You'll want more than just a lift.

You'll likely want to also:
- extend breather hoses for differentials, transmission, and t-case.
- waterproof your electrical connections and boxes
- install a snorkel so your engine doesn't suck in water

I'm assuming BIG flooding. If you get just about 2-3" of water, then none of it is a big issue.

I personally like the OME 2.5" (I got 3.25" out of it vs what I had), and a 1.25" BL and I run 33's comfortably. This is nicely complemented with JKS adj track bars and JKS adj control arms if you want to go all out. VERY BEEFY!

Another excellent lift is the Rubicon Express 3.5 (actually gets over 4" from what I hear), and 4.5" (gets over 5"). RE's arms seem like quality arms based on the ones I helped install during a friend's axle swap.

Both sets can be pricey, but both are quality setups.

DPG /OME are defintily the moste expensive but the best ride, next to that i would go with a 2" rusty's lift which includes new coils and a 1.25 or 2" Body lift
(www.dpgoffroad.com , www.rustysoffroad.com and the 1.25 in lift is by JKS)
