Mopar 2.5" Bilstein Lift vs Any Aftermarket?

I have until tomorrow to cancel my order for the Mopar 2.5" Bilstein Lift. Dealership is selling and installing them and will warranty everything for 3 years. They said going aftermarket will not carry the same warranty.

How do the Mopar 2.5" kits compare to Skyjackers, AEV, or any other aftermarket kit?

Should I just forget about the warranty and go with aftermarket? I want something with red springs and shocks, and the mopars are all black.

Any advice?

If you want red springs you can either paint them or buy from rancho. Also installing a lift isn't that hard an I wouldnt shell out all the cash for a dealer lift. Look into teraflex, aev, rock krawler, metal cloak, an rancho.
