Spend the extra few dollars and upgrade all the hardward to grade 8. I'm running a 1.25" custom body lift now and absolutely no worries about it failing.

That said, do the suspension lift first. If you need just a tad bit more to clear the tires, then get a body lift but try and keep it as small as possible. A 3" gap between the body and the frame looks likes poo.
Depends how hard you wheel too, my stock body mounts didn't last, I would be worried about a body lift
