Cons: Instruction were half ass

Price: $819.99
Pros: Fairly easy to install. Havn't had long enough to see how it flex's and holds up.
Cons: Doesn't come with all new hardware. You have to reuse alot of the bolts that are on the jeep already.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Took me 3 days to install at about 8 hours a day. This was just me and one other person with all hand tools and nothing to lift the jeep up with other than a tiny jack, small jack stands and 2 cinder blocks. It came with everything that you need. I love the sway bar disconnects, they are extremely easy to take on and off. I hated how alot of it didn't come with new hardware (nuts and bolts). I had to reuse alot of nuts and bolts. The stock screw that holds on the sway bars will mash the bushing bad and cut it. I had to make a trip to lowes to buy a bolt and washer to get around this. The break line extensions it comes with make you disconnect the previously used bracket (in itself is a nightmare due to screw location) and doesn't come with another one. So you'll have to fabricate your own or screw it into somewhere else.

Price: $720.00
Pros: Ride quality gives solid feedback to the driver without being harsh.
Cons: Installation instructions leave a lot to be desired if someone is new to doing their own work. Requires re-use of much of the old hardware.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Overall, this system is well worth the money. It is definitely a budget minded lift in that it requires the re-use of much of the old hardware. That being said, it includes all the high-wear essentials like bushings and even some higher end perks like a stainless steel brake line extension and spring eyes with military wrap.
The ride is great by my standards, but I like a solid feeling suspension. It provides very good feedback to the driver and reduces a lot of the "buckboard" feel that is inherent to fully leaf sprung vehicles.
While a slip yoke eliminator kit is listed by Rubicon Express as optional for this kit, I would highly recommend planning on doing one as soon as possible after lifting your vehicle.
All in all having the opportunity to do it over again, I would still purchase this kit.

Cons: Took a while to break in

Comments: Great lift kit. Rides a little rough, but that is to be expected with leaf springs and a short wheelbase. Easy to install, very complete kit.

Price: $1,200.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: everything was great the lift looks fantastic. i had problems with my front brake line extensions they are hard line extensions and my old lines were rusted to crap. so i had to replace all the new lines and purchased sky jacker soft line extensions for 200$. the other problem i had was for the rear leafs maybe the stock shackles were'nt long enough but i had to slightly compress the springs to have them fit in. as well as the rear shocks i had to fabricate new bottom mounting brakets for the shocks as the old bracket would not allow my shocks to fit cause the axle was in the way
