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.

Pros: Looke great!
Cons: tought o install on your own... get some frineds!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Kit looks great. Would have been easier to install if I could have waited for help (just couldn't wait with that shiny new lift kit sitting in the garage). Used a combo of spring compressors and BFH (plastic) for spring install. Used spacer in front not in back. Winch coming later this week.

Comments: The instructions were pretty detailed. Pictures were clear also. Didn't really have any problems with it other than stuck bolts and not compressing the springs enough to get them in their pockets.

Comments: THe RC 3.25" lift was made very well. The instructions were written well. If you are going to install this lift, make sure you get some strut spring compressors. I couldn't have done it without them.

Pros: Love the way it looks. Relatively easy to put on by yourself. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A SPRING COMPRESSOR!
Cons: Really stiff ride, but that's expected from a TJ
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love the way it looks. Plus, it was silver, which is the color of my Jeep. The ride is a little stiffer than the stock suspension.

Pros: Great Product. See review
Cons: None Yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Awsome Lift. I installed it Sept 1, 2009 and could not be happier. The bottom of my front bumper is exactly 22" which is the legal street limit here in Delaware. There is an unkept railroad crossing near my home and it would nearly snap my neck if I crossed it at more than 30MPH. When I crossed it today I could hardly believe how the progressive springs and 2.2 shocks handled the crossing. I actually made a circle and blew over it at 50MPH just for kicks. Great job guys. This lift is a fantastic combo......Marko

Price: $369.00
Pros: Easy to install - Smooth ride overall - Don't let the name mislead you.
Cons: Printed black and white directions w/ pictures really made time challenging. Front TRACK BAR relocation concept!!! Spend the money, and get an adjustable. I didn't care for the directions of drilling a new hole .75" over. This didn't correct anything.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Overall the lift went in w/o any complications. The lift its self didn't provide any grief, but my jeep was another story. The springs fit perfectly in the perch(s) w/ a spring compressor, and the spacers slipped on w/ a small spray of silicone lube. Shocks do a great job of dampening the ride, and the 2.2 stabilizer makes the straight line a true straight line. The rear trackbar relocation went in w/o any complication either. I installed quick discos, but dont really care for them. The set that came w/ the kit are "dog legged", and they lined up w/ the axle and the sway bar much cleaner.
Once I installed an adjustable BDS from track bar, my quick discos lined up better (not perfect).
Overall - I am happy w/ the lift, and for the money it works as expected.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Easy Install Nice Ride
Cons: Track Bar Instructions for Rubicon seem to be off a bit, still working on that one.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just completed an install of my RC 3.25" kit.

Jeffery was great to deal with and the kit shipped quickly and was complete except for one sway bar link, which was shipped as soon as I called them.

The kit was easy to install and the instructions were very straight forward and easy to follow. The only complications I had were due to rust. One shock tower bolt would not come off and had to cut it. A rear shock mount bolt broke off and I had to drill and tap it. This was after several days of PB Blaster in preparation. My jeeps have been more rusty than most due to the harsh northern Michigan winters and salt. I would definitely advise everyone to spray on some sort of rust treatment in advance for any work under a Jeep.

I have a 2004 Rubicon. It really only lifted my Jeep about 2.5", which is fine with me. It took out the sag I had in the front due to my winch and leveled everything up. I think my lift may not have been a full 3.25" because the Rubicon's springs are stiffer than regular TJ's. Although there is some debate on that point. I think the ride is noticeable better than stock, very happy with that. I have not noticed any vibs or wobbles.

My only complaint is that it seems that my front axle is off center about 1/2". The passenger side sticks out about 3/4" and the driver side is in about 1/4". I am certain that I drilled the 3/4" track bar offset correctly. The original hole and the new hole don't leave any room for a third hole between them to correct the problem. Has anyone else had this problem? FOLLOW UP - I ended up getting an adjustable track bar to fix the issue.

One other problem I learned about. I am 99% sure the rear shocks they sold with my kit were too long. They kept bottoming out will little compression. I trashed a few lower shock mounts. They would not admit it. It was a few years after my purchase so I just bought new shorter shocks rather than argue with them and added real bump stops.
