Price: $600.00
Pros: Nice height, all components needed where included, price.
Cons: Most of them are not the kits problem, it is from a 10 year old jeep with 150k+ miles
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good easy install, had a horrible DW problem that was mostly cured by the allignment. A little DW remained, so I am install UCA, that unfortunately didn't come with the kit.

Price: $650.00
Pros: Pretty flexible, easy to install, cheap
Cons: Directions aren't always correct.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great lift for a great price. Every dealing I've had with the staff at Rough Country has been great. The lift went in pretty easy. Took about a week when putting it in after work and on a Saturday with a couple days off. All in all, not too bad but more than the directions say. Lots of flex with the sway bars disconnected. You really need longer brake lines and diff breather tubes as well as bump-stops with this kit. I liked the product so much, I recommended and helped install it in a friend's XJ.

Price: $600.00
Pros: Provides good amount of lift, flexes pretty well, upgraded to full leaf instead of aal at purchase
Cons: ride is a little stiff, but not terrible, seems to have settled quite a bit (could be my imagination)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great kit, deffinatly go for full leaf instead of add a leaf. Would also recomend uca's since this kit only provides lca's.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Very detailed instructions, parts were of good quallity, and everything seemed to line up and bolt on just fine.
Cons: As of now, im very happy with the kit.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The kit i bought came with the add a leafs. Everything was great, nothing seemed to give me trouble on installation and i had everything i needed pretty much. I do suggest to upgrade the shocks if being driven on the street. Id also replace the front brake lines instead of using the kits relocation brackets. Also, i would upgrade to the rear leaf kit instead of add a leafs because the OE springs tend to sag.

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
