Im sure someone with more experience will chime in. But out of those 6 i would choose the RC X-series due to the control arm joints. i have always been told to stay away from urethane joints due to the fact that they put stress on the axle and frame mounts.

I have the 4" Zone Off Road. It came on the Jeep when I bought it. It was a very basic kit and was really only springs and shocks but I don't have any complaints about it. It rides pretty nice.

As I've been building it I've already put in new adjustable front and rear track bars and I'm in the process of replacing the control arms. I've replaced the rear uppers so far with the Rough Country X-Flex and like them a lot.

Rough country kits are ****, i have one myself and ended up replacing the shocks after about 2000 miles. from experience, invest ina nice kit that will last. Rubicon express, Full traction, Fabtech, Old man emu are some companies i'd look at. and if you have any thought of going long arms, do it right the first time.

With all due respect, you do get what you pay for. There is a reason people are steering you to Currie or Rokmen when considering a short arm lift kit. If you search the threads you'll find a variety of opinions on different kits. I went with Rokmen becuase I felt the thicker tubes and huge johnny joints would provide what I'm looking for.

X2 on doing it right the first time. Save up some more and start off with a real solid lift. That way, when you start adding more parts down the road (which you will do) you can focus on other things rather than dealing with your rough riding beginner lift you put on when you were first infected with the jeep bug. Ask me how I know.

I have both uppers and lowers front and back. Check out Imped's build if you want to get an idea on his thoughts. I try to do everything in a set. I figure out all the componets I need and do them all at once. For example, if you are doing a tummy tuck you might need to do a BL with it, a MML, and a low pro tranny mount, and you might need new driveshafts. Its saves you a lot of money if you plan...otherwise you end up re-doing things (like me and my exhaust...3 times in 3 months).
