Need a TJ Wrangler X Lift

I'm looking for a good relatively inexpensive. I have people tell me to go with rough country and someone else tells me they're crap and get sky jacker, then it's RK and then teraflex, and so on. I would like to know what lift is the right one for me. I off road hard and would like a sturdy lift that won't fall apart and can still make my jeep driveable. It's my only car so I can't afford to have it fall apart. Please Help.

First answer:

- How much ldo you have to spend including installation if you are not doing the work?

- What size tires are you planning on?

(RK, SJ are not recommended)

I have the RC 2in lift on 31s. It's pretty dang stiff, but it's not my DD, so the stiffness doesn't bother me.
Some folks poo poo the RC in favor of pricier stuff. Just depends on how much you plan on demanding of your rig.

But don't you mean RC not RK? Rough Country and SkyJacker are both crappy lifts. But RK (RockKrawler) is a good brand.

I'll only speak about what I know. I have the OME Ultimate kit from DPG offroad. Very nice kit and once I get my rear tire carrier on the ride will be smooth as can be (I have the HD springs but no spare right now because it won't fit the stock carrier). And for just the OME 2.5" springs and shocks I believe it's only like $700. So it's a quality lift that won't break the bank completely, and will allow you to run 32's or 33's with other minor mods.

Sounds like OME is the way to go then. Thanks a lot!
