Best long arm

What is the best long arm lift for a Wrangler Rubicon unlimited 2006. I want to run 35 inch tires.

The two most common talked about here are the Rubicon Express and Clayton. There is a really expensive one Nth Degree which is close to 3-4 grand... Full traction makes a good one from what I hear too.

I would rank Clayton Off-Road, Treks/TnT Customs and Poly Performance w/coilovers as the best long arm kits available. Very pricey but you wanted the best.

www.tntcustoms.com
www.claytonoffroad.com
www.polyperformance.com

Rubicon Express and AEV/Nth Degree are other great long arms, but not the *best*

I have a RockKrawler kit and love it. I can't really compare it to anything since I never had the others but I haven't heard any real negative things about their products except that they are HEAVY (solid CAs). They are priced better than their competion.

I have a Clayton Kit and have NO regrets. Really good customer service also.

How long have you had the Clayton? How do you use your Jeep ? Any cool things about it that make it unique?

Mostly trails. Rocks and mud.

You break it, they replace it warrantee. 4 Link rear is AWSOME!

Claytonize your Jeep and never look back.

Clayton is as tough as it gets with the best warranty in the industry

I've had my rear only for a year and compete on it

x2 on that. I have had mine for a year also and do pretty much the same. You get really awesome articulation out of it and it is sturdy as hell.
