I want a 4 inch lift. Rough Country has the 4" Series II Lift on sale. Is that all i need or do i have to get the 4" X-series Lift thats has twice as much. It is for a 98 tj wrangler. The 4" X-series Lift comes with much more but the series II says its a complete kit.

I think this might be what he is trying to say.

There's a big reason the X-series costs more---all 8 control arms are adjustable. With the II series kit, you get four new lowers (no uppers), and they're fixed (although presumably a little longer than stock) rather than adjustable.
Do a search and read up on pinion angle, caster, and wheelbase adjustments and you'll see why it's worth the extra money to get the adjustable arms. Not to mention they're supposed to be significantly stronger than the stock arms.

The X series lift is more than twice the lift of the series 2. The series 2 lift is not complete as much as they would like to say it is. If you want to go cheap I would look at the RC 2.5" lift or the 3.25" lift. Many here had put the series 2 in and realized they then have to fork out more cash for adjustable uppers and lowers. Plus with the X not only do you get adjustable lowers and uppers you sway bar disconnects. If you jeep is stock you are also going to have to look at an SYE and and a new drive shaft, with 4" of lift, where as with 2.5" if you did a 1.25" body lift and 1" motor mount lift you probably would not.
