I got a pretty quick response from Erin at rockridge4wd for one of my quotes.

They're on the vendor page.

I may add Trailmaster into the mix aswell they are in the $450-550 range So they are considered to be Budget I know they are owned by TAP ( trans american parts same company owns S/B, Procomp, G2, RE .... )

Noone has one of their kits maybe I look into it

When I was looking I thought the zone springs were around $70-75 a corner. are you getting the whole kit or piecing it together?

That is kit price May piece it to save money since I only need springs, bushings, shocks, dpa, u bolts. I'm doing a 1" mml in place of tcase drop

Those mil wrapped springs look pretty nice, and the complete kit w/ shackles, shocks, brake lines, etc is a nice price. My only issue is (and not speaking from experience, just from pics I've seen posted) that the RC springs seem to be too short. Most rigs I've seen with them almost seem to have a slightly shorter than stock wheelbase, and the shackle angle is never better than vertical. If they just made them a little longer they would flex, and probably ride, better.

Interested to see what you go with and how it turns out. My wife really wants to run 35s on her YJ eventually.

Due to Zones shipping rates through Zone and Other vendors and local venues the Zone is going to be out of the question It'll be in the $750 range
Super Lift is on a Backorder I've delt with them working at 4WP so Who knows how long that will take they build in batches

So it looks like I'll be a Guinea pig for the new Military Wrapped RC lift !

I was pretty sure you were going with RC anyway... I am sure the other reviews on it were unbiased as well but this will be interesting. Keeping in mind that every Jeepers Jeep is different and from the sound of it, every spring that comes out of RC is as well, I went with BDS for piece of mind... I will follow to see what the bottom line is for you. How soon do you plan on getting them?

Looking forward to seeing how this works out. My RC 4" is as rough as it gets. I was going to do new corners pretty soon.

I have Decided I'll be a Guinea pig for the new 4.5" Military Wrapped RC kit for this forum, I can get it for $519 shipped to my door with it being the only kit with military wrapped springs and a life time warranty in the price range I want to be in it'll the one I choose . I should be ordering it in a couple of days so I'll start spraying the Jeep down with PB Blaster now ! Once the lift is installed I'll be picking up a set of axles with 4.10 gears to replace my axles with 3.07's and running the 33x 10.50's KM2's off my XJ (its getting duratracs)

I ran trailmaster 3" springs over 10 years ago and they rode ok for the money with no sagging. I did eventually manage to break the main leaf leading to picking up a set of used RE springs. At the time they were atleast 1" taller than my buddy's RC 4" lift.

Ok guys. The lift arrived today, I'll probably start the install this weekend or next I need to get a few days off work just incase I run into 25 year old fastener issues.
