Welcome, I suggest you read through the 100 or so posts on lifts here, and on LOST JEEPs
All will point you in one direction
OME all the way
Forget Rustys, Rocky Road etc

I know many people hate on the Rocky Road Outfitters. I got my kit from them (I didn't buy it. Was a gift for thanksgiving from my grandparents) And got the Rockfather Deluxe kit, with OME shocks. Always go with OME shocks. The coils for the rear RRO comes with seems light, so I will replace it with OME coils in the rear. Are you planning a winch or heavy steel bumper (or both like me) that will determine if you need Heavy duty or medium duty coils in the front. I am going to have HD in front and MD in rear. Jeep rides smoother than a cadillac now. Even when I go over speed bumps at full speed. My mom has major back problems and has to really slow down her 2002 KJ so it doesn't hurt her on bumps, she rode my Jeep fine for a day full speed. She is jealous now.

misinformation
Where to start??
Bilstein shocks work as good as OME and ride the same IMO after installing several sets unless you have a CRD
Next if you are going aftermarket bumper and winch the OME 790s work much better, on a gasser even with stock bumper I would never use the medium front coils.
But yes they do ride 100% better after you "upgrade " to OME springs and either OME or Bilstein shocks
and again deal with companies who actually service their customers like JeepinByAl or AllJs both are great to deal with, if you have problems they will actually help you out unlike RRO.

true but I didn't buy my kit. I was planning on a similar kit from JBA but my grandparents got this, and I am not the person that can refuse a gift. They ride great. As for bumper I have an ARB steel bumper. (also a gift)

I know you didn't buy anything nor have to pay for it, this was for others so they don't make a mistake when lifting
Most are not as lucky as you and have things bought/installed/ and done for them

OK. Eventually I will but the JBA Arms and OME rear coils, then everything should be perfect. I'll keep the A-arms from RRO for a couple months until I can save enough for the coils and A-arms all together. I rather like the strut spacer that they have. from RRO. But am rather liking the kit in general. The guys that installed all my stuff did an excellent job. They went through the extra effort that every time a bolt or something was rusted they got the replacement ones to be brand new.
