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...

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.

Pros: I got the add-a-leaf, even though everyone said that it will sag, but haven't seen any sag, 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.

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
