im happy with my rough country lift. its 4 inches. if you plan on disconnecting, you'll need longer brake lines. otherwise your fine.

I actually doubt you'll need longer brake lines with only 4" of suspension lift unless it has an unusually large amount of axle droop. With my very basic 5.5" RockKrawler lift, I did not need longer brake lines. It was only after I installed a 4.5" long arm Rubicon Express kit with flexier trackbars, longer shocks, flexier drag link, etc. that longer front brake lines were required. So it's more the lift itself, not just its height that determines when longer brake lines are required.

go get front brake lines from a 95 wrangler. They are longer than tj brake lines and work perfect. Cost less than $20 each and bolt right up.
