for kind of on a budget, consider the rough country 4 inch kit. there are a couple reviews of it in the yj lift review thread, and over all people seem to like it.

I have talked to a couple people about the Rough Country 4" kit and over all they like them only issue I have heard is that the spring are kind of soft and flatten out faster than others.

yea i see that a lot of people have the RC 4" lift. so i guess it must be pretty good. On the other hand, i have read some reviews that say the quality is bad and such.

Most of the Jeepers in my area are recommending the Rubicon Express lifts. I am getting the Rubicon Express 4.5" Extreme Duty kit w/ twin tube shocks.

I have the RC 4" lift and 1" boomerangs.. The springs are made in canada now and are a million times better ive heard. So far mine is great, no more rough than my old worn out springs and def rides better,i beat the crap out of it off road no probs.and for all i got,it was only $635 to my door! Def good for a budget lift! Rubicon is the best, hands down, but ya pay for it.

I've had Rancho, Skyjacker, and Rubicon Express on my rigs over the years.
The Rancho springs front and rear sagged after about 2 years and were junked.
The Skyjacker rides hard but has been holding up for 5 years.
The Rubicon Express front springs sagged after 3 years but were fixed with an add a leaf and have been holding up well for the last 5 years.
