Wj Kevins off road?

Hey, I am looking to upgrade my 04 WJ and the 2.75 suspension lift from Kevins offroad. It is not a brand name, but the parts seem very compatible and the price is attractive.

Has anyone ever used kevins offroad lifts before?
Heres the link to check it out.

WJ Grand Cherokee Ultimate BFYB 2.75 Lift Kit w/ new coils, w/ Bilstein Monotube shocks [KOR-9932-BIL] - $679.97 : KevinsOffRoad.com - Hard-KOR Jeep Accessories for Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Commander, Liberty, and Cherokee

if that doesn't work, go to the Kevins offroad website, go to the store, lift kits, and its on the 5th page for WJ lift kits.

i would greatly appreciate some feedback since this is not a well known brand or company.

Kevins is a reputable dealer and has been lifting and driving Jeeps for quite a while. You may be able to find cheaper than his, but you'll be hard pressed to find better quality.

Im running that same kit but with RE monotube shocks instead. I am very happy with the kit. Its great quality, IF you ever get it. Be prepared to wait awhile.

if you don't mind waiting a month for your parts and being overcharged for shipping, you should be fine....

if it would bother you if you were told that something shipped two weeks ago, and you call to see where it is, and they tell you that it didn't ship because they didn't have the part in stock, and you start to figure out that you've just been lied to, than you shouldn't have any issues either....

KOR is good stuff, i can't knock that.... i feel they are over priced, over hyped and that there shipping rates are 40x what they should be

i believe their stuff is good they just need 100x more quality control. like the over priced a-arm spacer that came in and was welded wrong slag and splatter all over. to top it off i had to drill out the holes because the plates didn't line up correctly. agreed shipping is a little steeper and they do nothing for Jeepforum discounts

also Note on Kevins List on Contents for that kit NO Trac-bar, or even swaybar links. yes they do include their a-arm spacer. but for 3" ull be fine out one a Trac-bar is a MUST

IRO gives 1/2 off Shipping to Jeep Forum Members Btw.

everything ive gotten from IRO has been top notch not a single complaint.

ive heard good things about clayton long arm kits. pricey, but supposedly worth the money and a pretty complete kit.

in all honesty, im not doing a lot of wheeling as of right now so i dont think the long arm would be necessary, i am looking for a solid suspension lift with some flat black pro comp rims and bfg at's

does anyone have any suggestions for a solid and reliable suspension kit ( from 2.5 to 4 inches) that is also affordable.

does the 4" zone come with everything i need? because it is a 4", will it be necessary to buy JK disconnects also?
it comes with the control arms i see?
have you ever heard anything about the rock krawler kits? they make a 3.5 suspension lift that i have also been looking at
