Any advise will be appreciated.

Thanks,
The primary difference between the two types of lifts are:

Long arm lifts require cutting off the OEM control arm brackets and welding on the brackets that are provided with the respective lift kit.

Short and mid arms use the OEM control arm brackets.

Choice is yours, depending on personal preference and type of wheeling done. Long arm kits are supposed to maximize suspension travel and axle articulation.

Me? I'm looking hard at the Rock Krawler 3.5" Mid-Arm.
