Ya its a nice kit. can't beat it for the money. haven't put the t-case drop on it yet, but i am going to have to. Got a little vibration at around 25-30. played around at lunch and the rear flexes really nice, i have the saybars connected so the front kinda stayed put, wish i had a camera. Its a good kit though. I highly encourage the two piece strut compressor ( auto zone loan-a-tool) its a life saver.

Its good, a little rougher than stock. but i have only put about 20 miles on the kit, so it should soften up a little.

I am going to measure when i get home tonight, I measured the way it sat stock. The T-case drop cured all vibrations. The drop is not to much though, you don't have to move your shift boot like you do with a larger t-case drop. The 2,4,R are a little spongy but it stays in gear.

I got about 2.75in up front, and about 2.25in in the back. Remember the TJ's have a big front rake so this did level it out some.
