Rubicon...Pros and Cons

I been reading a lot about the Rubicon Express lifts and everyone seems to like them. I don't have a lot of money, but I found the 3.5" lift for $569 at <a href="http://www.offroadtoystore.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=OTS&Product_Cod e=RE7002" target="_blank">Off-Road Toys- Rubicon Express 3.5" Lift</a>. Does that have everything I would need for 33x12.50x15? I'm not sure if it worth the extra $150 over a SuperLift 4" at <a href="http://www.superlift.com/jeep.htm" target="_blank">SuperLift 4" Lift</a>. Let me know what you think. I have tried looking at different lifts but I keep coming back to the SuperLift.

</font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial"><strong>The RUBICON EXPRESS Wrangler 3.5" standard kit includes everything needed to run up to a 33" tire. Off road performance is outstanding. You can add parts as you need them to suit your style of off-roading. This kit can easily be transformed into a 4.5" or 3.5" "Superflex" kit without throwing anything away. EACH KIT INCLUDES: Front coils, rear coils, 4 shocks, extended end links (front and rear), rear track-bar relocation bracket, extended bump stops and a transfer case lowering kit.</strong></font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">great ride. great offroad. easily upgradeable. the DT3000's are a great shock. good company. yes, 33x12.50 will be fine.

Whoa there, Mr. Bill!!! I didn't mean for it to be like that. I'm just new and had a friend who knows a little about jeeps tell me that the SuperLift would work. I'm actually really thinking about the Rubicon 3.5" Standard b/c I don't need the extra off-road abilities b/c I live in Florida. But, my question is now, with my stock 15x8 rims, are the tires going to stay under the fender flares? I don't know if I want them outside the wheel well. Let me know.

That was a bit harsh Mr. Bill. He did ask a legitimate question.

I didn't see the other posts as well, but I have noticed a few people rather than hitting reply have been starting new threads. Juts trying to keep the peace, don't wanna scare off the newbies.

It's just an example of what a friend of mine that instals lifts for a liveing has told me for years "You can't tell people anything". people think what they read in magazines is the gospel.

Asking questions with those who have personal experience is a whole lot easier than trying to talk to a magazine...
Plus they've "been there and done that", so I get to learn from other people's mistakes (as to not make them myself)
