Need advice on lift!

I was wondering, what is a good lift for 35s on my 07 unlimited? I am looking for something that is affordable, but not junk! I don't really off road too much, but some mud once in a while... Will I need a regear? I have the stock 4.10s... Thanks in advance!

I've been researching a lot for my upcoming purchase. The two lifts that keep coming to the top most consistently are Teraflex, and OME. A 3" lift will accommodate 35" tires and with the rubicon gearing (4.10) you should not have to regear. I would not skimp on a lift. I've heard that cheap and/or poorly installed lifts increase the occurrence of DW. We're talking about a key component of your suspension. I'd rather spend twice as much now and be happy, rather than buy something cheap only to replace it later. Also, some lift kits are "upgradeable."

There has been some mention that Rubicon Express lifts do not void the warranty on the suspension as long as it's 3" or less. I can't swear by that. Anyone else know for sure? Mopar makes a lift kit (so my dealer tells me) but I'm sure it's just a rebadge of another manufacture, maybe RE?

Everyone knocks the ruf country lift but I have no problems with mine now after tweaking and learning about it! I fit 35,s and lost 0 ride quality ! I can provide more info! I just don't like people that put bad reviews that didn't work through some small problems it's a vehicle every case is not going to be the same.

Rough Country makes a decent lift kit at an affordable price, and seems to handle well on road, its off road that everyone complains about.
