i have the cheaper rough country lift. its alright.. i mean it def gets the job done, but now i have to spend more money and time to upgrade the RC stuff. for example, i think the shocks are way too stiff, im planning on switchin to some RE monotubes asap. and the kit didnt come with sway bar discos or extended brake lines or adj track bars. and the directions are the worst ever.

EDIT: Also im constantly worried about those fixed lower control arms, and the stock uppers, i cant wait to get rid of those.
on the lighter side, it did give me a chance to learn how everything works and i was able to install it myself. PLus it came with some cool stickers haha

2000 XJ

will work for jeep parts

Boogieman sold that Jeep. The RC 4" kit may have been the reason why.

2005 Black Rubicon - OME 933/942 - 4" Bilstein 5100 (canister up) - JKS Adj Track Bars Front/Rear - JKS Quicker Discos - 285/75/16
