Rugged Ridge lift?! 4.5"

I bought a 4.5" ORV rugged ridge lift last year
And I'm planning to put it on this weekend. I know
I have everything I need parts wise. I just
want to know how the lift is going to treat
me on and off road?? And can I expect it
to sag? I have a 100lb winch on the front
will I want a spacer to keep it level?

Plz help.. There are no reviews on this lift.
It's like I'm the only poor sorry sucker
that bought it!!

I know a few folks that have it. We install them regularly at the shop. Three of the last five have needed either a bigger t case drop or sye and driveshaft. Its about on the same level as the Skyjacker, Pro Comp and Rancho as far as on and off road performance. Not a bad kit for a dual purpose daily driver. I have noticed that Rugged Ridge instructions always suck though. Good luck, post some pics when you're done!

Put it on and find out. If you don't like it, take it off and sell it.

I'm pretty sure I know what I'm talking about. I think...

If it's like the rest of the stuff they make you would be better off throwing it in the recycling bin and piecing together a lift comprised of quality parts. I have yet to be impressed with anything I have bought with the ruggid ridge name on it.
