Price: $255.00
Pros: Been pretty good, beat It a good bit and stil doing good
Cons: Shocks could be better but for the price they have done the job just fine
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The lift was very straight forward to install, looks good and has performed well for the price, I'd do it again if I needed to. The shocks are a bit stiff but have lots of travel for a 3" lift shock, the AAL is pretty nice, all AALs will sag sooner or later but this one has held up really well and has only sagged a minimal amount

Price: $399.00
Pros: Gives about 3.5" of lift
Cons: Haven't found any yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just put it on about 2 months ago so I haven't had a ton of time to notice any cons with the kit but overall good lift kit. Gave me about 3.5 inches of lift even after it set in for a bit. Haven't heard anything about sag overtime with this kit but not too sure. Allows for great stretch and clearance on the trails.

Cons: Wears easily

Comments: Good lift for beginners, i did not buy it myself but have heard they are relatively cheap lifts. If doing heavier wheeling would recommend strong and better lift.

Price: $300.00
Pros: Its definetly easy to install and with minor trimming you can run 33" tires.
Cons: Took awhile for me to break in the add-a-leaf rear
Recommended? Yes

Comments: All in all the 3" lift from Rough Country is a good beginner lift, it takes a couple hours to install and allows you to run 33" tires with minor fender well trimming. It did take alittle longer than expected to break the add a leaf rear setup in but once its broken in it flexes just fine. I run no sway bars on my rig and this kit doesnt allow much body roll in turns like bigger lifts do.

Price: $300.00
Pros: Inexpensive, easy to install, added tire clearance
Cons: Pretty basic -- probably not for the serious off-roader
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Installed the kit (springs/shocks) in about three hours in my garage with basic tools and a borrowed coil spring compressor. Everything fit well, but I noticed some stability issues on rough surfaces due to poor caster geometry. I ended up buying a set of adjustable lower control arms that fixed the problem.
