I've had the Teraflex 2.5" Coil/Shock w/ Nitto Trail Grapplers. its the combination that will make the ride. going on about 1500 miles right now and lovin both. The aggressive Nittos are as quiet as stock, but look great and can handle the terrain. Wouldn't change any of this..

I also have the Rough Country 2.5" BB lift. IMO it rides the same as factory before the lift. I hear that if you go with springs it does stiffen up the ride quality.
Easy to install, Rides great. If you do go with a BB make sure you get longer rear sway bar links and move the rears to the front. That is if the kit doesn't come with them.

From what I have read, the closest that you stay to stock the better in terms of ride quality. That is of course if you like the stock ride. My plan is to use a 2" budget boost from Rubicon Express that retains most of the factory hardware (springs, shocks, etc) and a 1" body lift to clear 35" tires with Spidertrax wheel spacers. I have an 08 Rubicon with the performance suspension so there is really no need to go higher because I am not an extreme off-roader. 35's will give it the look and more off-road capability so there is really no need for me to go up in terms of lift. I have an Airraid CAI and I will be installing a Magnaflow Cat Back and 4:88 gears as well as a Superchips flash so my performance should be spot on.
There are a lot of companies out there that claim to improve the factory ride with their lifts, but you would have to sift through reviews to determine which are worth their weight in salt. I did a lot of research on lifts prior to buying the R.E. B.B. and if I had to do it without regard to budget, I would choose Full Traction or Terraflex because of their reputation and reviews.
I haven't installed my lift yet because I am awaiting a deal on tires so PM me later if you want to hear the results.
