I only have the 2" RC lift, but as far as I know, your only two options for 4" lifts are Superlift and BDS. El Cid has written a pretty extensive comparison between the two:

In a recent post you stated that your going to be getting rid of the Commander for another vehicle next year. Why would you want to buy a 4 inch lift if your not keeping it?

BTW: squidz had a BDS, not Superlift.

I just recently(~3 months or so) had a 4" Superlift installed on my commander. I think its great and it performed off road amazingly. It drives almost as smooth as stock on the freeways and there has been no swaying at all up at freeway speeds. I cannot speak to the other lifts available, but it doesn't seem like you can go wrong with a Superlift.

My commander is still in progress and not quite as tricked out as some of the other forum members so maybe they will be able to chime in here as well.

I might be writing up a bigger comparison post between the BDS and Superlift, but the short of it, as I say in the thread linked to above, is that knowing what I know now I would recommend SL.

I have the superlift 4" kit in and I am loving it eaven at 180 km/ph(111 mph) it still sits like a dream, but I would not take a corner at that speed.... and I only did it once to test the setup, so don't go screaming at me.

My normal traveling speed on freeway is about 120 km/ph(75 mph) anything over that with the 33" and the fuel neddle dropps like a rock...lol But it realy goes well on the freeway and off road it's the bees knees, you have to see it to believe it... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke-G37ATGL8 .

To clarrify, I will need to get rid of my rig next year because of miledge and work reasons and was planning on a 4dr Wrangler, mostly because you can actually get aftermarket parts for them. But I love my Commander it it fits all my kids and camping gear so I am now thinking of selling it to my wife....hence the lift question
