Need some help choosing

I was trying to decide between a rubicon express super flex 3.5 inch lift or the 4.5, or is there somethin better I should be looking at that is in kind of the same price range? I have 33s right now with a 2 inch lift but I rub way too much whenever disconnect the swaybars offroad.

Have you explored mml's and bl's? Keeping your driveline closer to stock ultimately means less wear..aside from shocks and springs I would explore the cheaper option I mentioned above. Besides, what you save from not doing a full suspension lift means you can spend on some nice fenders that'll accept those bigger tires your looking for! Don't forget to regear! but perhaps someone else a better suggestion than myself! just my .02!

What I do not like about the RE 3.5" lift is that it only had adjustable upper control arms. I could not get my thrust angle correct on the rear axle. I have ordered adjustable lower arms from Currie. Waiting for them to come in. Otherwise the kit was easy to install. Many people on here do not like the bushings in the RE products. If I had it to do over again I would have ordered Currie. But then again the price would be significantly higher.

Thanks. You do have a good point if I did a smaller BL and run tube fenders id be golden. And more $$$ in my pocket. Good advice.
