Price: $700.00
Pros: Excellent Setup, performance 2.2 shocks are awesome, all adjustables trac bar and lc's
Cons: some hardware (nuts and bolts didn't go on quite right, had to run to the hardware store and get some new ones) and i had to drill the hole out on the trac bar a little bit, the end that goes to the axle. not the heim end.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: only given it 4 because of some install trouble, other than that the finished product rides well performs flawless, no noises. also did the dual steering stabilizer with it from rc as well. awesome setup. it sits a little higher than 4 inches. perfect size lift for sticking with factory short arms.

Price: $720.00
Pros: Very complete kit, Great price, pretty easy install... can run 35" x 12.5 with no issues on TJ. Company backs up the product. Great short arm kit nice flex
Cons: Std. nitro shocks give a harsh ride. Upgrade them with the 2.2 od BDS( Great Shock)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought this kit with incentives paid $720.00 including shipping. Springs and Disco's had marks on them so they sent me all new springs and disco's and let me keep the orig. ones. Everything is adjustable, uppers,lowers, F/R track bars. Flexes nice. You can run 35"x12.50's with no issues and they will not looked cramed in. Instructions are not the best, thet could be more detaied for the DIYer but any logical thinker can get through it. Std. shock give a harsh ride so up grade them when you buy the kit, they will give you a price break thats worth wild or go with a diff. shock manuf.

Price: $1,050.00
Pros: Complete and all contents shipped. Instructions were logical, including warnings. Ride is night vs. day compared to stock, with less rolling back/forth and side-to-side throughout driving. Adjustable control arms a big plus. Was able to eliminate drive-line vibes when setting the pinion angle. The only thing I'd add would be a SYE/CV drive shaft combination.
Cons: Minor inaccuracies in the instructions, but nothing counter-productive to the install, and they could have used more details, ultimately. Pictures included were OK illustrations, however too few in number.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Price includes the 2.2 shocks. Beefy shocks too...

After installation, the Jeep was level, rode tight, and there was less body roll during velocity changes (accel/decel, and turns). For the price, the kit is pretty comprehensive, including replacement brake lines. Components themselves appear solidly built, and the entire kit is bolt-on (with drilling).

Inclusion of the adjustable controls arms is a big benefit. I haven't opted for SYE/CV drive shaft yet, but I've eliminated drive-line vibes after setting the pinion angle to match the t-case output shaft. Gotta say, the inclinometer on my android phone came in handy, and proved accurate enough, but that's a topic for a different review. Your mileage may vary on the vibes, and we'll see if I blow a u-joint in the future.

No DW, even up through 70 mph on New England (read: bumpy) highways. It was a problem, but I'll be keeping an eye out... parts may settle soon.

Price: $1,400.00
Pros: Great flex, and improved ride quality over short arm lifts. Super beefy, and well built.
Cons: Uses a radius arm style design
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Rough Country X series 4" Long Arm Kit
Little skinny on the install instructions, but I made it through without any issue. The components are all super heavy duty. The quality of components are great, as is the assembly. I do not reccomend this kit for the novice, and it will require the rear section of the exhaust to be tweaked a bit for clearance. The design saves Rubicon owners from having to upgrade the rear drive shaft, and allows for plenty of adjustment for both pinion angles. It's is the most complete kit i have seen for any where near the price. The shocks take a bit of getting use to on the road, but are great for the intended use off road. The RC customer service has been great, and they have taken care of my minor issue with lightening fast speed. Great product, great price!

Price: $2,000.00
Pros: Very good thing for a good price!
Cons: No
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very good lift kit with very good articulation for a non LA suspension.
But rear shocks and springs very hard! Especially for daily driving.
With disconnected front stabilizer rides great!
But SYE and 2CV driveshaft is required.

Price: $1,000.00
Pros: Works Perfectly
Cons: Like all lifts time consuming on install
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Awesome product. I would deffinately recommend this lift if you want something thats going to get you everything you need out of a 4 inch lift.
This product is like the Regular Series II lift but with all the upgrades included, such as the extended brake lines, adjustable track bar, adjustable upper and lower control arms, quick disco sway bar links, etc.

Pros: price
Cons: threaded sleeved arms
Recommended? No

Comments: Other than 2 failed LCA's that stripped out the internal adjustment threads causing axle movement and kLUNKS, all is well after went to hydro shocks.
Kit has been superceded by one with heim joint/jamnut arms. Get it
