I have a 1980 cj-5 and was wondering what brand suspension lift I should go with. I want something on the 2 1/2" range. This is going to be my daily driver so I want something that rides as good or better than stock. (i know its a cj-5). Here are some of the kits I have been looking at, let me know if any of you guys personally use this kit or know of someone who does.
1. Black Diamond
2. Superlift
3. Skyjacker
4. Trailmaster
5. Rancho
6. Pro-Comp
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I like my Black Diamond as well. I'd probably look at Old Man Emu also. They make a 2 1/2 inch that I've heard is very functional on and off road. No experience with them just thought they should be in your list.

Skyjacker Softride - hands down. I have the two-inch and could not be happier. I've been trying to find something wrong with it for 60,000 miles and 30 something hard core trips and still perfect! The ride is also awesome!

We put a Skyjacker 2" on my bosses YJ and it's great. Rides better than stock, and really flexes well. He also put the Skyjacker "Nitro" shocks on. We thought they would be a little harsh, but they ride very nice. It is a daily driver (mostly by his wife) and there are no complaints. This is the lift that I'll be putting on my CJ-7.
