I'll vouch for the OME+JKS. Thats what I run on mine and ride is much improved and the lift is about perfect for 33s. Cant speak to the RCD, as I have no experience with it.

Not sure about the Jeep world, but in the GM truck world, RCD is considered top of the line.

I am really interested in this kit as well! I have a stock 2005 with an Auto. I want a lift, but not too much. Especially since it seems that late model autos with overdrive have more vibration issues. I want to have the option to run 32's, but will start with 31's.

I really want to know about the 3" RCD Suspension lift. I may just have to be my own guinea pig. This would be all I need to acheive my goals.

Since I really like bilsteins, I am also considering a 2" BCD spring kit minus the shocks and sourcing a set of bilsteins myself. Later I could always add a BL.

I am surprised that no one has broken from the emu track and tried RCD, but I also can't blame someone for going with known good.

One more thing to consider is when you install anything over 3.75 of suspension lift, you will need SYE, a new rear drive shaft and some other parts which will add up really quickly!

I have been looking at Teraflex and BDS 3" Lift and going to 33's but like they point out when you start getting into the 4" lift a Slip Yoke Eliminatoor and new drive shaft is recommended so that your drive line angle is correct.

Thats so crazy that the only info you can find of any one have the rcd lift is that one forum page. This is because I was looking the other day and could find anything about. This lift must suck or be really new its awesome they come with the bilsteins.
