Someone told me that RC made a 2" (or there abouts) lift for the YJ, but I can't seem to find jack about such a thing. I've blown it off as incorrect information, but since this thread is here I might as well ask.

Do you offer a 2" suspension lift? (or anything lower than the 4")

That sounds promising, especially to people looking to replace a worn out suspension but not wanting to jack their rig up too much.
Mind dropping me a line on the cost?

EDIT Scratch that, I just went through the thread here and saw the price ($399) and... that's not bad at all.

I shot you an email, my springs are in fact sagging, so maybe we can work something out like you said?

Have questions

I just bought the 4" kit. I had been told that I could go with a 4" and fit 33 x 12.5 x 15 with plenty of room. I started reading the instructions and see that they say with stock wheels I should go with 33 x 10.5. Can I use my stock rims and go with the 12.50s? I'm going to start on this in about a week and would like to know before I start. Thanks.

probably arent going to want to go 12.50 on stock wheels. i think the stockers are 15x7 which is just too skinny for a 12.50. pick up a set of the black steelies for like 200 in a 15x8 or 10 and than you can run the 12.50's

i bought a kit off of ebay, and for the price i think that you cant beat it. I have had it on for probably 9 months and have noticed a little sag, but thats just them breaking in hopefully. I also would like to see for future buyers some new bolts for the springs. I had to plasma my stock springs off because a 2.5 ton impact couldnt break the old ones loose. Overall i am really happy with the kit, and havent had to use customer service yet. Thanks for upping the quality of the springs.

had to purchase a 2" body lift and called the 800 number to rough country. They beat the next cheapest price by $10. Ordered it on Wednesday about 11 a.m. and it arrived Friday! Best price and lightning fast shipping.

i bought a 1.5" rough country lift off ebay. its been on since december and i haven't really notice much of any sag. the ride is definatly a bit stiff, but its not unbearable. overall, i'm really happy with it, it almost seems like more than an inch and a half, but then again the stock spings i replaced after i "rescued" my jeep from its previous owner were totally flat and the shocks where toast.

I want to thank Ryan Chase of Rough Country. I read the threads about sagging RC springs and sent Ryan photos of my 4 inch lift sagging almost to the bump stops. I had to replace my 33/12.50's with 32X10.50's because the 33's had started rubbing the flares. Ryan had a new set of springs, bushings and u-bolts sent to me and I installed them this past week. The Jeep sets nice and high now and with only about 200 miles on the new spring set, rides, handles and flexes much better than the old set ever did. Thanks very much Ryan and RC. Your customer service is first rate and you're earned my repeat business. Now I just need my old 33's back!!

I ran 13.5 wide Toyo's on my F150 18x7 wheels with no problems. I just kept them aired down to 35 psi so they would wear flat and got 50,000 miles out of them..

I'm convinced, I will be ordering a 4" kit as soon as I get my jeep licensed.

After reading this post, I too think that my next big project will be putting a 4" lift on my jeep too... Besides, I like to go with the little guys when it come to buying thing. Most of the others are just starting to charge for their name...
