Hey guys! Im looking to put a 2.5" suspension lift on my '95 YJ. Im wondering what a great lift would be to get. I have been told my a couple of my friends that Rough Country is cheap but definitly a rough ride. I would like to stay on the cheaper side but am saving for one so Im not against the idea of spending a bit. Lol So I thought Id get your opinions on what to get.

Best ride = Old Man Emu.
Best warranty = BDS Suspension.
If you daily drive it you can't go wrong with OME - I can personally vouch for that. ARB only makes one spring for the YJ, and they do it well. OME springs and shocks are probably as close to a Cadillac ride as you'll ever get on a YJ. I highly recommend OME to anyone who wants a 2.5" lift for their YJ.
If you wheel it hard and might break/bend the springs, you can't go wrong with BDS Suspension. Unlimited lifetime, no BS warranty.
Rubicon Express also has good reviews, kit comes complete with the essentials, and isn't quite as pricey as OME or BDS suspension.
There are people who are satisfied with Rough Country, but from what I gather, the selling point of Rough Country springs for the YJ is the price, not the quality of the springs or ride.
Don't have them but I've heard good things about Zone springs (have not heard any negative) and they are pretty inexpensive
I agree. I run their 4" springs up front. They ride smooth and flex great. Here's a poser flex shot today. Granted I'm still running my old sagged RC springs out back until I can afford the rear zone springs, Im running zone springs up front. The only thing limiting them are brake lines for now. Can't go wrong with the previous lift brands mentioned either. Heck I almost committed to BDS for replacing my RC springs.

you jeep looks like mine, except i had to cut off the flares, and they were all rusty and no real good access to the screws. I plan on putting just a basic upgrade of the suspension, and up to a 2"-3" lift.. so i am curious to see what stock vs 2" or 3" lift looks like.
Does anyone have pics of their lift project, with a before and after look on the same vehicle?
