Price: $70.00
Pros: It was cheap and it works.
Cons: Not as good as a full spring replacement.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The install wasn't much fun, but it wasn't the worst. Everything fit properly and the Jeep sits higher now. It's a great way to gain a little clearance for bigger tires. The Jeep does seem to ride just a little bit stiffer now, but it's not bad at all.

Price: $44.95
Pros: A home install :)
Cons: Directions are not jeep specific
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This product is very affordable and not to bad to install . and you can have a good time doing it . make sure you put a couple days a side to do it if you never have done it before . I came to realize depending on your jeep the directions might not be right .... but still is not to bad to figure out the extra steps. I am very pleased with the outcome of the lift.

Pros: Good cheap lift
Cons: Non so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the lift on amazon since it was a little cheaper there, installed it with a friend and took two days since niether of us really knew what we were doing, the thing that took the longest was extending the rear spring retaining posts. This DID NOT come with the kit, i fabbed it up with exhaust tubing.

Price: $60.00
Pros: Easy, affordable, DIY
Cons: Instructions are lacking,
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I did the 3" spacers. Also pulled a set of JK shocks. A set of BPEs and a little fab work( on shocks) and it was done. Instructions suck, but its pretty easy to figure out. I wheel it hard and hasn't let me down. Hard to beat a 3" lift for under $200 including labor. Would have been 5stars if instructions were better

Price: $299.00
Pros: Agressive look, allows for larger tires.
Cons: Rear shocks were a P.I.T.A.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a 2" SPRING lift (NO PUCKS) I got F & R springs with 8000 Series Shocks. It doesn't correct the classic ZJ "rake", but a couple more isolators will fix it.

The rear shocks were a P.I.T.A. because the shock bottoms on the 8000's were too wide. Had to do a lot of "love-tapping" to get them in.

Price: $180.00
Pros: Great cheep lift!
Cons: The shock attachments given needed to be ground down a bit to fit.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great lift! Only real con that I had was when I put it in the shock attachments given needed to be ground down a bit to fit. Not a big con. I would recommend it. It will allow for easy fit of 31x10.5 tires on a ZJ Jeep.
