well i have the RC "X" kit(4in), and love it, and RC customer servise is top notch and i will guarente you will not see that from SJ. If your looking at the economy lift i would advise you to wait a little bit longer and save,yes i know that sucks, and i know MY RC kit is not the best but it is complete(unlike either of the econo lifts) and the parts are beefy and tough, and i know it will be here for a long time, and RC will back me up, either of the brands higher end kits are good,IMO, and the kit i have is RC higher end kit

I have the Skyjacker 4" standard lift kit which I think is the same only they used to call it that three years ago when I got it.

It's got everything you need in the box... I didn't have to get a single nut from another place.

And I have helped install the RC 3.75" lift kit on a friend's TJ a few months ago. Other than the re-use of your OEM lower control arms, I would say it is also complete.

I personally would go for the Skyjacker again if I had to. I have been beating the hell out of it wheeling for three years and going on the fourth and it hasn't sagged, broke or anything :thumbsup:

However, the RC lift kit has a much more softer ride than the Skyjacker's.

Hope this helps :2thumbsup:
