Comments: This was a nice kit to install. Looks great too. The biggest problem was the removal of the old units. I had to use a cutting torch to remove the original leaf springs.

Pros: tough, improve performance on and off road.
Cons: "rugged" on road ride.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I had the 2" OME kit on my last wrangler, and this one is much more heavy duty. Makes for a rougher ride on road, feels as though you're driving a mini dumptruck, where as the 2" gave a sportier on road ride, but was often too soft for off road use, especially when loaded. Having had both, I would choose the HD every-time, simply for it's burliness.

Price: $2,300.00
Pros: Amazing ride & handling now. Better than stock. Nitrocharger shocks do the trick and the springs evened things out for me. Can easily do 130KM per hr with no problems.
Cons: My package did not come with any instruction at all. I do it by the instructions, thats my style. However you don't need instructions to do a lift. More pricey than a rough country or other, but i'm sure will be well worth it in the long run.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I actually got the ZJ/LJ kit for my TJ. But essentially they are the same lift but mine has stiffer springs and Long travel shocks.

Pretty easy install, improved my handling and ride dramatically right away.
As things settle and I throw the hard top back on I think it will ride even better.

I got 3'' Front and 4'' in the rear, so more than a "2.5" lift. Which in any case you would get 2.0''-2.25'' after all is said and done.

Highly recommended!
