cj-7 lift kits. what's the difference?

Seems like they are cut and dry. But yet the cost difference is about three hundred dollars. Is there something I'm not seeing. I was thinking about 4" with shocks. Nitro? Hydro?

Yeah, it's ride quality. Compare the ride between something like Rough Country and OME's and you will know why the OME's cost more. Really read up, this subject has been beat to death and there are a ton of postings on it.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.

Well said. Nothing like people going cheap on a lift and then complain about ride quality.
