Price: $149.99
Pros: Great quality. Good instructions. Great results.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very pleased with my purchase. Installation was a little more difficult than anticipated, but that was due to a seized bolt on both lower control arms (D&P Side). Also added Monroe Load Levelers 58643 to the rear to gain another 1.5" and keep the raked stance.

Price: $225.00
Pros: Easy install, clear and concise instructions, quality products
Cons: Makes you want to go higher
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I needed new shocks regardless of getting a lift. I also wanted a little more altitude from possible body carnage from stumps and rocks. This kit was easy to install in a couple hours. You will definitely need coil spring compressors. Working on a lift would have been the cat's meow. Attaching the front spacers, it is very easy to strip the bolt on the sheetmetal, not the best design, but it works. The lift gives the WJ a much nicer stance. Looking forward to increasing my height.

Price: $249.00
Pros: Easy installation able to run 31s with trimming
Cons: Should have gone bigger I need to run 33s
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It's a nice kit for anyone that wants a little more ground clearance, when I bought this lift I did not know I was going to wheel any harder. I use the jeep just for hunt hunting and camping, but now really enjoy off roading, and looking at building the Wj into a expedition rig

Pros: Great turnout
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Does what it is meant to do. Installation was a b****, mainly because of rust, but id say it was worth it. Youd be surprised how far 2in of lift goes.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Ground Clearance, easy install, no need for bump stops, new track bar, etc.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great lift kit for anyone on a budget, because of the steel spacers and the stiff shocks, I actually got 2.5" inches out of a 2" lift. Great things from Rough Country.

Comments: I wanted some lift for bigger tires and didn't want to pay an arm and a leg. I looked at several "Budget boosts" and liked the feedback and price of this Rough Country lift.

Pros: Easy installation, great look, great on the wallet
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This lift is cheap, easy to install and makes the WK look way better than stock. For only a 2" lift there is a huge difference. Able to fit 265's with no rubbing.

Price: $90.00
Pros: Very easy installation
Cons: Intructions to install them were for a different lift, so i just threw them away.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It is a very good lift. sets into the spring housings and isolators easy. Easy to install and you only need simple everyday tools. It doesn't mess with alignment either. The one bad thing was that after i installed it, i got the dreaded "Death Wobble." Overall good lift for the price.

Price: $140.00
Pros: It does what it says with the same factory ride Easy installation (no strut compressor needed)
Cons: Not much lift, but not much money either
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I ordered this from a 4x4 shop, when I opened it up I couldn't believe how easy it looked to install. 4 spacers, bolts, a little elbow grease, and done. 3 hour install (with a lot of pneumatic tools and a cousin.) It may be a longer install with average home tools but still pretty simple for novice installers. Everything went on as it should and the WK was back on the road in a few hours.
