Gettin rid of 3" body lift want suspension lift

My 2005 LJ 6 speed came with a 3" body lift, dual-tubular bumpers, steering stabilizer, bushwacker fender flares, and 33x12.5x15 ProComp M/Ts. The stance with the bushwackers and 33's is fine and the ride is smooth, however I hate the look of the 3" body lift because it only lifts the body and my bumpers hang too low. I want about the same amount of lift and ride quality but want the 3" body lift gone. I also don't want to mess with the sye or driveline too much, so I am wonder you guys opinion of the 3.25" RC suspension kit (which is the 2.5" with .75" coil spacers) or the 3.75" RC suspension kit (2.5" with 1.25" body lift)?

Respect is earned and Honor is given

If u want a good soft ride, DO NOT go with Rough Country. They use 180lbs compression for the coils. I have it for the 6" lift and that lift fought me every step of the way and when I called them they acted like I was bothering them. I got help once, the one guy was nice about it though, the other 4 werent pretty rude about it. Id advise u leave about a 1" body lift and then go with the Rustysoffroad 3" lift. Much softer springs and shocks. Thats just my advice if u like ur kidneys. Pretty cheap route too.

Teraflex makes some soft springs.....that sag after a year.

Rock Krawler has a very nice ride that stays pretty close to what it claims.

Procomp actually makes some decent springs too.

Rough Kidney, Skycrapper and Rauncho are all not my cup of tea.

I have been using a 2.5" RC progressive rate spring , a 3/4" spacer ( before RC was offering it ) and a 1"BL and another key components are the 4 OME NitroCharger. Rides better than the 97 I had with RC 4" kit and 1"bl on 35s

RC's 2.5" coils are progessive and actually have a very nice ride (for a wrangler). Only thing about them I didn't like was that the low rated end is a little too low, and the high end is a little too high! Meaning it feels a hair loose till you hit a big bump then you really feel it! I have since had an OME kit, BDS, and Rancho. None of which I could say rode any better, just differently in their own ways.
