Both of those are going to be fantastic lifts. What size tire are you planning on running? And what type of wheeling are you looking at? Rock crawling, mud bogging, mild trails, extreme mall-crawling, etc.?

Your end-product will help point you in the right direction for lifts. With a 3.5-4" lift, you're going to be able to pack some massive tires under there.

Can't go wrong with either one of those options. Both fantastic products from great companies.

Tell us some more about what you're going to do with your JK and we can all help you make an educated decision on what to buy for your needs.

A 2.5" lift would give you enough clearance to do just about anything you would like with the 35's. Both companies have AMAZING kits! Each offer just about everything you could need.

Yeah dude, 4" lift is too much for 35s. You will be fine with the 2.5-3" lifts for 35s as others have said.

If you plan to run flat fenders now or in the future, 4" lift would just look re-donk-u-lous with 35s. I did the 3" lift and want to do flat fenders and think I am going to have to drop 37s under the Jeep to make it look right. I like the LCOG look though so you may be cool w/ 35s and flatties.

Go with the 4", you know that you want 37's under it at some point

I LOVE my RK gear but have heard nothing but good things about Synergy. You did your home work and came up with an outstanding short list.

08 2Door Red Rubicon. Rock Krawler 5.5 Longarm Coilover, Polly rear Coilovers. AEV hood & wheels, 37"KM2s, JE Reel 1350 shafts, 5.38 Yukon gears, Superior axles, Shrockworks stubby, Fab Fours rear, sPod, Rebel Offroad brakes, Warn winch and lots more.
