expensive vs cheap

I know a lot of people have asked this question but i cant decide if i should spend the extra money and buy the OME 2" lift or save some money and get the Rancho sport 2" with 9000XL shocks.

and please if you guys have any suggestions on other lifts say them i just like these two but can't decide what to do.

If you're asking us to spend your money...we'll do that for you. The 9000XL is a nice shock! Buy the best you can afford! Get reviews on individual components and see if you should buy the package or individual components...

When it comes to off roading Cheap is Never better. And with shocks you'll be feeling them on every bump. What's that worth to you.

X2, Always buy the best up front the first time, providing that you can afford it!
If the funds are there, then why settle for second best..........

yep completely right, i just wanted to make sure that i wasn't wasting my money cause from what i read a lot of people are very happy with the Rancho lift but in the end i don't plan on selling my jeep ever so it makes sense to buy the best stuff.
