a 1000 Spending range. I'm getting new tires soon (31's) and after that it leaves me with around 250 to 200 for a lift.
My question is Should I go with the BL?
Or
Should I just get the 2inch Coil Spacers Just to clear the 31's and level it?
I have been searching and have read so many different things about the spacers and that seems to be the EASIEST way to go. But can someone clear things up on these. Like Which is better metal or rubber? and would I need new shocks? I know I would need the alignment and I would just get that when I get the tires..

you don't even need coilspacers to fit 31s, you can fit them no problem. ask 2004xlmiller, he has them on his truck

Plastic spacer that sit on top of the coil spring took me about a day to do it, I changed out the entire front susp with new stuff is why. It was easy to do undo spindle from the a-arms lift truck up as far as you pull spring install on top and revere the process. If you look at the top of this page I have a sticky with the part number and locations for parts.

or you could just use a coil compressor and do it in ten minutes
