If you're willing to spend the money, I'd get the RE over the RC, but I'd suggest you also look into BDS.

i agree, if money is the issue then go with rc or bds. they are both great setups. IMHOP i think that re is a little to expensive.

x2, most can agree that RE is great and of higher quality...but for double the money... is it double the quality? will it last twice as long and ride twice as good?

i have the re standard 4" and it is really no big deal..the 4.5 extreme is a MUCH better kit..also look at bds. i have a 4.0L and a winch and the front springs SAGGED bad..i called re and they basicly told me to pound sand..the small parts box's said re on them, but the plastic part pouch inside them all said pro-comp. and the 4" springs are not domestic, mine were from india..save the $300. or go bds, i hear they have a great kit and customer policy.

Yes, they have a no questions LIFETIME warranty. I didn't buy a "kit", I just bought the springs I needed. Four 2" lift springs to the door for well under $400 aint bad. I bought everything else seperate.

I have had a Rough County 4in kit for 10 months now. It has seen some nasty trails and the springs have always jumped back into shape. $400 is a great investment in my opinion.

seems like the Rough County is more alone the style points and not the off roadding?
