Comments: My Jeep is a daily driver so a 2' lift was about my limit. I like the higher ground clearance it gives and the nice look too.

Price: $100.00
Pros: gives 2 inches of lift in front and 1 1/4 in back
Cons: only 1 1/4 in back
Recommended? No

Comments: Just like any BB its just a spacer, I would have rather gone the junkyard lift route now that I'm aware of it, at least it would have given me more lift for less $$$.

Price: $153.00
Pros: Inexpensive, Quality product, No issues
Cons: Nothing, does exactly what it's supposed to do. Instructions kind of lack detail.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Rough Country's 2 Inch lift kit is one of the best "bang for your buck" items for any XK or WK. The parts included are all metal and powder coated, not poly which tends to fail over time, and comes with grade 8 hardware. The install was pretty easy and straight forward, some suggest a spring compressor, I rented one but never used it. It was easier for me to disassemble the suspension components further than the instructions explain.

Definitely worth the 4 hour install time!

Pros: Very inexpensive and the Nitro shocks are awesome. Also, great customer service.
Cons: Shocks could be smoother, but its nothing to noticeable.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: As I said, its a very basic kit, and nothing too special. I wouldn't get it with the hydro shocks though. Shell out the extra $30 or w/e to get nitros.

Price: $189.50
Pros: Easy Install, Clears 30" Tires
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The only problem I had was that the washers provided for the front shocks tore through the bushings and caused a ridiculous rackett. If I could do it again, use the factory washers, so you don't have to go out and buy new bushings.

Price: $250.00
Pros: 2 inches quick and easy
Cons: hate the shocks, they bottom out when hitting bumps on the trail, just go for four!
Recommended? No

Comments: I installed it quickly by myself but in a well equiped shop in 3 hrs. Shocks included dont quite fit right but that may be because I have stock springs that have been well used and maybe a little worn out. The shock body hits the upper shock mount when on the trail and the ft sway is disco'd. Price wise just spend the extra 250 for the 4 in from rough country and get real springs and always, always upgrade the shocks! These shocks also have a bad bone jarring reaction everytime i hit a hole or bump in the road wish I'd have gone with ajustable ones. 2" runs 245/75r16s just fine no trimming.

Price: $90.00
Pros: gives enough clearance for bigger tires
Cons: puts more stress on the already weak leaf springs
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i got the coil spacers along with the adjustable shackles. it wasnt really hard to install. the hardest part was removing the shackle bolts. i had to use a torch on one. about a 4hr job all together. shortly after i put on 30x9.5 tires. the difference is huge. it looks so much better than stock. and for what i use it for its great. im really happy with the way it turned out.
