Default Rancho lift vs. Skyjacker

I'm trying to decide if I want to use a Rancho 2" or a Skyjacker 2" lift for my 4door 09 wrangler unlimited. Either one better than the other or is it personal preference?

What type of wheeling do you do?
How size tires?
Strictly daily driver?
Quality is not ideal with those lifts and I would avoid rough country as well.
You can get 2" lift with just spacers and still retain the quality stock ride.

i'd imagine both of those lifts are a budget boost (spacers) and it probably doesn't matter what one you buy.

I did a 4" skyjacker econo lift on my 97. I think its held up quite well. Handles great in the corners and even better off road. The minute you lift it you'll wanna go bigger tho. only downside
