Best JK 4" lift for 35" tires - suggestions?

I am considering either the Pro Comp or Rubicon Express 4" lifts with 35" tires (probably Pro Comp AT) purchased from 4 Wheel Parts here in San Diego, CA. The kit would include Pro Comp ES9000 gas shocks. I have a 2010 Rubicon 4-door automatic.

Any better suggestions and, or experience with this equipment?
- kits
- shocks
- tires

goals:
1. Improve off-road performance in sand, rocks
2. Try to keep good on-pavement handling and ride
3. Try to keep decent center of gravity for safety

There's no reason for a 4" lift-troubles from now on, and a 2.5" is all you should get, if atall !

With the JKU, you can get 33" tires that will do everything you want and don't even REALLY NEED A LIFT !!

Flat fenders/cut stock fenders, maybe new bumpers-

Google ---JKU lifts--pages of info !

Good luck

yeah but 35s just look so perfect on the JK, plus speaking for me only, i'm not looking for flat or cut fenders.. and to achieve that i'm going with the AEV nth Degree 3.5" lift

I agree that a 2.5” lift is good for 35s. It keeps your COG down (your #3), and is a lot less expensive than the higher lifts than may require more hardware. I also have a Rubicon so I kept my stock shocks and got a kit with shock extensions.

AEV is great stuff. Plus their appearance on the show Dangerous Drives was pretty cool too!

2.5 rough country lift is all you need for 35 inch tires.
