In school and posting on JF. You should be trying to get you a seat cover to go ride around in the Jeep instead of daydreaming about a Tuff Country lift. Back to your question. You don't hear much about Tuff Country on here. There kits appear to be complete and have everything you will need.

X2 with the better part. Dont do a lift kit only to have to replace it later and if your having to ask if its a good company its not a good company because we all know the usual good companies...rubicon express, BDS, EMU and the list goes on.

DD- 1995 YJ 2.5L, Cat delete, 19lb injectors, 30/9.5r15
Trail Rig- 1994 YJ 4.0L, Rubicon Express 4.5inch lift, 1inch body, D30 Aussie, 33/12.5/r15 Cooper Mud Terrains, front bumper, rocker guards

I've got the Tuff Country 3.5" lift on my YJ. It sure wouldn't have been my choice, but the previous owner did choose it so I've been wheeling it for almost a year now.

I haven't spent much time in other YJ's recently, but it seems to be pretty stiff and bouncy. It didn't have any flex when I bought it, but that could have more to do with the tires running out of room and the bolts on the stock shackles being torqued way too tight. I have since installed some Rough Country 1.25" boomerang shackles at what seems to be a very reasonable torque level, and my flex has improved considerably. I didn't notice the ride getting any better, though it probably did.

I will say that I have beat on the springs a bit with no issues. I even snapped a stock shackle in half while down in Moab and couldn't find a replacement, so I drove home (about 240 miles) with only one end of the front right spring mounted to the frame. Honestly...other than a little bit of a lean, I really didn't notice it. I'm guessing that has something to do with the stiffness of the springs, but I am very pleased with the abuse my springs have shrugged off.

If I were buying a new kit today, I'd go for the RE 4.5" Extreme Duty, and I may still upgrade to those springs or something comparable in the future, but for now my Tuff Country springs (and shocks) are doing pretty well.
