What size tires do you plan on running?

IMO, I would go with Rubicon Express.

I'd get the 4.5" Superflex kit (unless you are determined to go LA) and put the rest of the money somewhere else.

Just a suggestion...

I have a Full Traction 6" Longarm on my '05 Rubi, I like it alot. A little more money than you want to spend, but I feel it's well worth it. Very good quality.
I've also herd some of Teraflex's products are not up to par lately.
I've also herd nothing but good things about the Clayton products, might be worth checking them out.

I have been satisfied with my Teraflex springs, but I don't think I would buy a complete suspension from them. IF you are determined to go longarms spend the money on a good system. Not saying you have to spring for Clayton's (although it is the best), but at least spend the money on something like Full Traction or Rubicon Express. Otherwise stick with short arms for the time being.

The only prob ive had with tera is i didnt buy full leaf packs, the coils are holding lift like a champ and are very soft and flexy. I dont know if tera still includes front discos or not still with they're kits. Im into normal priced shocks so i bought trailmaster, and i didnt have to measure cuz t.m. sell's shocks by amount of lift application and that has worked for mr so far. 30 bucks a shock
That was less money spent on shocks than any discos i could find.Of course i have an xj so kits are less than half the money..:beerbang:

I don't know about the Clayton, I would guess it's similar to the Full Traction. I love my Full Traction, it rides better and is more stable on the freeway than the stock suspension. I drive about 80 miles round trip to work. Not a single problem yet.

I have never heard a complaint about Rubicon Express parts. They are expensive, but you can buy their stuff alot cheaper from distributors than you can directly from them. I would call Jeeperz Creaperz for a quote on a Rubicon Express long arm kit before making any decision.
