Black diamond is a top of the line, ProComp I have heard mixed reviews. Go with a 4" lift with a 1" spacer to lower the drivetrain. You will just want more lift later if you dont. With the spacer you can avoid a SYE for now. I run a Rough Country 4"

Black Diamond a few year's ago was made by Warn, then sold to either skyjacker or superlift..can't recall. Anyway, they are decent. Prp Comp is okay, but I hear the shocks suck. Don't know anything about the last one. I would also look into Big Dicks suspension as I have heard decent things about those.

The new Rough country lifts have gotten good reviews from a lot of the members here. They are also one of the less expensive kits out there. Also, as crafty said, go with a 4" kit from the start. There is very little price difference between the kits and eventually you would want to go bigger than the 2".

I would not HIGHLY recommend rough country. I installed my kit last June, started out great but my springs have flattened out some. Running 33's and with flexing, my tub was slicing into my tread. Cut my tub and put on TJ rear flares to fix problem until I do my springover conversion.
