To tall as in to easy to flip or to tall as in u dont like getting in it i wanna do the 6 in long arm because they say its more stable i been debating on just doing a 4 but i would not do a long arm then from what i see the long arm has tons more flex the a short and idk if its just me but the bigger the better

There are a ton of long arm kits out there. There are 5 decent lifts the and I know when I say this I will have people coming out of the woodworks blasting me for it. This is not in any particular order. Rubicon express, full traction, clayton off road, rock krawler, old man emu. There are a few others but these are some of the best kits. Do your research and you should be fine. I have a 5.5 in RE lift and it is great. I would not do anything bigger than 6 inches for sure and no body lift going that high.

I have 3.25" suspension and 1" body. Research man, no reason to run 6".

Whoever said a 6" lift is more stable than a 4" doesnt know their butt from a hole in the ground

If you are looking for real stability krisbman has the right idea.

Im not the smartest cat around but logic should tell you the higher you lift a short wheel base/ narrow track width vehicle the less stable it will be.

I really like my RE 5.5 in lift. I needed the extra space because where I am located we do more muddin than rock crawling. The larger tires "37's" and the taller lift help with the larger mud holes. This might not be the best setup for crawling but it works great in the mud. You need to decide what you will be doing with it most.

Because looks is all that matters. And exactly how much serious off roading are you going to do to warrant a lift like that. Are you aware off all the work that comes along with a 6" lift? Like TJ Unlimited said, "Do your research before you make that mistake."
