Price: $229.00
Pros: Easy install Great "bang for the buck"
Cons: Ordered from Quadratec and the kit is dropshipped from RE. It takes 2 weeks.
Recommended? No

Comments: We found the instructions online from a few different places and did some reading. A week ahead of time we PB Blasted all the nuts and bolts thet needed to be removed. The entire install was very easy. It took us 2 hours from start to finish. We are both handy but never installed one before. You do not need a spring compressor to do this but we used a jack to jack up the opposite side of the jeep. I would buy new hardware ahead of time. We had to run out on labor day to buy 2 new bolts that we broke.

For someone looking to upgrade to 31's this is a perfect kit.

Comments: Our little Jeep club helped me install the Rubicon Budget Boost. Worked out great. Jeep looks great. We had a little trouble with the springs, but other than that - not a hard job.

Comments: This lift kit and 31" Pro Comp's were included with my TJ when I bought it used in July 2009. Looks good, handles good, no complaints here. I have the kit with the shocks. Have no idea how old it is, but it looks new and rides just fine.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: I did the bb because it was a cheap way to get to 31 inch tires, now run 33 with a 1 inch bl and mml. These came with longer shocks, so I get good articulation until the tires tuck into the flares. I plan to upgrade to OME spring lift because I like the low center of gravity. Recommend the bb for starters because it costs less and you can do it yourself.

Comments: This was the first mod I did to The Jeep, local shop here had it installed in about 1 1/2 hours. Works perfect for tires up to a 33", granted I'm running 31 10.50's.

Pros: Shocks included in the kit.
Cons: Shocks seem "stiff" like a nitro shock.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Everything went pretty smooth, took about 5.5 hours by myself. The directions were pretty vague for a first-timer. about a year after the install one of the shocks started to leak. I contacted (where I got the lift from) and told them about the situation. They contacted RE and I was able to warranty it through them. It worked out in the end. Still pretty happy with the overall look and general performance.
