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.
