RE. I have an RC lift, but RE is apparently of better quality. The RC lift is good, but the RE is better.

I'd be careful buying an RE lift (not trying to shut the guy down above me). I wouldve recommended the same but word is that they're having financial troubles so you may not get much in the way of customer service. I also heard its hard to come by one of their lifts now a days.

Well I can find a re it's not hard but it's a toss up between that and a rc because the re comes with everything and id have to buy stuff for the rc like tcase drop brakelins and swaybar discos

RE is backed and owned by 4 wheel parts company now. No need to worry about them becoming extinct. I have the RE 2.5 on my 95 YJ. I basically copied what JP magazine did a while back when they built up their 4 cyl. YJ. I put boomerang shackles in the back and heavier standard ones in the front. Total amount of lift since settling is 3.25 inches. I park next to my buddy with a 2002 TJ with a rough country 2.5 kit (basic one) and I sit as high as his jeep-and he has 33" tires and I have 30" tires still...eventually I'll do 32" when these ones wear out. Here is my 95[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

RE is still in reorganization.....From their website the Pres of 4 Wheel Parts says they hope to begin selling parts by August.

Having run the RE 2-1/2" kit for several years now not sure I'd spend the money again for RE. One blown shock and rusting leaf packs. For twice the price of RC I expected more.

Yeah I checked their site a while back, and talked to a sales person from 4wd on my last order...said it was looking pretty good for them...

If I was gonna do this lift over, I'd go with RE, but maybe try Skyjacker...my buddy that has a jeep shop has had his 4" Skyjacker lift on his 94 YJ for 6 years and it is as good as it was when he put it in...no sagging and still smooth.

OME would be my second choice, just not sure what spring rates I would get.
