Rubicon Build (long arm question)

Guys I just picked up my Rubicon and wondering what you guys recommend best bang for buck on lift. Really was wanting to go long arm, and I see that the range in lift inches is like 4-6" , rough country making a 6" for well under the price of a BDS 4".... I'm building it to clear 40's and needing to figure which lift will best suite me. Will be daily driven and lightly trail ridden, nothing super aggressive! Thanks for your time guys!!!

If you are going to run 40 in tires, the lift will be one of the least expensive items on your list to do. Like any other hobby, you build for the primary purpose first. So what type of wheeling will you be doing and work from there.

Are you set on 40s? Seems like an expensive venture to be a daily driver.

not set on 40's but I have bought one before that was on 40's and one that was on 37's.... The one I had on 40's was a 08 auto, and the one on 37's was a 12 6spd... The one on 37's did drive a lot better and did great I took it all over the place, the one on 40's looked awesome and not many people in my area do 40's is why I was wanting to do it.... But Im guessing its just alot better to stay on the 37!

Build to your purpose and save a lot of money. Building to satisfy testosterone will land you in the poorhouse.
