The BL is to fit larger tires....so that one is best if you want larger tires.
The SL is to raise the frame...so that one is best if you want to raise the frame.
"BEST" is based on what its FOR....
If all you want is to look taller in the mall parking lot, its a lot cheaper to do a 2-3" BL than a 3" SL, AND, with the BL, you can add larger tires, which lift you up even higher.
For example - If your stock tires are 29", going to 33's lifts the entire rig, diffs, axles, body, frame, etc...about 2" higher.
If you also did a 2" BL to FIT the 33's, you are 2" taller from that as well, for a total of 4" added height over where you are now.
If you already have a PML (1" SL), adding UCA/3" SL will raise you a total of 2", and you could fit up to a 32" tire...which would lift you about 1.5", for a total added height of ~ 3.5" over where you are now.
If you want it to work best off road, you do BOTH of course.
