Price: $500.00
Pros: Easy install, great lift and feel.
Cons: none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: yea, I got this a while back, been riding it for about 6 months, and its great!
At the beginning it was rough, but now that it has settled it feels much better.
Its still a Jeep , and you can feel every crack on the road. I also got the adj. track bar for the rear and the 1" MM to skip the t-case drop. Overall for the price, its the best deal out there!!

Pros: good price ,easy install.
Cons: I haven't noticed any cons.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I chose this lift based on all of the comments from JF. Completely satisfied and would recommend this kit to anyone.

I had to use the TC drop kit due to vibes which was an easy fix.

I recently purchase a 99 TJ and plan to use this same kit for it.

Price: $375.00
Pros: Affordable - Fairly easy to install
Cons: Front Trac Bar relocation (per instructions) just shifted the offset of (1 inch) to the passenger side. Need to buy an adjustable Trac bar.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I went with this lift because of price and ability to increase tire size. I was a bit disappointed with the front trac bar situation and got many different suggestions on the forums. Some people relocated the trac bar per instructions and had no problem and some didn't have to relocate at all. I relocated per instructions and now the front end is shifted about an inch to the passenger side. Plan to buy and adjustable front trac bar to solve problem. Otherwise, kit is complete, easy to install with minor drilling. Me and a friend (ex-mechanic) installed in about 6 hours. The ride is really nice compared to stock (and 2 inch spacer pucks). I've had no issues now after about 4 months with several off road trips.

Price: $333.00
Pros: Price is right! Great Service... Jeep rides better than stock... Jeepforum discount!
Cons: Installation manual could have been better...
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I installed this lift with my wife. This was a first for me, and I was able to get it done. Some challenges with compressing the springs... wound up using both a spring compressor and a strut compressor. Make sure you get do an alignment after the lift.

I am running this lift along with the 1.25 BL and 1" MML. No vibes and no transfer case drop!

I'm running BF Goodrich All Terrain T/As 35x12.5x15 - on Soft 8s 15x8. Tires fit fine. This is my daily driver, and my off roading is VERY mild.

Pros: Inexpensive
Cons: No adjustable track bar.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great lift for the price. Easy installation, and allowed me to clear 33" tires with ease. I would have liked it to come with an adjustable track bar though. I had no problems with sagging springs, or leaking shocks to date. At this point I have been running kit for over a year and done both light and moderate wheeling.

Price: $369.00
Pros: Rides closer to stock than you would think. Good price. Looks good. Installed fairly easy.
Cons: Install instructions were a bit inacurate. Springs are super heavy.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: High quality parts. Make sure you purchase the adjustable track bar for the front. Prevents having to drill new holes. My right rear upper shock mount bolts (13mm) snapped when taking out the old shocks which made the install tougher, but that has nothing to do with the rough country kit. All in all, I like the kit. This is my first so I can't really compare it.

Comments: Great product from R.C., and the 2.2 shocks are a huge and needed upgrade over the hydro 8000's or nitro 9000's!

Price: $360.00
Pros: affordable; easy to install; very nice ride; provides advertised clearance (and maybe even a bit more); and as a bonus (on my Jeep at least), did not require the transfer case drop that came with the kit
Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have almost no mechanical knowledge, and yet I was comfortable enough to install the kit with an immense amount of help from my uncle and a friend. I couldn't have done it myself the first time, but I feel like I could definitely install this kit on my own now that I've had some help.

The kit provides exactly the clearance it advertised, and I can't tell a difference between how the Jeep rides now and how it did when it was stock.

The Jeep looks good with the 31" tires it had on it, and I can't wait to see how the 33" tires will look when they go on tomorrow.

The kit comes with a transfer case drop, but I did not install it until I drove the Jeep to see if it had any vibes as a result of the lift. It did not, so I did not install the drop. So far, so good.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this product. I hope I feel the same way when it gets some on- and off-road miles on it.
