Pros: Kit comes with everything needed and has great quality in its products. Excellent ride quality and off road performance
Cons: I would have to say the only con would be the price.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is one of the best lifts you can buy for SUA. It includes everything that is needed for a quality and complete lift.

The ride on the road is very good. Im using the monotube shocks and im very impressed with them. Definitely a big improvement over the Rough Country shocks i had before.

The off road quality is very good too. I have very good flex as well. I went on a ramp and used my quick disconnects. I had 2 feet of flex before my rear tire started coming off the ground. That was with my little 32" tires on as well. I can easily fit 35" tires and still have all my flex.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting a big lift without going to an SOA.

Pros: Great ride, good flex.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Have really enjoyed it so far. Fairly easy to install...make sure to get plenty of PB for those old bolts. I have noticed a much better ride on and off road since and don't hear any of the squeaks that my old lift would make. Over all, a quality product I would recommend to all!

Pros: Rides good on the hardtop, good articulation.
Cons: I can't think of any
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It's a big investment but the ride is worth it. It gets the looks and gives them right back. The skid plate is a big plus and the removable access cutout is nice too. This is all you need.

Comments: This lift is frikken awesome. Combined with the 1 inch poly body lift, this is the perfect size for a middle of the road but extremely capable YJ.

Comments: Good lift easy install. the Pro Comp springs that came with the set are like riding a hard tail until you break them in. Once the springs break in the ride is very nice.(for a jeep) If I knew then what I know now I would have gone SOA
