rough country x series review

I am ready to pull the trigger on the Rough Counrty X Series with the shock upgrade the the SYE - It is going to cost me like $1600. Can you give me a review if you are running this lift and if it is worth it or not? I want to make sure i will be happy with this??

Make sure you talk to Jeffery at RC and tell him you are a jeep forum member he will give 10% off. As far as the lift it's the one I would get if I had the kind of cash. It's in the plans for the future, but not by the end of the summer when I need new tires, so I am going to go with the 2.5" RC lift for now. The X series in it's price range pretty much can't be beat. Make sure you get the 4" lift, because the 6" lift will require long arms.

Well worth it. The kit gets great flex and really has a great on road ride with the 2.2 shocks and all adj. arms. You wont be disapointed. The only way you would ever want to upgrade your suspension is if you decide to make the jump to longarms.

just put the first 500 miles on mine. everything is great. install went well and wasn't too complex. The flex is great and the 2.2 shocks provide a very nice ride on road. Pull the trigger. You wont be disappointed. By far the best performance minded kit for those on a budget.
