Price: $899.99
Pros: Handles obstacles very well off road and the highway ride feel very smooth. When combined with bigger tires, the kit gives my jeep a very aggressive look.
Cons: No cons once the lift was installed but being a newbie the install took a little longer than I would have liked. In addition to getting an alignment remember to go back after about thirty days to get everything tightened up again.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: As I explained in the pros the kit is great and after six months of driving with it I still have no issues whatsoever. I highly recommend it and think it is comparable to others on the mainstream.

Pros: Direct replacement and everything fits in stock mounts
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This was an easy install with slightly more lift than it says you will get out of it. The parts are all silver which is the same color as my jeep. The brackets and brake line lowering mounts are powder coated for you already so they will last you.

Price: $500.00
Pros: easy to install, high enough to go playing but still have a daily driver
Cons: none for what i use it for
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Like i said it was easy to install myself. Its just the right height to hit the trails and still use as a daily driver. With the 3.5 did not need a SYE just had to get some adjustable lower control arms.

Pros: -didn't take long to put in -got 4" out of it
Cons: -none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It came with all the parts that I needed and didn't take me long to put in. When I just put it in and didn't have my 33's on yet I was the same height as my buddies TJ with 4.5" OME springs and shocks and he had 33's on his at the time.

Price: $600.00
Pros: Inexpensive, good quality
Cons: No mention that factory tranny skid plate goes to scrap heap
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good quality kit. Used Bilstein 5100 shocks. Rides great, handles super off road. Would have been nice if anything on RE's web site or install instructions would have mentioned the auto transmission skid plate gets scrapped. Called RE they said sorry, they would update web site.

Price: $700.00
Pros: The shocks this kit came with kinda blow. The springs are good and all the parts held up except the bushings in the sway bar end links.
Cons: Sway bar end link bushings! They dont last long! Yes, they were greased.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The install of this lift was fairly simple when mechanically inclined. It was a little time consuming, but was done that day. Over all, I like it. I have 35's tucked under the lift right now will little issues when wheeling. When flexing too much, the tires rub the wheel wells, other than that, it clears them with plenty room to spare.

Comments: The installation was great, minus the fact that i had trouble with my front shocks, but that is tobe dealt with if you live in the rust belt. I just finished the install today, so i can't really review it just quite yet...

Pros: Simple Cheap Works
Cons: Transmission drops included didn't help the vibes
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I like the kit. I especially liked the fact that you can upgrade to a superflex for fairly cheap. Expect to put an SYE/CV DS in as the TC drops are not enough.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: Quality product. Even the rear track bar bracket was designed for a sye kit when pinion angle is adjusted. Ride quality is a little better. Needed a drop pitman arm that was not included in kit but it is a STANDARD kit and the price was right too. If I had the chance I would have gotten the super flex kit instead of the standard but im still in collage so you know how that goes. Does need a SYE kit.
