Help me find a new lift!

Hi all guys.
I am ready to lift my wj crd.
I have a set of 31 and i'd like to buy a 4" lift.
Saw The rough country x series and The price is so good, but I heard that is not a good lift.
Can you tell me witch problems can I have? I am from Italy and in case of problems... Is too far from the factory

Thanks in advance

You only need 2.5"+ for 31" tires. Do you really want 4"? You can save quite a lot of money with a smaller lift.

Yes, that's right. But is possible to get bigger tires in the future... In case of 2" lift, I can get spacers, right? Is a good idea?

I've had great results with the Rc x series lift. I don't think I've seen a negative from one person that actually used the x lift. The cheaper lift looks like their cheap tj lift which blows but the x series for the wj is in a whole different class. Included are some poser flex shots with 31.5 tires at the end of the slick rock trail near Utica res in California

There are 2" spacers, 2" springs, 3" springs, and 4"+ springs available.

If you're planning for bigger tires, you can go 3" and not have to worry about adjustable control arms. Once you reach 4", adjustable arms are virtually a must-have.

Yeah! Thanks for your opinion.

Another one with rcx 4"?

Another question. With a lift I may have some vibrations. You know if that is true? And on the diesel?

I've had no vibes but I didn't run the tc drop and I have a double carden type front driveline. I think the reoezza joint would die at 4" lift
