opinions on 2.5 in. lift kits

I want to get 2.5 in. lift springs and shocks for an 85 CJ. What in your opinion is the best "bang for your buck"?

I am ordering that one. It's a complete 2.5" suspension kit from Superlift that comes with all the leaf springs, mounting hardware, and shock absorbers needed. I've heard of people having problems with the Skyjacker stuff on the CJ5/7 and that Superlift kit is at a great price for what you get.

I have a Rancho 2.5 lift. Very stable on the road, but it does ride firm. I think with a slightly heavier jeep it would ride even better ie; V8 ,hardtop, lots of gear. Make sure with this one to choose soft shocks, it does make a large difference. Good Luck
