Rough Country??? Any good??

Hey guys, I decided not to use add-a-leafs, so, instead, I was going to get a Rough Country suspension lift kit. Has anyone used this lift? I have read about it on the forums, but, never actually seen it, read about it, or anything. Rumor has it these lifts run $389.00 and are great! If I do decide to go with the Rough Country lift, will 32's fit under there fine?

Thanks guys,
Mike

I never seen anyone use them (and i've been wheeling for about 7 yrs and been to many states). National Tire and Wheel has a complete 4" lift (with shocks) for $459. There are other brands out there that have a good reputation that cost a little more (but worth it for the reliability (Rubicon express, Skyjacker, and Superlift). There's probably a reason no one is using them, but I've never heard why.

P.S. 32's should fit fine with any 3 1/2" to 4" lift kit.

31's fit fine, I'm getting ready for 33's. The Rc is a little bouncy at first, but it's not too bad once you break it in.

I am currently running a 3" RC with 33's they fit fine. The only problem is when you take off your disco's and trac bar you run the flares. The RC is nice and cheap but if i had to do it over I would get something bigger and better. The RC is rough. It bounces me all over the place.

Hey guys, assuming I do go with the RC 3 inch lift, do you think I could do it myself? I am somewhat mechanically inclined, but, by no means a mechanic. If I could put in 3-4 hours a day, how long should it take to install this lift??? Thanks!!!

I looked at the RC, but I went with the BDS 3.5 lift with boomerang shackles. Everyone said with that set up I should see a little over 4 inhces of lift. BDS has no questions asked lifetime warranty, and the ride is supposed to be superb.

You can find them for around 550 including shocks at most places online.
