Welcome to the forum.
I don't think $1000 will do it considering you will need the UCA's from GetLost (or will break something if you don't get them). I agree with with 07JeepXK's advice.
Take the left over money from your mod budget and save up for other mods, like rear tire carrier for your bigger spare that won't fit under the jeep, winch, taller tires, winch mount, etc.
Don't forget to get a front-end alignment after any lift. For a 2 inch lift, I did not recalibrate speedo. I just know that I'm going about 9% faster and farther than the speedo shows...e.g. speedo shows 65, I'm really going 70.
