So I'm all set to get the rubicon express 5.5" extreme duty lift for my cherokee.

right now I have a home brew lift which I'm pretty happy with overall but I'm thinking I'd like more room for flex and bigger tires.

Then I read somewhere that stock cherokee is 17" from hub centre to the bottom of the fender flare. I go measure mine and I come in at 20.5" (damn that sounds good! - I got 20.5") so I already have 3.5" of lift, and a pretty good ride overall and some nice flex when the swaybar is disconnected.

So, what will I gain with the 5.5" lift? 2" hardly seems worth $2500

Any comments opinions experience with the RE 5.5" lift?

from what i understand it gives you the flex and isn't as bad on the unibody.I may be wrong.
