Help me decide (lift)

Here is what I have narrowed it down too:

Rubicon Express 4" standard suspension lift with shocks. $819.99

Rubicon Express 4 1/2" extreme duty without shocks. $1129.99

Rough Country 4" lift with shocks $449.99

I would like to use a OME lift but the largest I have found
is the 2 1/2" lift and I am going to run 33" tires. No compromise on that.

So, any ideas or thoughts please.

Rc lift has everything you need, very complete, and for the money you can't beat it

Here is my RC 4" lift in the before and after. I did do the SYE and I just ordered the Tom Woods driveshaft. Pics won't load but look at my profile pic. Looks great didn't break the bank and we will go out and see how well it works real soon. It was easy to install by myself and the directions were easy to use.

I did the RC 4in, greaseable boomerang shackles, extended brake lines, extended bump stops, sway bar disconnects and rugged ridge steering rack. Couldnt complain but I did remove the front and rear trac bars for more flex and drive comfort.

BDS not an option? For the money and quality it exceeds some of the ones you are looking at (on par with the RE). I am in the process of deciding myself and have basically narrowed it down to RE and BDS but am leaning heavily towards the BDS. I contacted them yesterday actually and to check on ordering just springs and hardware since I dont need the drop brackets and stuff. That will help save a little money as well. Plus they have a nearly legendary warranty. Maybe an option for you if you have not given them a look (sorry, I know you are trying to narrow it down, not expand options ha ha). Good luck

I called BDS and they only offer in separate springs is the 3 1/2 lift. Don't think that will work with 33's though.. Not a bad price really though. 4 springs with bushings for 525.00

Metal cloak fenders! . They are a bit spendy though.
