Price: $300.00
Pros: Inexpensive, Easy install, Fairly tough
Cons: Skid plate spacers are weird, you might want to invest in a SYE.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I ordered my kit from Jeffrey on the forum and as promised got 10% off. This lift is great for the price you get shocks, springs and all the mounting hardware. Not having any real experience with the suspension system of my jeep and this being my first install of a lift I was concerned it would be difficult but we were able to get it on in an afternoon. I was also quite surprised at the difference 2.5 inches makes. It looks a lot better and doesnt seem to suffer from top-heavy problems that larger lifts do. This kit does come with skid plate spacers, which i am using because I'm too cheap to go out and buy a SYE kit BUT I admit that from the side I don't like the look of the lowered skid plate. I dont know if I could have gotten away with leaving it up but I didnt risk it. Anyway if your looking for an inexpensive lift that will make your jeep look great AND give you that extra clearance offroad, go with this. If your a hardcore rock crawler put out the cash for something extra amazing.

Price: $500.00
Pros: great, flexy, durable lft. Provides a stable ride.
Cons: Somewhat rough on the road with speed bumps, pot holes, etc. Did not include t-case drop, which is needed badly.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is an excellent lift kit for any Jeep that spends most of its time on the road, and ventures out onto the trail on weekends. It is affordable, durable, and provides articulation. I would not recomend it for serious wheeling, but for DD Jeeps that hit up the off road parks often, its a great buy.

Price: $300.00
Pros: Cheap price for decent height lift
Cons: Was not just a bolt on lift kit as RC stated in description.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I actually bought the RC 3.75 combo lift; $300 for the 2.5 Springs and 2.2 Shocks also an additional $90 for the 1.25 Body lift, Which I felt altogether was a great value. The Springs were a pain to install (you have to have spring clamps). Once you get the BL on yo also have to cut and relocate the Fan Shroud. But over all I was happy with the end result and I look forward to see how it all holds up.

Price: $400.00
Pros: Everything you'd expect from a budget lift kit.
Cons: shocks are too stiff.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Even though the shocks are too stiff for my liking, overall, the kit is a great value. Easily done at home by two people. For my TJ we did have to get a rear trackbar relocation bracket and re-drill a hole for the front one. I would suggest getting a adjustable one for the front. A pickle-fork was the only thing that would separate the front trackbar from the frame mount (just something to keep in mind). Definitely recommended.

Pros: Easy installation, good value for starter lift, great customer service
Cons: None so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've been pleased despite some criticism from others. RC products have served me very well thus far and their customer service is very responsive and easy to deal with. The ride comfort is as good as to be expected from an off-road designed lift. The 2.2 shocks are not too soft and not too stiff even for my DD/weekend warrior. Springs are not too bouncy and have not settled too far after 6 months. I don't have any heavy bumper accessories yet so we will see how they handle that when the time comes.
