opinions on lifts

Hello all, Ive been doing my research on a lift for the WJ. Its tax time and that means I can finally lift her. Im looking to go about 4" inches. Ill do some trail riding but still need her as my DD. Long arms are best I know but due to the price and my budget these are the lifts ive narrowed it down to these:


1. Rough Country 4" X-Series at about $750

2. Zone 4" lift at about $870
That includes upgraded shocks and a steering stabilizer


1. Rough Country 4" Long Arm at about $1500

2. IRO 4" Critical Path Long Arm kit
with the upgraded shocks and extras
At about $1700

About the critical path kits theyre only front long arms. Anyone have any experience with this kit? I had a Rustys kit on the list but I only read bad reviews for Rusty and I crossed it off the list. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I had Clayton's LA on the front on my WJ with RK on the rear and 4" coils, with some minor fender trimming could fit 33s easy enough. Was also very stable at that height and rode better than stock on the highway.
