Sometimes you get what you pay for, so just keep that in mind when buying a suspension for your vehicle. That being said, from my experience with my BDS lift, I'd definitely recommend their products, and you may be able to get a pretty sweet deal at a local 4x4 shop, which would eliminate the hassle of shipping. And BDS warranty is great! One of my buddies smashed up a few of his BDS parts by picking a bad line, and they replaced the parts for him without a second thought!

BDS 3 Inch Lift For ZJ


BDS 4.5 Inch Lift For ZJ

BDS 6.5 Inch Lift For ZJ

I know you're probably not interested in the last two, but I figured I'd post 'em up anyway...

Also check out Iron Rock Off Road.

IRO 3.5" ZJ Lift

IRO 4.5" ZJ Lift


Note: I have no experience with rough country personally, but from the people I know who have had them, the all say you'll get a pretty harsh ride...
Here's the sig line from a guy on our local forum:
Rough Country

I hear BDS and Rustys are the same pretty much. And Everyone tells me to go with BDS.

I dunno about that...I've never heard anything bad about BDS! :thumbsup:

As for Iron Rock, everything I've heard about them is positive as well.

I can't say the same for Rusty's...but I've never used their products personally, so I can't really give you a fair opinion on Rusty's...

Later.

We put a 3" BDS kit in my son's ZJ and it works very well. I would recommend it absolutely. Simple to install, tough, and flexes / rides well.

OMG I have RC and that is so true! I swear my tires come off the ground when I hit a speedbump! I'm going to peplace it when I have the $$$

RC is ok I guess but note my upper left control arm is literatly comming apart where it threads together.

Rusty's isn't THAT rough if you don't use their shocks. I am running a rubicon express lift and I am using the rough country shocks (comperable to rusty's) and it rides stiff as a board, but my buddy is running the same lift with bilstein shocks and it rides great. As far as their springs go they don't ride all too bad.

That's ok, I know I get annoying at stores beacause I ask tons of questions about everything and then don't end up buying anything. That's how I know so much. :D

As fas as the "super flex joint" i'm pretty sure this is what Kyle means:



It has a "super-flex" joint on the frame mount side. HTH

I just know that a flex joint is superior to a non flex joint
You will have to break that down for me. I feel dumb. But I dont want to just say ok and act like I know what im saying. this is my jeep at stake here. I dont want to mess her up.
