re 4.5 super flex

I'm leaning towards the re 4.5 super flex for my 04 x. Is there any thing else I need besides a sye or is there a kit just as nice for a little less? Not my daily driver.

What else you need is a function of your ability to put up with mediocrity and where you wheel. There are much better options out there, yes.

Though Rubicon Express had a period when they were shipping their control arms with bad bushings, I can't say they make a bad suspension lift. I ran their 4.5" long arm suspension for years without problem and other than the long arms hanging up on the rocks, it never gave me any problems.

That said, that Jeep got stolen and my replacement Jeep has a 4" Currie suspension using Currie's short control arms that use Johnnie Joints. You can't beat a Currie or one that is based on Currie's as Savvy Offroad's is. One thing for sure, my Currie arms don't get hung up in the rocks.
