I wouldn't go with any lift that used a poly bushing in place of a clevite rubber bushing or a johnny joint. Currie, savvy, rubicon express all are good lift systems.

Is your 35 stock or do you have the super 35 kit?

Check out the Zone 4.25 combo lift, 3" suspension and 1.25 BL.

What makes you think that RE belongs in the same category as Currie and Savvy?

The re kit is less cash then the other kits and will exceed the needs of 90% of the people on this forum. And at no point did I say the re lifts were just as good as savvy or currie. Only better then the vast majority of lifts out there.

RE bushings are worse than using stock control arms for a mild 3" lift. You could run 35s with the zone 4.25 combo lift.

95 xj bone stock for now

The only thing I can tell you about the skyjacker lift is that a bunch of folks on here will recommend you get a higher quality setup that costs less and is made by a company that focuses on Jeeps instead of trucks. Look into companies like Savvy instead of the companies with their ads stuck in 4x4 magazines.

If you're on a tight budget Zone is the way to go, skycrapper is overpriced junk.

If you want the best Currie or Savvy is what you need.

Likewise. Go with Currie/Savvy. This is coming from a Rubicon Express suspension owner.
