Rails Authorization before App?

I'm trying to decide whether to, configure the authentication system with multiple roles and a separate devise model for customers logging in. My question is should I get the auth system done first or get the rest of the app done first?

In my experience it is best to add auth when its needed. For example if I'm going to make a blog, it doesn't make sense to add authorization to post comments before I can even test the functionality of adding comments.
