good product for the most part. the trackbar bracket on the rear axle broke on mine, but i jsut welded it back into place. also, shocks are a "little" stiff. other than that, its a pretty good kit. im changing the shocks and sway links this summer.

Rear springs are too stiff and sit at about 6", I reinstalled the stock rear control arms and put the stock front springs in the rear. Much better, even front to rear

I just "fixed" my 97's small tires and low suspension with Rough Country's 4" X-Series. It rides rough, but I still haven't broken it in yet.

I looked at the Series 2 lift and it didn't have everything that I wanted. The X-series has more features for only a few hundred more. I think that's its worth it.

Now I just have to "Fix" the axles.

You might check out the Teraflex 3T. You can get it for about $560 shipped with Rancho RS5000's from sam's offroad in Tulsa. The site is http://www.sams4x4store.com/index.html. The ride is better than stock and I love the flex I get with this kit.

Mine easily cleared the 35" MTRs. I added JKS bl just because I like a lot of gap above the tires.

It just goes to show you can't always tell the depth of the well by the length of the handle on the pump.

I like mine. It rides great with the added weight of a tire carrier and a few other mods.

If that is really an "X" model did you upgrade your D35??

I have the rough country lift, for around 600 shipped, i love it, i also welded the front trackbar in place(death wobble is scary), the shocks suck, they are hard as a rock, but overall I love the lift, i am going to replace the shocks when it gets warmer out.
