Suspension Lift

Looking for some opinions on suspension lifts. Time to proceed with a 4in lift on my 84 CJ7 rebuild, Not a daily driver but need "streetability" plus moderate trails. Looking between BDS, RC, Skyjacker etc or the RE, and will going to 33" BFG M/T's. The RE extreme duty package is just a LOT more expensive $1289 without shocks whereas most other packages are $7-800, but it seems to come more complete (trasfer lowering, pitman arm etc.) and it lets you go to 2.5" wide springs. So question is? Is the RE really worth the extra $400 bucks and will I really notcie a difference? Or just go with a cheaper RC/skyjacker system?

I have a BDS 4" kit on my CJ7. It is currently on it's SECOND Jeep and still going strong. I LOVE it!
Beer is the answer - it doesn't matter what the question is!

I have read alot of good things about BDS and RE. I also read that skyjack is a little stiffer. Basically you pay for what you get in this scenario, but from past reading, BDS is a good choice
