Price: $329.99
Pros: Been on 4 weeks as of 04/03/14, raised vehicle almost 4 inches. 2.2 shocks feel better than factory shocks
Cons: 3 hour manufacturer suggested instal time was easily 8 hours. had to remove trackbar to install springs.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 8 hour install with mechanic helping. Finished job gave me almost 4 inches of lift, instead of advertised 2.5 inches. Kit does not come with transfer case drop kit as it used to. the almost 4 inches lift is giving me a little vibration coming off the clutch in 2nd gear. Rough Country said to wait 3 weeks for lift to settle...4 weeks now and no settle..not unhappy with this at all!
Rides great, a level on the rocker panels shows vehicle is perfectly level when on flat surface. Lift is almost too high for factory swaybar disconnects.
All In all, I'm very happy with the lift.

Comments: So far so good. Although rough country has gotten some bad reviews , this kit seems to be O.K. I guess only time will tell. But for my "street queen" I think it'll do fine.

Pros: Decent price. Fast shipping, great customer service.
Cons: The shocks suck. The leaf springs are too short and cause a bad shackle angle.
Recommended? No

Comments: So, typical high school budget when I was lifting my Jeep. Bought Rough Country. Install was fine, instructions were good and leaf springs are easy anyways. After a couple months I got axle wrap on my SPRING UNDER YJ. It was awful. The passenger side sits at least i inch and a half lower. Stay away.

Pros: Easy installation, great price, rides well
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've had this lift on for almost 2 years now, love it. No sagging or anything. My only complaint is of course it rides rougher than the stock suspension but I think it's getting rougher with age.

Pros: lifted the jeep even. ride quality is much better than expected.
Cons: springs are a little too soft(not bad though)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: this kit does exactly what it is meant for. the springs are a little soft, i have an after market rear bumper and roof rack so the back sits a little lower but not bad(now i can justify buying a front bumper).

Price: $300.00
Pros: Best quality in its price range!
Cons: Nothing yet, this is my third RC kit and have never had a problem with any of them. My kit did not come with new mounting hardware for shocks (had to use the stock bolts) but that's all! Overall great product
Recommended? Yes

Comments: installed my RC 2.5" lift into my 2000 tj and I love it so far. I went with just the N2.0 shocks instead of the 2.2s cause I've heard they're a little softer on road and from what I've noticed that's probly right

The ride is smoother than stock and gave me a good amount of lift. I only had to take the sway bar links off to get the springs in place (using coil compressors) took about 5 hours total.

Looking forward to getting my 32"s on there!

Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Rough country 2.5" suspension coils (front and rear) with four 2.2 series shocks. Look great. Do the job you want them to do very well. Install time was approx. 5-7 hours. Definitely a good choice for those Jeepers on a budget, like me.
