Quality lift kit

Hey guys, asking this for a buddy with a yj. He just replaced his 95 with a 94. His 95 had a 4" kit on it and he wants the same for his new jeep. Whats a good quality 4" kit for the YJ's?

BDS and Rubicon Express are known for quality lifts, but they come with the price tag to match. On a more budget friendly aspect, Rough Country 4" lift goes for 459.00. Comes complete with shocks, springs and transfer case drop spacers. Good luck with your friends search.

I second OME! Some of the best springs on the market in my opinion.

I have a Zone 4" lift that I will be putting on in a couple of weeks. Waiting for my tires and wheels to arrive. Zone is made my BDS and uses BDS leaf springs which are some of the best made from everything I read and researched. The lift itself is a little more than a RC, but much more affordable than BDS or RE. I would also recommend going ahead and ordering new Sping Eye Bolts, new shackles to replace the factory shackles and a steering stabilizer. Just my 2 cents.

3rd on OME or Rubicon Express. I'm going with a RE kit myself (already bought it), just trying to get the rest of the parts together now as I'm doing a spring over conversion from them.

Rubicon Express all the way. Previously had a Superlift and it rode like a wagon! Broke a spring and decided to go for RE. Best thing I could have done. Rides better than new and flexes better to boot. Anywho, just my humble opinion.
