Opinions wanted: Need help deciding on a lift

Okay, I am at a dilemna. I am planning to lift my 90 yj. I thought I had decided on the RE 4.5" extreme duty, It seemed to be the most complete kit for a SU configuration. Then I happened to find a 5" kit from Full-Traction Suspension, which is actually 3" springs and a 2" shackle reversal lift. It also seems to be complete, and the price is only a few dollars more than the RE kit. So my question is for opinions regarding my application. Which do you think would be better? My jeep is a daily driver, and I hope to attend a good trail ride at least once a month. I am planning on 33" tires.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Thanks for the help.

Personally, I would stick to the RE kit. Also, keep in mind the issues with a SRS kit. First, a 2" lift sounds a bit high. Also, that's 2"'s to the front. You still have to level out the rear. Additionally, when you do a SRS, you change the articulation angle. No longer does the axle travle up and down, it moves at an angle that loves to eat your fender wells. Now, in defense of SRS (I use them), they do reduce the amount of shock that travles through the rig. Which results in a lot less wheel hop. So, you take the good with the bad. The fender problem is nothing a little metal trimming won't fix.

For your application, I would still go with the RE kit.
