Long Arm Durability

I am looking at installing either the RE or the Nth/AEV long arm system. Can any of you share your likes or dislikes about either one of these kits? Mostly driveability and durability, installation is not a concern. I will be putting this on a 2006 Ruby LJ.

'06 Rubicon Unlimited. I wash it so I can get it dirty again. Still miss my CJ.

there both good kits but the nth degree kit is more of a high clearence kit
so there is less stuff hanging below the frame
but the prices is quite high on the nth degree kit
the rubicon kit is a good kit a friend of mine ran the re kit on one jeep and hated the way he would get hung up on the control arms
so when he bought his LJ he put the nth degree kit on and luved it
but again its the cost of the nt degree kit

I like the nth alot but it is very pricey.....I was thinking that the RE lower arms would hang at times.

Clayton makes a really solid long arm lift for the LJ.
