Lift Advise

Hello I am wanting to lift my jeep lj more but I can't decide if I should go with a RK 5.5 LA or a RE 4.5 LA. I already have a 1.25" BL and it'd stay to had the extra height. I'm gonna be running 35s and would like to move up to 37s in the future, I am aware of all the re-gearing and likely axle swaps that would have to take place. I'm going for mostly looks cause it's my DD but I want performance/clearance for when I go off road. I don't rock crawl, and I don't know much about these lifts. I would like some advice from jeepers who have had these lifts themselves, how safe are they? How do they handle? What are your thoughts? Feel free to post pictures too!

highly suggest looking into a savvy 4" lift. if you really feel that you NEED a LA lift, check out Clayton

I'll check out both of those too. How much of an overall power loss is there with 4.5-5.5 lift +1.25" BL. Or even with the 4" lift? Can you notice a difference?

power loss? as in engine power.... none. that depends more on the size tires you want to run and the gear ratio you choose to match them

Yeah I understand that part, power loss more as in a lower center of gravity kinda way, if that makes sense.
