How high and what brand body lift

Okay, I'm sorry about posting so much about ordering 35's but tomorrow is the day and I need to know what lift to buy. I am planning on ordering a body lift but am not sure what brand or how high I should go. Can ya'll please recommend how high and what brand? Also, point me to a kit that has everything cause I'm not sure exactly what I will need.

1.25" JKS, available from most venders that deal in JKS products.

But since I have a 4'' suspension lift as well, will I need extended brake lines?

If you have a 4" lift the lines should probably already be extended.

I'm pretty sure they aren't. I don't really know, but my brother put the lift on and he never mentioned it. It's a rough country lift kit.

Just got off phone with my brother and he said that he didn't extend brake lines. So should I? I don't wheel at all.

you will more than likely need to extend the brake lines. when i put my RE 4.5 on it came with the new brake lines. the original brake lines just werent long enough. so if you have a 4 in on there, surprised they arnt extended already but i would plan on getting the extended lines.

I just installed the JKS 1.25" body lift today, it was easy and simple. The RC lift does not come with extended brake lines. The instructions say you do not need extended brake lines unless you disconnect the anti-sway bar links.
