sorry lift ???

Hey everyone i am new to this. I have a 06 wrangler x with a 3in BDS lift on it. I want to go to a bigger lift and have been looking at the RE 4.5in superflex kit. I know its a short arm lift also so how much am i going to gain by going to that lift? I think the lift I have now still has the stock arms on it so it would make it a short arm also right? I am not sure so any help would be great. I am not looking to do alot of rock crawling except at the local truck night so i dont need a long arm lift. I mostly want to do off roading. It is my daily driver also.

The 4.5 superflex is a short arm. I am pretty sure it requires an SYE and driveshaft as well.

The RE 4.5 is a short arm, and yes you will require an SYE. RE's lifts usually run about an inch higher than they advertise so you will get about 5.5 inches of lift out of it.

My last lift was a RE 4.5 kit. It worked well but I decided to go with the RE 5.5 long arm. I think you will really like the 4.5 kit.
