Is the Rough Country lift ok for the $$$$

ok I know there are threads on this but with RE being purchased for now I need new input. I want to lift my jeep enough to clear 32's or 33's, and I don't mind trimming the fenders. My question is this, is RC an ok product? I went to my local shop to see what kind of time frame it would take to lift my jeep and he was pushing RE on me, but I said to him RE is too much $$$ for me and I they just got bought buy 4wheel parts and not sure if the full product line is available.

The reason for the RC lift is b/c of the SYE situation. That in itself is more than the lift. AND I mentioned doing a Hack N Tap and they looked at me like I had 3 heads....

RC is great, and you can't beat the customer service.

my HD sye was around $190 shipped from P.O.R.C. ...

RC has good products. their shocks suck taint though.. even the new "performance" 2.2's... straight garbage IMO. replace with bilsteins

I agree with above the lift is fine, but the shocks will be crappy. I would do the HD SYE and use a front driveshaft from an auto XJ. This can be done for less than 300.00. I would go with RC over RE if the RC kit cost more myself. Just buy the kit with the free shocks and then replace them with a quality set from OME or bilstein and you will be happy.

When you order, call and ask for Jeffrey. He gives us good deals! Even hooked me up on a leveling kit for my brother-in-law's new Silverado.
My build thread has pics again.
