2003 Rubi lift options

Hey guys....

New to TJ's as I currently own a 94 YJ. I am not as familiar with the coil springs as I am with leaf springs. What lifts do you guys recommend? I have the RE lift on my YJ but I am not sure how RE does on the coil spring lifts? What companies do most you guys recommend? and which should I avoid?

I am looking to run 33's with aftermarket wheels....

Let me know what you all recommend and why.

Thanks so much.

For 33s, I recommend either a RE 2" BB + 1" BL or a OME 2.5" lift + 1" BL. The RE 3.5" lift is also a good one.

Rocky....how do you like the OME shocks?

I hear they ride nice?

Or you could go with the AEV Highline kit and run 33's with no lift. It's more on the bodywork side, but you would have a unique Jeep.

Get the RE 4.5 SF kit with the 3.5 springs.

I did a quick google and saw some AEV kits....looks interesting....Do I even want to ask how much that will set me back?

The price has not been released yet, but I have seen different reports ranging from $1500 - $1900 (I'm hoping more around $1000). It allows you to run 33's with no lift, 35's with 2" lift, and 37's with about 3". I like it because it will help keep the Jeep stable, and since most Jeeps spend more time on than off road, it's a big plus.
