Price: $829.95
Pros: great kit, everything needed and sits nice and level. Easy to install with simple tools.
Cons: VERY rough ride and quite noisy.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This kit had everything i needed to do my lift, including all hardware and even new brake lines/relocating brackets. The nice thing is that i got the complete leafs so when i want to go bigger i have the option to use them again, not just an add a leaf. Overall i would suggest this kit to anyone looking to do a full lift on a limited budget. That being said this is not a cheap/budget build, just not as expensive or involved as a long arm lift.

Price: $200.00
Pros: durable,reliable,great base for the 6.5 inch lift with a few additional parts
Cons: add-a-leaf made the rear a little stiffer than i'd like.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: the lift is great can clear 33's. but, for daily driver recomend meaty 31's for fuel economy. solid lift has never broken. i do recomend having the hd lower control arm brackets welded onto the dana 30 up front if you intend to really wheel it. i sheared one of mine off. put the hd's on and never another problem.

Price: $599.00
Pros: all around great kit for the money. ride is wonderful. installation from 1 to 10 is about an 8. great kit
Cons: no cons....
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i have a 2001 jeep wrangler tj. i purchased a 4.5 in rough country suspension lift with shocks. this kit is wonderful. there are no downfalls about this kit.. i would highly recommend this kit to anyone. and if you are worried about the ride and handling. there are none .. this kit handles and rides like a dream.. one thing i do suggest, is if your jeep is older or has a good bit of miles. i would go ahead and change the wheel hub bearings (front). but i think you will be satisfied...
