Price: $800.00
Pros: Great suspension system for the price
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got the 2.5" suspension lift with the dual performance steering stabilizers and rear trackbar bracket installed for $800 plus tax. The 2.2 series shocks are really heavy duty units. Rides great. Got about 2.75" lift in the front and 1.75" in the rear. Sits more level now than before. All around great system from those that really only want to go with 33" tires.

Price: $299.95
Pros: Quality construction, decent ride, good fit n' finish
Cons: Shipped with longer rear shocks, which may be an issue at some point
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very pleased overall with the lift kit for the price. Shipped fast and arrived as described. I may eventually change out the rear shocks for shorter Rancho 5000's with roughly the same travel to prevent from bottoming out the RC shocks.

Price: $330.00
Pros: Cheap
Cons: Handles like a Model T, Causes Death Wobble
Recommended? No

Comments: This lift was nice for about 3000 cuz i though it was still in the breaking in stage. 6000 miles later it still handles like a model t with no suspension and i do believe it is the cause for my death wobble. I will be taking it off soon and replacing it with a 3.5 rubicon express lift kit

Pros: Great product and a very inclusive kit. Great Lift for the budget minded person.
Cons: None as of yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is the first step in the goal of 4 in. and 33 in. tires. So far this lift kit has exceeded my expectations. Instillation was easy (with the right spring compressors), and the ride is not terrible.

Pros: Good price, looks good, easy install, durable
Cons: ride is a bit harsher than stock
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got the Rough Country 2 1/2" Spring / 2.2 Shocks. I wanted the EMU kit but the price was beyond my budget and the price on this kit was too good to pass up. I can't imagine i would have been much happier with the EMU kit to justify the price difference. This kit looks good, rides well, was strong on the trail and installed easily.

Pros: great look, good ride, no problems with installation
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: For the price I payed, it was definitely worth it. The shocks are quite beefy, and the springs make a good ride. It rides stiffer than stock, but it's not unbearable

Price: $354.00
Pros: Ease of install, simple directions.
Cons: Nervous about rear shock room to bump stop.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I had a few friends who were able to help who had previous experience with installing lifts. ONly a few rusted bolts delayed anything. Rear Trac Bar relocater went on easily. Only took 5 hours and a sawzal to solve one rusted on shock bolt. Have yet to take it off road, can't wait though!

Pros: Great lift for the $$$ - fantastic customer service from Rough Country
Cons: you get what you pay for!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It is a very simple lift and fairly easy to install. There have been some issues with the shock length. Some of the parts have not been machined as well as they could have been but overall a excellent choice for what you pay. Comparable kits usually cost 2-3 times as much. also, Rough Country customer service has been fantastic at addressing issues and making sure their customers are satisfied!

Price: $275.00
Pros: Perfect kit for the average lift with excellent cost to value ratio
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The product performs just as it's described by other forum members, great. The value of the suspension lift as it relates to the cost is excellent. It was easy to install and the directions were accurate. I highly recommend this product because of it's quality and because of RC's service.

Pros: Cheap, rides amazing, Great kit
Cons: Warehouse sucks, they mess up shipments and equipment all the time
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great lift for the price and I have told everyone I know about the kit. However, you must be patient with the company as they WILL mess up your order and it WILL take a few weeks to get all your correct parts.

Pros: Price
Cons: Little stiffer ride
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Price was the deciding factor, installation was straight forward, I installed mine with all hand tools. The ride is a little stiffer than factory, but expected. Right after installation the additional hieght was 3.5" rear, 3" front. More to follow.

Rough Country 2.5" Progressive Spring Lift Kit
Price: $357.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: What else can I say about this kit other than a terrific product for a terrific price. Easy to install, easy to follow instructions, I also purchased the rear trac bar relocation bracket and steering stabiliser. Ride was a little stiff until everything settled in but now feels better than stock ride, overall a much smoother ride. 2.2 shocks are stiffer than stock but built like a tank and will never go back to anything other than those. I am running 33's with this kit and for general offroading with the extended flare it is a great combo. If I werte to run rockier trails I would definitely put the 1.25BL. The T-Case lowering kit was not neded as the vibes I feel are mainly from the tires. A good crow bar, jack stands, 3 ton floor jack and a set of air tools is all I needed and I installed it myself so I did it in about 7 hours. Jeffery is a great person to deal with at RC and will buy future products as needed. price indicated includes shipping.
