1993 YJ 4" Lift Help!

Hey guys I want to get a 4" lift for my YJ but don't know which one to get. It seems that they range in price from around $500 to over $1000. What is the differance between these other than the price? Let me know what you have and why it works best for your application.

I have the RC 4" lift. If you talk to Ryan (the rough country rep here on JF) he'll give you a 10% discount.

It's by far the cheapest way to lift it 4". It rides rough, but flexes well and does well off road.

The more expensive kits will give you a better ride though.

RC for me. Mine is 4" and rides fine on road, and off. Price is right. Talk to Ryan as mentioned. Lifetime warranty. Sags? Replaced. Easy to install. It's a jeep, and it feels like one.

Wow, I've never seen this many people in a row mention RC without bashing them.

i have heard from many people that old man emu is by far the best riding lift you can get. Personaly i wouldent waste my money on a spring under lift kit. Go with a spring over! you can keep your stock springs so you will get a softer ride and alot better flex! Also if you can weld or have a buddy that can it would be cheaper then any spring lift you can buy.

I have rough country on my xj,zj,and yj and have no problems at all with either one.
I'm actually going to be building another yj and plan on using the 6 inch rough country kit.
I'd go with rough country.

Here's another vote for Rough Country. I've had mine a year and there is no sag. After hearing all the trash talk on then I counted on sag. It had better sag before next winter or I won't be able to get it in the garage with a hard top.
