Suspension Lifts 87 YJ

OK, I suppose this subject has been beat to death but I need some advice from some more experienced hands. I have an 87 YJ and I liked my 3" body lift until it pushed through the floor. Now I want a 3" or so suspension lift. I use the Jeep for hunting in Minnesota so I need to be able to drive it on the highway about 100 miles max to and from hunting land. I looked at Fabtech, Superlift, and some others. Money is not going to be an issue. Is there some kind of consensus on a good lift for my needs?

BDS, OME or RE. BDS has the best warranty and I love mine. You will be hard pressed to find a bad reveiw on them

Rubicon express actually has the best warranty of the three. BDS requires you be the original owner while RE will warranty any of their springs regardless of who purchased them.

SYE and CV Shaft is a must if your going to leave pavement IMO

But I would highly reccommend a 1" Motor Mount lift over a Tcase drop that way you do not loose belly pan height
