Old Man Emu vs Rubicon Express

I'm up for a new suspension system and I'm kind of stuck between two options. OME or RE?
I want to hear from you people out there. The ones who already use these brands, or know from first hand, their pros and cons.
The OME "CJ to YJ spring conversion kit" that's being sold (from 4WD and Quadratec), is not produced from OME. That's 100% confirmed, after contacting the company and a local ARB dealer. That made me a bit sceptical about it. But other than that I found that people who use OME are very much pleased with it.
I don't know much about the RE extreme duty kit. But I hear that many people use it and are happy with it. I don't know how stiff it is. Is there much difference between the 2.5" and 4" suspension lift(other than the obvious height)?
Let me know what you think. Also tell me of a dealer where I can buy OME products at a good price.
Thanks a lot guys!!

I can only say that my R.E lift is the best lift I've ever experienced.
The kit is very complete. Does the OME kit come with brake lines, shocks, shims, transfer case drop kit and a new pitman arm?

The R.E kit does.

I used to own two CJ's...Perhaps a 3rd is in the future?

Ditto on the RE. I'm running the 4.5" set-up along with a 1" Daystar BL, RS 9000X's. Awesome set.

I bought from PORC (Performance Offroad Center), Alex. I think he's a member here. Great service and the BEST prices I've seen anywhere!! http://www.performanceoffroadcenter.com/

Good Luck!
