I went with the RE Long Arm, but now I am going to swap in the Rockkrawler 7" springs and long travel shocks with built in bump stops. The only other advantage to the Rockkrawler is the 3 link in the back.
rubicon express extreme kits are the only way to go!!! you spend a little more money up front but in the long run you will be better off. not only will it flex and wheel better but if your jeep is a daily driver like mine you will love the ride. since i lifted my jeep it now rides 10x better than the stock supension. plus the kit comes with everything you will need. shocks, steel braided brake lines front and rear, rear shims for the axle, quick disconnects for the sway bar, t-case lowering kit.
heck about the only thing it does not come with is someone to put it in...
i have a 95 yj with 4.5"
I am thinkin the RE long arm kit would be the best bet. I dont like the idea of endless rear travel. Seams to me if you jump a 3 link rear since there isnt a trac bar, you might bust shock bar pins, and who knows whatelse. for just a rockkrawler it might be ok with a huge limiting strap, but still, you dont gain that much more flex over the RE kit. I have seen pics of the RE kit with the shocks off and its gota be doing a 1400 on a 27degree ramp. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">
