Price: $400.00
Pros: Great for off-road use, as opposed to OEM which bottomed out oftenly. Makes the jeep look very beefy ;D
Cons: Very bumpy road-use. Steering wanders a bit after installation but i think thats normal with lifts?
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I havent used it quite enough for a quality review

Pros: Looks good, red color scheme, easy to install
Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I don't have the 2 1/2 leaf spring lift, but the 2.5" sport lift kit (coils). The coil kit is not listed in the drop-down. We installed this kit over the weekend, it was relatively easy to install, for a lift kit anyways. We did receive a mix up in parts, the kit was supposed to have 6 spacers for the tcase, and it did, but it came with 2 spacers of one kind and 4 of another. Called Rancho and they are sending out the replacement spacers that were missing. The parts look great on the jeep, lifts it like a beast, and feels great.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Bolted right up. Hardest part was getting the old stuff off. The Rancho shocks we got to match the lift are great as well.
Cons: Have yet to find any cons.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: We got our lift off another forum member who went up to a 4" lift. The lift was 2 years old when we got it, but the shocks were only 6 months old. It's been on for 1.5 years now (AUg 2010) and we've yet to have any issues. Highly recommend

Pros: Great ride, quality hardware, brand name
Cons: None yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the complete Rancho 2 1/2: lift kit that came with new shackles, springs, shocks, and all the hardware. It was put on by my local Rancho dealer. I was very happy with it at first - then I removed my trackbars - and now I'm thrilled with it. Great ride, seems to be able to do everything I've asked of it. Quality hardware too. No cheap stuff.

Comments: this is actually the 3.5 inch lift. It is okay. square lower controll arms, not the best choice. it was on the jeep when i got it.

Comments: There is too much give in the springs. They cycle so when I hit a bump it rocks back and forth. Sure, they're soft, but it doesn't make for a pleasant ride.

Comments: I am satisfied. A little stiff at first, but once you have a couple of semi-rough outings on them they start to loosen up and provide some nice flex. rough on road, i feel everything...

Comments: Great kit!! The ride is pretty good for leaf springs, and they flex well. I have had mine on my YJ for 8 years now, and it has been a good investment!

Price: $400.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good ride off road, levels the jeep out, improved the rear leaf spring sag that's common in older jeeps. Need to watch your clearance with the spring pack if you upgrade the tie-rods common with a Power Steering conversion.
