Is it worth it

So i was set on buying the ultimate lift package that included a 4.5 SA rubicon express lift from 4x4groupbuy.com for $3185, but i was looking on their today and saw that the 5.5 LA ultimate extreme rubicon express kit was 3950, and it comes with all the goodies the other kit has

the goodies are
the lift kit
1-Short Shaft Kit from Advance Adapters;
1-Tom Woods CV Custom Drive Shaft;
1-Daystar 1" Body Lift;
1- 1" Motor Mount from M.O.R.E. (Rubber Bomb Proof);
4-Goodyear 35"12.5" R15 MTR's (tires subject to availability);
4- Black Rock Crawler Rims;

so is it worth it to spend the extra 800 or so for the long arms...

In a word... absolutley! Long arms have so many advantages over short arms its crazy. Your on road ride will become like stock again (even better in most cases), your control arm angles are MUCH better, the flex is much better, etc.
