The Rock Krawler 3.5 Inch X Factor System for the Jeep Grand Cherokee WK has been engineered to improve your WK's off-road ability while maintaining excellent street manors, providing simple installation and a lifetime of durability. Rock Krawler replaces the factory cast strut forks with new high quality precision welded laser cut steel units that are made from 1/4" thick material. This maintains the factory travel range and ride quality from the OEM front strut. In the rear, simple poly spring spacers are installed on top of the factory coil springs. By using this lift method you are assured a factory like ride that will remain sag free for life. The system is a complete bolt in product that is completely reversable. This is the best 3.5 Inch system on the market for Grand Cherokee WK's and is backed by our lifetime guarentee.

Pros: Very solid
Cons: Heavy, had to give up transmission skid
Recommended? Yes

Comments: So far I am very happy with this purchase. I have only had for a few months and only have had couple outings. Articulation is good. At full droop the rear springs can fall out. To resolve this I replaced them with dual rate springs. Now the limiting factor is the length of shock I can fit in the stock position. I should also mention that we had to add shock relocation brackets in the rear to prevent contact on the axel housing.

Price: $3,499.00
Pros: light weight, quiet, great movement
Cons: none so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I upgraded to a more adult lift kit and was talked into this one. A little skeptical at first but glad I chose this one. Price was a little more than I wanted to pay but all in all its well worth it. I also upgraded my shocks to the RRD remote res shocks so that definately has something to do with how great this kit is. Feel like I have way more than 3.5 inches of lift. Almost no body roll compared to my other kit. Super easy to care for with some WD40 and 3 in 1 grease. Lots of movement on the trails if you are looking for articulation. Plus a super warrenty on all parts. RK definately takes pride in their products and it shows. I didnt install it myself as that would not be wise on my part. 4WPs installed and did have some issues installing but also said this was their first RK kit so that may have had something to do with it. They said the directions that came with it were not as user friendly so good thing I let them do it. All in all this is the best decision I have made for my JK.

Price: $2,500.00
Pros: Easy install for someone that knows how to weld and who knows something about suspension theory.
Cons: No con's.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If your looking to get the most flex out of a suspension.. Go with Rock Krawlers 3link front/rear Long arm kit. By far one of the best performing suspensions out there. I'm currently using their Pro Alum. System. 1/3 the weight of Solid steel.

I have their Aluminum Bodied 14" coil overs on this 3.5" lift. I raised the upper mount up 2" so I could keep my ride height the same.

I'm fully happy with this set up.

If you drive more on the pavement, like a daily driver. Then I would suggest using their 4 link in the front. This will give you more stability for higher speeds of driving.

Price: $300.00
Pros: nice easy way to lift it as long as your front struts and springs havent sagged to bad.
Cons: you must get longer rear shocks. factory shocks wont last long because they will be fully extended. would be nice if longer front bump stops came with the kit.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: overall its been doing pretty good. made a nice increase in height was able to fit some 245/75/16's with out a problem. only thing im not a fan of is the rear spacers. i plan on ditchen the rear spacers soon for simply longer springs. but overall install was easy kits holding up so far

Price: $379.00
Pros: Easy install, solid construction. Fast shipping and great company.
Cons: Non so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I am very happy with this lift. It was pocket friendly and you can notice the difference. It is easy to install in a few hours. It does go kind of high where if you get some bigger tires you may have problems getting it aligned but they make it work. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lift and does not want to drop two grand.
