I dont have the 3" kit but I do have the 4.5" kit and it is ok but it isn't as complete as I would have liked, my suggestion is save your pennies and in time get a Rubicon Express, it comes with things that isn't of major importance but are def. good to have such as end links (or discos) and brakelines instead of the crappy extension bracket.

ive had my 3" rough country lift for about 3 years now and it has had zero problems. the ride is harsher than stock but for the price it has performed great and i have no complaints. My lift is the aal and it has sagged a little in the rear but is still level and looks great. if i do another i will get an re but at the time it was a great deal and if in the same situation id do it again

i have the 4.5 as well and i've had no problems. i spent a tid bit more on brake lines and disco's, the disco's aren't real great but they do the job, a lot better than running no front swaybar or having to disconnect the regular links every time. it does ride a bit rough but i don't mind it at all....like others have said, when i do a new lift i'll go with something a bit higher ended, but for the time being the RC lift has served me well
