Pros: works great , for a cheap kit very saticfied
Cons: had to get difrent bolts ... says to reuse stock bolts but makes everything slack ..
Recommended? Yes

Comments: kit works great , was easy to install , and great for anyone who dosnt have much money to put on his machin ... cost my 1100$ because I took a difrent shock in the direction , (skyjacker)little more expensive ..
works great tho , I tried it in a few terrains , and had no problems with it , coils rock !!!
friends tried rough country leaf spring suspention suspention and horrible coments on those . after a 2klm ride , truck already droped 2 inches .


personaly I am looking into selling my kit next year to get a costom 10inch lift . but its only beacause I want to go up higher , its not because of the quality of my kit .

Price: $400.00
Pros: Comes with everything you need and should need, including Drop pitman arm, longer shocks, and skidplate drop brackets
Cons: Rides Very Stiff at first and only slightly stiff after a year.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just purchased this Lift Kit for My YJ but my buddy has had it on his for over a year. As long as it wears in the same as his the lift kit will be a nice ride on the trail and a little stiff on the road. I would definately recommend getting the upgraded steering stabilizer. the steering can be a little tough when you put 32 or 33 inch tires on it without the upgraded stabilizer. I cant say enough good things about this kit, i sooooo put my seal of approval on it.

Price: $518.00
Pros: I got the add-a-leaf, even though everyone said that it will sag, but haven't seen any sag, ...so far... for the money it really is a great kit.
Cons: they should just throw some brake lines into the kit and tack the price onto it, the "relocation brackets" are a joke, next investment besides tires is s.s. brake lines, for sure.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: definatly needs new brake lines added to the kit for a little more money.

Price: $1.00
Pros: Good off road (though not super)
Cons: Harsh ride, sloppy handling for on road use.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Kit was installed when I got the XJ. So far I've been happy with it for a mix of everyday/off-road use. Not great at either, but not bad at either. Having a set of long arms would help the kit greatly, I think - will update as the fundage allows.

Comments: Really is rough. Add a leaf starting to droop. Great for the price, but does not compare to high end kits. you get what you pay for in my opinion.

Comments: Great lift for the money. Easy to install came with everything needed. I added a steering stabilizer to stiffen up the steering due to the shimmy from the larger tires.

Comments: Great Starter lift and had the best bang for its buck. Two major flaws are the track bar drop bracket and the leaf springs sag faster then normal

Rough Country 4.5 inch suspension lift
Price: $800.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I payed about $800.00 for the Rough Country 4.5" Full Spring Kit. Also included in this price was a Rough Country Steering Stabilizer, and an upgrade to Nitrogen Shocks. I bought it through TopGunCustomz.

One bad thing with this lift was that I wasn't sent all the neeed hardware. I found myself heading down to the hardware store trying to find the right size bolt and nut it said to use in the instructions. Rough Country is not known for the "completeness" of their kits. If you want "completeness", go with Rubicon Express.

Of course, for $800.00, the lift isn't going to be top of the line. But I put it on. And it works. And it get's me places others can't go. And with a little fender trimming and 33's, it looks awesome.
