Rough Country WJ 3.5" Lift

Let me start by saying that yes I have searched and have seen what people in general think about this company and their shipping issues. That aside I am wondering about the actual performance of their 3.5" Oldman Emu spring based kit. More specifically the shocks. Price is important to me (ie cheaper is better) and they seem to have well priced shocks that sound to be better valved for the jeeps. I do not know if this is true, and that is why I am asking the guru's of the forum.

Please do not tell me that the company sucks to deal with, I am specifically interested in the performance of the kits with first hand knowledge, thanks.

I would rather wear out then rust away

do you mean Rocky Road Outfitters?

I have their 3.5" lift, and love it. im glad that i got it used for $200.00 cause the guy i bought it from said it took 2 months to get to him. the kit is nice, and it ride nice as well. its stiffer than stock, and i like that. the shocks are a good deal, but there are much better out there.

If you can get what you ordered in a timely manner then I guess some of RRO's products aren't bad, but here's a better and cheaper kit:

Sure it's 1/2" shorter but you have a full 3" spring.

I put that IRO kit on last month, and its pretty awesome. I highly recommend.
