ok, you want the bad and the ugly? You'll get it. I made the mistake of purchasing a Rough Country 4" lift kit as my first lift back when i first lifted the Jeep. It ended up being the worst mistake of my life and cost me an arm and a leg in the long run. Not two weeks after installing the lift I started blowing rear u-joints like once a week. After talking to some people we determined this was happening because of the weak rear springs wrapping way too much. the springs would wrap and boom i'd blow a u-joint. this of course led to the eventual failure of my transfer case and having to buy a whole new t-case.
Next issue, not three weeks after installing the kit i was on a mild trail and noticed that hey, the front leaf shouldn't look like this
completely bent for no apparent reason. When I called you guys about a warranty replacement you flat out told me that your "warranty" (don't make me laugh) does not cover damage resulting from use of your products, but you would be more than happy to sell me another spring for 85 bucks plus shipping. I stupidly said fine and paid you more money. Only to have the same spring bend again about a month later. then bent the other front spring not long after that.
My next shock at the horrid quality of your products came in the spring. A buddy had blown out his rear diff so I had him on a strap and was towing him to the trail head. we were climbing a very mild rocky hill when all of a sudden i hear a loud clang! Low and behold I get out and see two broken pieces of leaf spring. One of the middle leaves in the pack had snapped in half at the centering pin and shot out the back of the YJ. Now one side was sagging. Not 5 minutes later the same thing happened on the other side. Only this time one of the chunks of spring had stayed lodged in there and gouged a nice deep ring around the entire diameter of my $175 35" tire. So now i had to replace an expensive tire thanks to your crappy workmanship. I ordered one of your add a leaf kits to replace the broken leaves and it was ok for a while. until going down a sandy wash and gee, look at that, same damn thing. both the add a leafs snapped in half.
At this point i was completely fed up. So I called Rubicon Express and bought their 4" lift kit so I could throw every single piece of crap i had gotten from you in the trash. I almost boxed all the broken rusted pieces up and shipped them back to you but i decided i had wasted enough money on you so I just took em to the scrap yard and got a few bucks out of the scrap metal instead.
To this day I have never had a single problem with my Rubicon Express lift kit. It rides a thousand times better than your crap ever did, it has never bent or broken or caused untold amounts of damage to other parts of my rig and overall i am very happy i went with Rubicon Express. Wish I had from the start instead of wasting a lot of time and money on your garbage. I still to this day recommend that everyone steers very clear of your company and your products and will continue to do so. I will never spend another penny with your company and will try my hardest to make sure others don't waste their time and money on your garbage either.
