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.

Finally paid off...

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?

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

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.
