Default Which 3" Lift for my ZJ?

Well i just purchased my ZJ and im going to put about 1,000 or so miles on it before i do this but i wanted insight and forum knowledge on what is the best 3" lift for my truck. I am considering all options, dont wanna spend TOO much however trying to keep it around $300-500
I like the Rustys kits for cost effectiveness, but are they good/quality built kits? Dont know if i should do a budget boost for $200 or a full 3" for around $450?? Damn choices

well im the same way, to many choices. I am almost certain on the Rough Country 3.5 lift. It seems like a good kit and have talked to some guys at kevins Offroad and they are very nice and take the time to talk to you about your questions. I have to buy a front track bar but i would rather have the stability and no wobble in the steering,and some brake line extensions but I can make my own there. I am planning on making my purchase this coming Friday. I have mocked up the BB 2inch and to me you cant really tell there is a lift there, especially when planning to run 31 inch tires.

No one has mentioned the 3" front to rear conversion.

Basically you take the front coils, install them in the rear and replace the front with new coils. Add shocks and relocate tracbar and you have an economical 3" ZJ lift.
