Yet Another Lift Question

I have a 2005 X. It is bone stock other than a set of 2006 Rubicon wheels and BFG AT/KO's. I want to put a good suspension lift under it to accomodate 33X12.50's (or the closest 16" equivalent), utilizing the Rubicon wheels. For the type of offroading I do (mainly hunting in the low country of SC), I don't need tons of travel, but I do want a quality lift with good road manners. I am looking at the RE 3.5" Superflex system that sells for around $1000. What are your thoughts?

Secondly, will I need to use spacers with the Rubicon wheels?

Finally, do any of you have 3-4" suspension lifts with the factory Rubicon wheels? If so, some pics would be greatly appreciated along with a brief description of your suspension setup, and whether or not you used spacers.

Thanks for your input, and thanks for a great forum.

Mike

i'm running a 2" OME lift (incl. two 0.5" spacers) with 33s on 15x8 steelies, which works fine for me as i don't need crazy flex space in extreme offroad situations, but is perhaps not the most ideal setup (but going above 3" adds some more complications, most prominently drivetrain angle issues and the related vibrations). here's a recent shot:



i'm not an expert, but i think the OME stuff is pretty solid, so i suggest you have a look at their 4" springs. i'm sure that would look amazing with the 16" rubicons and 33s, and everybody on this forum seems to love all OME kits. i think opinions tend to be more divided on RE.

as for tires, i can highly recommend the new goodyear wrangler duratracs! great tires with very low noise level, and they simply look great, especially on wranglers of course!

Thanks for the info. I am familiar with OME. The thing I continue to hear regarding OME is a harsh ride. I hear the shocks are great, but the springs are lacking.

I would love to hear opinions on OME in addition to suggestions on other suspension lifts.

Thanks!
