I would highly recommend the Rocky Road lift! It is a noticable difference but does not really hinder the vehicles performance. The compass and pat look better with the lift and they look more natural as if they should be that height in the first place.
I wouldn't recommend the RRO kit. Do it right and invest in new coils. I just installed coils from http://www.murchisonproducts.com.au/patriot.php and they're great. The factory springs are wimpy if you've noticed with 4 people and cargo in the back. The custom springs from Murchison will give you 2 inches, plus the springs that won't sag as much under a minor load. You'll need front camber bolts too. But you can pick those up at any parts store for $20. Then get'er aligned.
The Necessary Evil
Many ppl have the RRO kit and it's doing just fine. It was the only thing available for a very long time but it's great that we have other options now. I was the first to install it on a 4WD MK and have no complaints but seldom am I loaded down with ppl or cargo. These new springs may be 'better' but being shipped from Australia adds a lot to the price and if it's just for looks it's not very cost effective. Just sayin'....
The Necessary Evil
I did say I 'seldom' loaded it down, that doesn't mean 'never'. On the Hwy 126 'Worlds longest yard sale' the seats were folded down and the roof basket was full and I did haul an antique porcelain kitchen gas stove to Kansas another time.
