I have an 06 Rubicon Unlimited that I am looking to take to the next level in offroad performance. I am not looking to get any more than a 3'' lift due to the angle of the driveshaft and road driving hazzards. The 4WD 3'' sus. lift looks like a good product- with 33 super swamper SSR radials.. any suggestions??

JeepGuyLJ, a member of the boards, has an Unlimited that is lifted 3" with 32" tires, and it looks great! He is running the Full-Traction 3" Economy lift. Its one of the more complete basic kits out there, and cheaper than the one your looking at, but you got to figure in ~$150 extra for new shocks.

PLUS : since you have an Unlimited you have a longer driveshaft and with a 3" lift you shouldn't have any problems with it vibrating like a regular TJ's short one.

I believe that you have the D44 rear end, on your unlimited. It does not have a slip yoke. Your d-shaft is also longer, and has two u-joints. I really do not think you would have a problem, even with a 4" susp. lift.
I also just noticed that you have the Rubi, LJ, so I know you have the D44 rear axle, and if it makes you feel any better, I have a 4" susp. lift on our Rubi, and did not have to put the drop on the skid plate. It is still in factory position, with absolutely no bad vibes. You have to realize that all Jeeps, unfortunately, are not created equally, and do not always share the same problems, which in this case, is your good luck.
