Rough Country or Tuff Country 2.5" Lift?

1994 YJ with 31" tires

Want some lift as only have about 2" clearance to fender wells. Believe there is a 1" shackle lift with stock leafs, but not sure.

Thinking that a 2-2.5" lift would do the trick and 4" would be overkill unless I got bigger tires.

Which Brand: Rough Country or Tuff Country?

Both economical. Tuff Country comes with a TC drop, RC does not.

Seen some spring issues documented here for RC.

Need some advice for a noobie. Mostly drive 2 tracks, mud etc. Nothing too agressive.

Thanks

Rough Country has great customer service, that is all I'm going to say. I can't speak first hand about Tuff Country, but i know my 4" lift has worked out great so far, and I would highly recommend them as a company.

Ditto on RC.

x4 RC.
No spring issues anymore. And if it doesnt come with the TC drop you probably dont need one, there kits are very complete.

I wouldn't give either a consideration.

That said it eems as though plenty of the recent purchasers of RC have been happy. We'll know in a year or so if they remain happy. They seem to be very involved here so they have that going for them.

You might want to check again on the transfer case drop. I got 1.5" springs from RC and it included a transfer case drop - which I don't need.
The kit probably inlcudes it, and if not, you could probably get them to toss it in for free.

Rough Country

I know I have a different model, but I just installed a rough country 2.5" coil kit on my TJ and could not be happier. Lift installed flawless, great customer service, great ride, great price, great product. Other than being on back order for a couple of weeks, I have no complaints and will contnue doing business with them.
