I am debating between Rubicon Express 4.5 vs Pro Comp Stage II?

What are your desired results and planned use?
Why 4 1/2" of lift?
How much are you willing to spend for the desired results?
What is your credit score?

Man..tough crowd. I will be doing a lot of off roading parks. I am basically looking for best product for the price. My price range is 1500-3000

Then you can afford a 1.5 to 3 in lift...a 4.5 in lift is extreme and a "rule of thumb" is 1k per inch if done "properly." Keep in mind you only need about 2.5 in to run 35s on a JK...

X2^^ 4.5" not really required unless Xtreme wheeling and then you'll be looking in the $4500-5000 for a proper lift.
