Another Lift ? (4WD 3")

Wow...my mind is blown after doing some searching around for a lift. I was debating on either going with the Pro-Comp 4" kit...until I read the last thread...or 4WD's 3" TJ lift. I am looking to run 33" tires..pavement and some trail...nothing extreme..yet. I have been told that the 4WD kit is pretty good. I was also told to get the adjustable track bar and that the driveline should be fine. The kit includes the following:
4 coil springs, 4 shots with boots, front sway bar disconnects and rear sway links, rear track bar relocation bracket, bump stop extensions, and a transfer lowering kit.
What do you guys think? Anything else out there better for me? Any suggestions would be awesome. Really do not want to spend the money right now on a driveshaft and SYE.
THANKS~!

do you have the unlimited or the swb? you should get an sye and cv driveshaft at 4 inches...the 3 inch kit from 4wd seems pretty good...btw if you have the unlmited you may not need the sye and driveshaft...here are some reviews on lifts

i've heard many good things about the rough country...its cheap, complete, and i haven't heard any complaints about it...its only $530

Myself and 2 friends have been running the 4WD lift for 2 years(with 33's), and, are quite happy with it. It is a good lift for the money. IMO

I would say that's a pretty good endorsement for that particular lift.

Did you boys have any driveline vibes after you installed it?

Well I appreciate all the responses. I think I am going to either go with the 4WD kit or the Rubicon Express 3.5" kit. I am getting a lot of good feedback in regard to that kit...and the company was also helpful in answering my questions...

The full traction 3" lift is a good lift for the money as well. It comes with a front adjustable trackbar included. I have been very happy with mine and am running it with Rancho's RSX9000's.

$449.00 and buy your own shocks, but does come with the adjstable track bar.

Im kinda partial to the 4" rough country lift. Been running it a while now and dont have any driveline probs at all. its about 550 bucks and comes with new lower arms and pretty much everything else you listed. Rides good and no vibes at all. Something else to look into.
