which would you prefer ome or Rubicon?

I'm buying one of these today..the ome kit, which one I do not know...or the Rubicon 3.5" but again overall kit unknown...which would you say is the best overall ride? I plan on a full kit with springs shocks and full leaf packs..as far as the other stuff in the kits this is why I need advice on what is really needed as far as control arm things? Are there any discounts anywhere?

Another question I have is about add a leafs...now I know that they're not a good thing when adding to old sagging packs...but what about adding them to new stock ones? Is it still better to buy the lifted packs vs adding to new stock packs?... Also are the heavy duty omix leafs really lifted 1.5"?

How high are you going for? 3.5"?
I have ome 3" leaf pack at the rear and it rides very nice and soft. Never tried RUbicon so I can't comment on that.

At 3.5" you are really boarderlining the control arms and drive shaft. You may need t case drop and longer LOwer control arms.

I've run both spring packages. Ome is great product, very nice driving characteristics. For me more difficult to get in lift heights that I wanted. RE, easy to get at a cheap price, large selection of lift heights, but doesn't drive as nice as OME. I currently run RE springs all around and like them. Leafs are a little stiff when unloaded, but ride nice when you get all your gear in and don't sag very much. No complaints for either. If OME would offer more lift selections I would probably have them right now. I'm at 6.5 inchs of lift.

If you go with OME get the heavy duty springs. I had the medium duty springs on my last XJ and one of them started sagging after about 6 months of hard driving/towing/wheeling.
