Pros: Beefy, Great Flex, and you can't beat the price, install was easy with good instructions
Cons: ride quality isn't the best but definitely tolerable
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I was able to get this for a dealer price so i figured i would take my chances even if others downed on rough country and i am glad i did! The lift greatly increased my clearance and flex and the ride is about same as stock. The parts look really strong and beefy and i feel like they will last a while.

Pros: Bent arms for better clearance. Arms do not attach to transfer case skid plate making maintenance easier.
Cons: Originally it comes with cheep bolt in transfer case drop that the long arms attach to. I've installed custom brackets welded to the frame.

Price: $1,649.00
Pros: Easy to Install.
Cons: Should find out soon....
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The lift did take more than the 8-10 hours that the directions stated. It actually took me about 20ish mostly by myself. Don't forget this includes putting in the SYE and CV Shaft.

Looking to wheel it very soon.

Pros: the price
Cons: none found ...yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Will need to install adapter plates on your coil mounts in the rear to correct the angle. They can be expensive, but for the price the lift is a bang for the buck.

Price: $1,300.00
Pros: Everything
Cons: Need to upgrade Tie Rod, rear drive shaft and exhaust
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This kit is great. I spent hours looking for a Long Arm Kit and will all the reviews and phone calls to various company's I determined this kit was the best buy for the money. Heavy Duty and ton's of articulation make's this kit great.

I would recommend upgrading your front Tie Rod because I could rub. You need to upgrade the rear drive shaft due to vibration between 35-40 mph and your exhaust will have to be modified or purchase Gibson's Long Arm system.

Price: $1,400.00
Pros: easy install, great flex, looks awesome, PERFECT steering (no bumpsteer/death wobble/vibes.)
Cons: stiff ride, but hey, it's a jeep. muffler rattles against passenger side rear upper control arm, looking for something to pad it now.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Price shipped to my door with SYE and CV driveshaft was $1800.
Easy install, I took it to have it aligned and all it needed was toe adjustment. everything else was perfect. no steering issues AT ALL. no drive line vibes.

love it.
