I am looking for lift size and brand suggestions for my 93 XJ, my main goal with this rig since this is my first ORV build is to have a balance of road and off road manors, This is not my daily driver so I really want it to be as off road capable as it can be, im really looking more toward trails rather than a crawler. I saw the RE 3.5, RC 4.5 lift and I was also looking at the 5.5 iron rock lift kit. Any suggestions or opinions on theses kits or any others please let me know.

I dont have experience with all the different brands but I can tell you that most people say to stay away from Rough Country. Ive heard good things about Iron Rock and Rubicon Express as well as Zone and Serious. And ofcourse theres always Clayton if your pockets are deep enough.

 

So I took one option out of your list and added 3 lol so much for helping

I started my 96 XJ off with a 3" Rusty's and it's still running strong on my brother's XJ after i installed a 4.5" Clayton longarm kit. Rusty's gets a lot of flack but for not running anything hardcore it will work fine. 

We are actually going to be installing a Rusty's 3" kit into a 95 XJ next month. This is the kit he picked up. http://www.rustysoffroad.com/jeep-suspension/jeep-suspension-lift-kits/xj-cherokee-84-01-jeep-suspension-lift-kits/rustys-xj-cherokee-3-advanced-kit.html

But like Paul said it depends on depth of pockets and how you intend to use it.

Well my intended use is to make it around the trails you guys hit on the wheelin sundays and trips. And I don't mind saving up the money but I'd like to get the best bang for the buck.
