Comments: It was everything I needed to fit some 32's on the XJ. I got it on Ebay for 400 shipped. Install took about 10 hours(beer). My XJ rode better than stock when we were done. I would highly recommend.

Pros: great flex,easy install,great price
Cons: little rougher than other but its a jeep so i expect it to be rough and its held up better then anyone said it would
Recommended? Yes

Comments: given the amount of haters of rough country i admit i was a little scared when i bought this kit but i went with the full leaf pack and havent had any sagging yet(3yrs) and the part i love the most as usuall is all the people who complained about the kit either never ran the kit or cheaped out and went AAL which no matter what kit you run will sag

Price: $575.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I purchased the "system which came with lower control arms and new leaf springs and shocks. All that had to be re set after install was the toe. The camber was dead in the middle of factory specs. I would recommend to all who do any lit over 3" to purchase a new non adjustable track bar and steering stabilizer. I installed the system without a lift but had air in about 6 hours.
