what suspension lift to get?

I currently have a very old flattened out rancho 4" lift and I'm going to be getting a new lift. I would like to get opinions on what everybody thinks is the best lift to get along with what shocks to run. I have 33" tires and 4.10 gears and I'm going to stay with the 33's. I need pretty decent articulation. I do alot of mountain trips with some mild rock crawling and alot of desert runs. Any opinions will be appreciated, thanks.

What are your goals,

DIY factors

There is no blanket answer when it comes to suspensions. I would only give input based on what your specific needs are. Some of the guys here swear by SOA and others say that the expensive "Rubicon Express" is the only way to go. It all depends on function and price!

Re: what suspension lift to get?

I have a skyjacker set on my cj 7 . The springs are tapered , have teflon pads , are shot peened and flex well for a sua setup .I even used the hydro shocks . The price was reasonable and the on road characteristics are good too . After having had this setup and others (pro comp, superlift) I am going to throw a skyjacker setup in my cj 6 too . For reference sake I do littlr rockcrawling in the 7 and a little daily driving .
