Lift kit advice for 2015 Jeep rubicon

I know there are a lot of different reasons that people get what they get for lift kits and I would like to know which kits have a good reputation amongst the Jeepers on this site. I just bought a 2015 Rubicon Unlimited and would like to put up to a 38" tire under it at some point. Most companies only have 3" lifts except for Terraflex who offer a 6" kit but I don't know anything about them being new to the world of Jeeps.

How much lift?

Which brands are good?

I don't mind spending a few bucks the first time to do it right.

Rock Krawler, Metal Cloak, BDS and Synergy all are good. AEV and Teraflex are just over priced for mall crawling.
Flat fenders are also recommended. There is a mechanic some here have dealt with (Fearless Fabrication) that has a great reputation for doing lifts and will give you a discount rate if you do the work with his tools and supervision.

I think I have it narrowed down to a Rock Krawler or a Synergy kit. Still not sure on ride height though. I keep going back and forth about wear and tear on a 6" lift vs. a 4.5"

You could also try looking at an air bag system, serves as an on board air as well. Big money, but very plush ride.

4.5 you dont need more and some high line fenders you will be supised how much tire you can fit with little lift on thouse trucks.

I installed a AEV DualSport 4.5" kit with geometry relocation brackets on a '12 Wrangler, drives fairly nice and with some aftermarket flares, fits 38s with tons of room to spare. kit even comes with a programmer to fix tire size and KILL that blasted tire pressure monitoring system at will.

Don't use the geometry relocation bracket, it's a joke, too thin and low down. it gets mangled on rocks.

I run a synergy long arm 4.5 love the lift I've beaten the crap outta it and it still holding up strong. Running 37's right now moving up to 42's after I put the 14 bolt and front 60 in it. Stay with the 4.5 lift. You don't need a 6 inch lift if you wanna see it just send me a pm
