Bought a 2000 TJ, need lift advice

I happily and sadly just got rid of my YJ for a 2000 TJ Sport with a D44, air, etc. I'll miss the old beast, but a new day is here for me, and I'm ready to start wrenching on the new TJ already. I will wait until spring to do anything to it, but I want to gather info on different brands of lifts. It seems that Teraflex and Rubicon Express are the big dogs for TJ lifts, but what about some other brands, like Superlift or Full Traction?
Has anyone had any experience with the full traction lift? Here's a link to the site:
http://www.full-traction.com/jeepliftsystem.htm
The price seems pretty good, but I know nothing about them. They're a division of Calmini, which I know is big with Samurai guys. Any opinions would be appreciated on what lifts you guys have, and what you would/wouldn't do different now that you look back. Thanks alot! Mark H

Re: Bought a 2000 TJ, need lift advice

I'm curious about the quality of the full traction S/R for my cj? It claims an additional 2" lift while being fully bolt-on. I have a Calmini S/R with 3" National springs right now on my Samurai and the ride improved tremendously w/the addition of the S/R and I would love to do it to my cj if it is a quality product. Anyone have any experience w/this company?

Re: Bought a 2000 TJ, need lift advice

Mark, I can fully recommend Tera Flex products. I have the 3" system and a fixed yolk conversion. It works great and is quiet. Get the 4" lift if you plan on packing alot of equipment and start adding heavy bumpers, winch, etc... I wish I got the 4" since the spring rate is higher. Also have a friend that had the old style flex arms with the external boots. He broke the end where the bushing sits and Tera Flex warrantied it with no questions (actually upgraded to new style for a few $$).

I have heard that the normal arm Rubicon Express lift is noisy (clunks etc)and their customer service is non-existant. The long arm kit has been getting rave reviews, but the cost is better than $2,000.

Think big. If you do a small lift you will just change your mind and your wife or girl friend will be upset since you want to spend MORE money on the darn Jeep.

'98 TJ Sport, 31" BFG's (for now), Tera 3", No-Slip in the Dana 44, Turbo City engine mods, etc.
