BDS...
I helped a friend put a 2.5" BDS on his Jeep then I went wheeling a few times with him... I was most impressed. Good kit, the springs worked really well, they flexed well and if you ever break one you can get another one free... for life.
I liked his kit so much that when I went spring over, I used BDS springs.

Once apon a time I played with legos... Now I have a Jeep

I used to have a 4" Skyjacker on my 91 YJ.
It worked very well both on and off road.

I drive over things.

I just installed a 3" or 3.5" (already forgot) BDS kit last May and have been very pleased with it. You can't beat the lifetime warranty on the springs, and it comes with all necessary parts (i.e. trans drop spacers, brake line relocators, etc) But check and check again your breaklines after you've done the installation (and after you've been riding it for a while), to make sure your tires aren't rubbing the line or you'll get a real creapy feeling when your break peddle sinks to the floor and you're still cruis'n along........

I just put a 4" Rough Country lift on my '94 YJ. It had everything in the kit and it wasn't very expensive. I drive a lot of highway miles and I don't think it is any rougher than before. It took me 14 hrs. myself to install over 3 evenings, but I also had to cut some bolts out that were rusted in. I haven't had it on much rough terrain yet. Just climbing some hills around the farm and drving through the creeks. It flex's pretty good so far for what I have done. I just put too big of tires for the lift because they start to rub when it starts to flex.

What about Rubicon Express HD? I was looking at a 4.5" kit for YJ that looked pretty squared away. Got good reviews. Little pricey though, $900 some odd for the 4.5"
