2.5" or 4" rough country lift kit

I'm looking to lift my jeep but not sure if i should go with the 4" or the 2.5" with a body lift as well. I've heard the 4" can cause vibration. i don't like the way it looks when you lift the body too high so i'd rather get the 4" especially since its the same price as the 2.5". opinions?

i say do the 4", if you don't wanna spend the money on sye and d shaft it should come with a t case lowering bracket, that should take care of the vibes, and then do the sye and d shaft later when you got more money.

i hate body lifts.

it won't look that bad, if they were 235/75r15 it would look a little funny. i wouldn't worry, many people gotta roll around on 31's for a little while, i did on my first spring over.

Here's my 2.5" RC lift with 31's. After the lift, I had vibration at 40mph, so I ordered a t-case drop kit and now it runs smooth. I'm happy with it....it's my DD.
