rusty's vs rubicon express

I was wondering which lift you guys thought was better for a 93 xj:
Rusty's off-road 6.5 long arm or Rubicon Express 5.5 long arm

If I had to pick one, I'd pick Rubicon Express. Rusty's quality and customer service is some of the worst.

Everyone has different experiences. The guys at Rusty's were a GREAT help with my order, and info after I received it. They were very nice, very professional.

I love my Rusty's 3" lift, and have no experience with RE. I have heard that the RE rear springs will sag a bit more over time.

These are the two lifts that i am really thinking about. I know you can spend $5000 and have the ultimate lift. Rusty's is bolt on and RE is Mig weld per their new instructions on the web.

Your experience is definitely the exception to the rule.
