3.5 in BDS or 3 in Rough Country

I have decided to go with a 3.5 in BDS or 3 in Rough Country, has anyone had good or bad luck with one or the other? Can I run 32 in tires?

no experience with BDS but the rough country kit has been real good, rides kinda rough at first but is smooth now!

Ditto to Atropine. I put a 3" RC lift on my 95 Yj and couldn't be more pleased w/ it. I haven't experienced any vibration (KOW) as of having it lifted for over a year. It is a great lift and I highly recommend it to any one! Good luck and enjoy!

I love my BDS. Great flex off-road and rides real nice on road.

The warranty and quality of the BDS is unmatched by anyone. You can get a 2.5-3" BDS kit for around $400 0r 3.5-4" for $500 plus shipping. There should be a local shop that sell's BDS so go to there site and use there locater. I have experience with the RC lifts but feel the BDS kit is a better value.
