Rough Country 3.25" Suspension Lift

I was thinking about putting this lift under my 99 TJ and was wondering if anyone has this lift and what do they think of it. It currently drives great down the road and I do not want to jeopardize the ride of it. It is considerably cheaper than other lifts, but sometimes cheaper is not the best way to go. Is this a great lift for the money, or a waste of money?

How about answering the question for the guy

OP: There are many reviews and builds concerning this lift. Look around the forum a bit and you'll find that a large majority of those running the lift are very pleased with it. Another big plus is RC has great customer service and gives you a Jeep Forum discount as well A good idea is to look for people who have the lift in their signature, PM them and ask them what they think about the lift since they've installed it.

My Rough Country 3.25 is awsome...............I am very pleased with the ride..................Don't believe the 4-6 hour install though. It took me twelve but I have a 97 and it didn't come apart nicely................Don't even think about installing the new springs without a spring compressor unless you have 100% high option medical and dental coverage.....................

Great lift I run the 4". I have a frame lift jack so I don't use a spring compressor. I disconnected the track bar and steering link then droped the whole suspension down!

I just installed the 3.25" lift, its good so far, I dont have the front swaybar installed yet since the old links are stuck on there. If I had more miles on it then I could comment more. the parts look good though(from what I can tell).

We sold one to a customer a couple weeks back and he seems to be happy with it.
