yj lifts

I'm new to the Yj,s. I'm coming from a well built Cherokee. I have read quite a few reviews here and on another Jeep forum. One brand name seems to coming up a lot is Rough county. Thoughts? Almost all were very positive. Also I found a kit online by Zone. Anyone have anything to say about them. Being from a Cherokee my experience is Teraflex, Rustys and Rubicon Express. Thanks.

If all were positive they were paid endorsements.

Keep reading. Welcome to Yj tech.

Rough Country is cheap.

You get what you pay for.

RC=
Keep reading here. I bet for every one good review you find at least 20 bad ones. I know two YJ guys with them personally, one 4" lift has sagged to 3" and rides like sh*t and the other has sagged to a hair more than 2" and rides even worse. Save your money.

The consensus here is you have three options; BDS (quality springs with a no hassle lifetime warrenty!), Old Man Emu (only 1 option for the YJ, but amazing ride quality, tons of flex), or Rubicon Express. Anything else seems to have a cr*p load of problems.

Good luck and welcome to the fun side!

Zone is not a bad company. I ran the yj RC lift before with their "new/improved spring" it still sagged bad esp. the front springs. I had 1" lift shackles and it still barely cleared my 33s. I recently replaced them with zone's new 4" yj springs and had them on about 4 months with no sagging. They flex great and ride very smooth right after installing. I wouldn't overlook them. I almost committed to bds to replace my rc springs btw.
