I can tell you from experience that BB with stock springs does not ride as good as a = lift gained with quality coils. I replaced my AEV 2" bb lift with Rock Krawler triple rates and it rides much nicer on and off road. On my last vehicle I had both BB spacer lift and a TF performance coil lift and it was the same the coils provided a much better ride.

Agreed my AEV triple rate springs and new shocks ride a lot better than stock. I can especially tell in my pothole ridden neighborhood. Love the ride. Highway is great as well.

They were way better than the stock tires in the snow. As far as wear, I don't really know. It isn't my daily driver but my weekend you. I barely have any miles on them.

This thread had made it clear to me that 2.5" is the best looking lift on a JK. Just my opinion.

How much actual lift did you get out of the rancho?

I think you'll like it, takes about an hour or so to install with air tools, If you can overlook the time wasted dealing with frozen bolts.
The body lift is fine and doesn't do anything weird to handling.
Nor did it create any problems with wiring, hoses, linkage, etc.
It does make it easier to route added wiring and hoses.
The lift is slight enough that the only place you notice it "other than wheel to fender", is the bumpers.
But my rear bumper is a replacement, and my front is 6" channel iron, so you cant tell anyway.
