I have always been a fan of rubicon express kits. Had one on my TJ and was more than pleased

I have heard good things about the AEV kit

I will be going with the Rock Krawler Mid arm setup on my rig though. I love the way it flexes

cant go wrong with the poly performance stage 3, probably the most complete quality lift on the market...

X2 on Poly Performance Stage 3

Poly Performance Inc.*::*Suspension Kits/Parts*::*Jeep Suspension Systems*::*2007+ JK Wrangler Suspension System*::*Poly Performance*::*Poly Performance Jeep JK Stage 3 Synergy Suspension System - JK Synergy Suspension Systems, Fox Racing Shox, Beard

I can tell you I initially had a craptastic 3" Black Diamond lift, which was a complete waste of time and money. As you can see in my signature, I have removed almost everything from Black Diamond and have almost all Poly Performance steering and suspension components. I wish I would have went with PP to begin with. This thing rides and drives a lot better on the street than it should for a vehicle this big, this tall, and this capable offroad. You get what you pay for. Sure, they are expensive, but how many Jeeps do you know that can toy with Mustangs and other cars on the street, even through twisties, while running 35's? I have to use cruise control because otherwise I look down at the speedometer to find I am doing 85 to 90 mph when it feels like I am doing 55.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

No kidding, I'm sure its a nice kit, but what a ton of money for short arms! I would go with the rock krawler triple threat long arm, but as money and welding for the install is an issue for me, its the 4.5 inch AEV kit. AEV has really done a lot of R&D and their kit works well without doing driveshafts, etc. Perfect for what it sounds like you want.
