long arm vs short arm that is the question?

What would be better as a lift for a daily driver and offroading. On my 03 sport. And why?

Long arm, smoother ride, more flex.

Depends on what type off offroading and how often you actually gonna go. I would first say short arm to save some money. Don't cheese out buying a crappy kit though. Buy quality stuff.
Your question honestly has a lot of answers...depends on quite a few things.

Well I hope to be on the trails at least once a month. The thing is that I don't want to spend the money on a short arm kit and later want a long arm kit. And I don't want to lose drivablity on the street. With the lift kit. So spend a little more now and love my kit or spend alittle less now and want more later. That's my delema hope I am not making things difficult for you. I pulling my hair on this end. Lol

If you are going 4" or over, long arm, no questions. 3.5"-4" is a toss up, but could benefit from a long arm system. 3" or under, a short arm is fine.
