Thats what I'm trying to get across. Don't buy a kit. You don't need a $1300 kit. You can buy 4 BDS or OME springs at $100/each. Buy the other stuff you need and you can have a top shelf suspension for $600. tops. With a part time job in Lima, you could have that extra $200 in a week. I understand what a college budget is. I was there. But it doesn't make sense to spend $400 on a kit now, knowing you have plans to replace it with better stuff later. When you could go straight to the better stuff for an extra $200. Even if it takes a month to get the extra money, you will be way ahead in the long run. The thing with RC lifts for the YJ, is that they have nothing to offer over any of the other brands except price. Thats it. Its cheap. Its not that RC fits an intended purpose or the specs are perfect for this build, or they make some special parts. They are at a price point that no one else can match while still offering a reliable product. Thats why they exist.

I'm just trying to prevent you from making the same costly mistakes that I did. Hind sight is 20/20, and if I knew then what I know now, I would have been better off.

I think people who have exactly zero experience with them bash them because they see others and want to be cool.

Not saying their great but they are inexpensive and get the job done.

From my readings, the people that bash the rough country lifts on here are people that have had them and had really bad experiences. RC better have good customer service....someone needs to deal with all their product issues. And to be clear my only experience with them is the hundreds of people on JF that have first hand issues with them.

Getting defensive and going on the attack just because you have the product does not change peoples minds....you need thicker skin. If you want to help RC change peoples minds... simply say good things about it when the opportunity arises.

Lots of people get away with a 4" lift with a tcase drop and don't have vibrations and don't do the SYE. Other people get some vibration and must do the SYE to cure it.

I had about 5.5" of lift and was still ok and vibration free. I did the SYE and driveshaft because I wanted a stronger drive shaft and wanted to keep the fluid in the tcase if there was a break.
