You're going to get a lot of different answers here. I can tell you from personal experience that the Rock Krawler 3.5 mid-arm flex was incredible on the trail. I haven't done any other JK lifts, so I will let other comment there, but I've read good things about AEV, Synergy, Teraflex, and Rancho.

Like said in your other thread. 4" is a lot of lift on a jk
You can run 33's w/o a lift or small budget boost/leveling kit. No need to jack the jeep up if you are not planning on at least 35's,

This should help understand

Get a 2 inch budget boost with 35 inch tires and you'll have a very very capable rig especially if you have a rubicon or lockers.

Trim the flares and pitch seem. Run longer shocks and bump stop accordingly
