Price: $250.00
Pros: It lifted my jeep to a nice level. It looks really nice from the back.
Cons: I am used to really stiff suspensions because I came from a sports car background. The lift made it a softer ride. I don't know if its the kit or just lifts in general but it is softer and you loose responsiveness in steering. I got used to it though and it is fairly nice. Other than that it rides nice.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I pieced this kit together. The only part that I substituted are the rear sway bar links. I used some rubicon express ones that I got from quadatec for $30.

Pros: Easy to install
Cons: No drop pitman arm
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I installed this kit to my 2004 Jeep Wrangler. I have been very satisfied with the ride. The directions could have been a litttle more clear. Price was great for a complete 4" lift.

Price: $449.95
Pros: Well made, solid lift, for the price, Gained more height than expected. Ride, handling, and performance are very good*. (*after additional mods)
Cons: Some rear driveline vibrations after install which I suspected would happen adding 4" to a stock rear axle setup.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Although I did have some rear driveline vibration after the install, overall I am very happy with the Lift kit. The parts were very well made and installation was really not all that bad. The install took me the better part of a weekend. (The 6-8 hour install claim made on the website MAY be true if the kit came with a team of Rough Country mechanics!) I did gain a lot more height and clearance than I expected, and now realize that I could have easily gone with 35" tires instead of 33". Once I eliminated the driveline vibrations (*by removing the kits relocating and drop brackets and installing an SYE kit, D/C driveshaft, adjustable UCA's, adjustable track bar, coil spring correction plates, and shock relocators) I was impressed with the ride. It is definitely better than stock on the street, and 200% better on the trail. Also Rough Country does offer a 10% discount on all orders to Jeep forum members and their shipping speed is fantastic.

Price: $459.99
Pros: Quite a few, another great fitting kit at an affordable price.
Cons: Parts bags not identified easily, drilling a hole for relocating the front track bar is a known problem and maybe a front track bar relocation mount would be a good idea to bring to market and include with the kit.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Completed installation on the garage floor in 10 hours with basic tools and a few air tools. Instructions were good with pics and the video available on the websites product page helps new folks feel a little better when taking on this project. Parts are powdercoated as usual and hardware is top notch as in previous kits that I have worked with. Like before, a quick call to Rough Country (Jefferey) was worth it when I saved at least 10% as I purchased the N2 lift kit, 1.25 body lift kit, motor mount lift kit and N2 stabilizer. I opted to not drill the hole for the front track bar relocation and instead went with a Fatboys Garage relocation mount which run an additional 35 dollars and was well worth it. For those of us who have worked with jeep suspensions the hardware is a no brainer but for those out who are not so experienced with all the hardware please look over the parts list and make your own parts bag befor beginning as the bags are not marked very well. Overall I rate the kit a 9/10.

Pros: Easy install, great customer service, looks great.
Cons: A little squeaky and noisy.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My cousin and I put it on working 2-3 hours a night for 4 nights. As we were finishing the rear of the vehicle we noticed we were short a set of bushings. Called Rough Country at 3 pm on a Thursday the parts were there by 10 am Friday. Got the steering stabilizer and nitro shocks upgrade. Had it on for close to six months now, so far no problems with the lift kit.

Price: $499.00
Pros: Ride much smoother, these reviews for the series II UPDATES were not in effect until sometime after MAY,2011.
Cons: rear upper shock mount slid out of it's bushing, reinstalled no problem. Rear track bar bracket bolts backed out replaced with nylocks no problems now.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: People talk about it not being a complete kit? Consider this a lot of other "complete" kits do not come with shocks.. This kit does come with decent shocks.
I do Recommend a JKS or similar adjustable front track bar. Also purchased some 2" bumpstops and JKS discos too. Consider getting YJ front brakelines at least too.

The ride I'm getting out of this kit since June is really nice and smooth, I have owned a BDS, RE kits and this kit on road is better riding then EITHER KIT for me. OFF road the RE kit is better no illusions here. For the price range this kit is it.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Cheap, included everything needed but front disco's for the beginning/moderate jeeper. Shocks/springs ride GREAT!
Cons: upper bushings in rear shocks easily slide themselves out. Had to install upper bar pin eliminators
Recommended? Yes

Comments: CS is great and responsive. Shocks/spring rates are really great and beat out my $1k skyjacker kit for ride and driveability(on road). Flexes nearly as much with the rubber bushings as my value flex skyjacker kit did with the heim joints.
with the 4" lift, you will most likely need a 1" mml or go the sye/cv d-shaft route to keep your vibrations down.

Price: $800.00
Pros: Easy install for novice.
Cons: Rough Ride
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Included Shock Upgrade, Adjustable Front Track Bar, Drop Pitman Arm(not used), and Performance Steering Stabilizer. I like Rough Country stuff a lot, I'm not a hardcore wheeler, but plan on doing a good amount. The price and customer service is great on from RC. The kit should include all new hardware even if it costs a couple more bucks and new brake lines.
