It's probably a combination of the firmer Rubicon springs with worn out shocks, worn out control arm bushings, and load range D or E tires that are over-inflated. Replace your shocks and bushings and air your tires down and it should make things drastically better... of course if your going to tear into it that much then you are already doing most of the work involved in doing a lift. As far as recommending a lift, that all depends on what you are doing. Personnaly I went with a Currie 4" on my 2005 Rubicon LJ and it rides better than stock now.

Well welcome to the forum, and you should fill out your profile so people can help you out. But to answer your question it sounds as though you have some worn out parts. How is the front end sitting compared to the back? Check center of flare to to ground to get an idea. With a winch on the front it can accelerate wear on components, and with the roads in NJ stuff wears out even faster.
Hey stwilson74, Thanks for the advice. I will replace the shocks and bushings. Do you have any recommendations on what brand to use? How does that 4" lift affect your gas mileage? I was considering the 2.5 OME lift, but as you know the Rubicon doesn't get the best gas mileage to begin with the lift and bigger tires i was afraid I wouldn't want to travel to far from home.
Jrob05, I will update it now. haha. I guess you know these roads well. They are especially bad after those storms we had over the winter. My jeep is a 2004 rubicon totally stock except the winch. I will check the heights.
I am going to look around for the best brands of shocks. Please let me know if you have any part suggestions. Do you get offroad much?
