Honestly, for the average XJ owner, doing average type of wheeling, Id go with either Rusty's or RE's kits with emphasis on RE. Not everyone out there is out for some King of the Hammers type ****, either one of those should get you to where you want to be, and if you are using it enough you'll learn the shortcomings of your setup and see what needs to be improved.
Thats not the cheapest way but its the best way to tune your setup to your needs as you see fit if this is your first rodeo. Depending on type of wheeling you may never have an issue out of any of those kits, but if you do you will have learned what else you need and what you dont, and real world, first hand experience is greater than web wheeling type research. These people here dont know your wheeling style or needs anymore than a gas station cashier know your previous medical history. A lot of people look down on what Id call entry level companies but they are how most all of us have learned what works and what doesnt. Some people just DONT need high end parts.
That said, if more serious wheeling is your intent, you are better off piecing a kit together with an assortment of more quality parts, assuming you know what you are looking for.
