Smoothest "daily driver" lift to run 35's?

In your guys' opinion, what's the most comfortable or smoothest lift to run 35's? I would like to maybe dabble a little bit with some rock crawling, but I mostly see myself doing trails and maybe some snow stuff and I don't think I want to do a body lift.

I also really like the feel of how the 4 door auto rubi drives stock when I test drove it so I'd like to at least maintain that feel or improve on it if possible. I don't even know if that's possible if you lift it.

Any LA kit should give you want you are looking for. I think the LA kits on the 4dr ride miles better than stock.

Also consider that the shocks will have more to do with this than the lift kit. Get the right shocks for the ride you want. Match them to whatever lift for the articulation.

2x Long Arm lifts are really smooth I would never go any other way but they are pricey. You can get some adjustable shocks so you can dial in the ride you want.

If you can't break the bank like the above guys suggested with a LA I would suggest looking at the Rough Country one with the upgraded shocks. I've read lots of good things.

AEV hands down. Rode in a buddies 4dr with the 3.5" AEV lift with high steer kit, 1" body lift and 35" bfg krawlers. Never though such a combo could ride so smooth. Better than stock. Amazing ride quality. It is a pricey kit for all that's in it though. And he did not use the cam bolts, used teraflex adjustable lower front arms instead.

I'm in nearly the same boat as the OP but AEV is not an option, nor is a LA kit. I'm looking at a sub-$800 for a lift.
