I need a good reliable lift kit
 
I am going to lift my 2003 rubicon i and am looking for a good reliable kit that wont make the Jeep ride like crap. I qam looking at a 3.5" Rubicon Express kit, does anyone have that kit and how does it ride? Or are there any bettet suggestions?
Thank you

RE has a standard, Super Flex, or a long arm type kit all available in the 3.5" kit form.

What kit are you talking about specifically?

There is no question a long arm kit will have better ride quality over short arms, however you're more prone to getting the arms hung up on the trail.

I have an OME HD 2.5 kit on my Rubicon and could not be happier. Actual lift gained (measured at the bumpers) was 2.75 inches.

I have the 3.5 RE Standard kit and it rides better than any other jeep i drove while i was test driving. Whether it be rubicons, stockers, or other brands of lifts. .like the RC.

I have the RE 3.5 Super Flex kit on my Unlimited and it rides just as good as stock.

I have the twin shocks.. and they seem really good. I would suggest one thing - get an adjustable Trackbar (at the least).. you could wait on the control arms. When i bought my TJ, it already had the RE lift installed with the Stock Trackbar (relocated by drilling a whole in the stock bracket). I hate drilling holes when you should just do it right the first time. So i will be getting a JKS adjustable trackbar to replace (thought about the currie but i dont do any type of extreme offroad so dont need it). If i were to do it all over again - i would just get a Rubicon and leave it stock.. cause it has everything i would need for my particular application. Live and learn

I got the Skyjacker 4" standard lift with nitro shocks... Working fine for me for about three years now :)
