Price: $875.00
Pros: raises vehicle
Cons: wears out and breaks
Recommended? No

Comments: i have had this on my xj for 3 years and about 8000 miles. I had my quick disconnects snap. the bushings in the control arms went bad. The track bar tie rod end went bad. When these things start wearing out it gets dangerous to drive. DEATH WOBBLE . Dealing with customer service is a nightmare. They wont return calls or emails. They sent me the wrong bushings and making me send them back. To repair the control arms is $60 each. That's $240 for all 4. They are the only people that sell the bushings, so you are screwed. Be safe and wise, buy a higher quality kit.

Price: $500.00
Pros: comes with everything you need to lift you jeep, new shocks, new coil springs, added leaf spring, transfer case drop
Cons: Doesn't come with SYE, doesnt come with Long Arms, death wobble accrues once in a while, comes with short arms
Recommended? Yes

Comments: this lift kit is awesome! it comes with everything you need to lift your jeep. but i recommended getting an SYE and long arms. if you dont offroad you probably dont need an SYE or long arms but if you offroad like me a lot yes i do recommended getting it while installing the lift kit or after you install it. but all in all its an awesome lift!

Price: $550.00
Pros: Lifted my truck, smooth, looks great!
Cons: Need to get adjustable trac bar not really a con though.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I would recommend this kit to everyone. For the price you pay I definitely think its worth it. 4.5 inches of lift for only 550 with shipping is awesome. It rides pretty smooth compared to stock and still handles well. My truck still has plenty of on road manners and even better manners off road. I was able to clear my 31s and hopefully soon clear my 33s. The only bad part so far is when reversing you cant go more then like 8mph or the truck starts to sway so bad youll crash but theres no real need to reverse so fast anyway. Other then that i love my lift. Also i recommend spraying all your bolts with penetrating oil for weeks before installing any type of lift because every single bolt and sleeve was stuck or snapped

Price: $829.95
Pros: great kit, everything needed and sits nice and level. Easy to install with simple tools.
Cons: VERY rough ride and quite noisy.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This kit had everything i needed to do my lift, including all hardware and even new brake lines/relocating brackets. The nice thing is that i got the complete leafs so when i want to go bigger i have the option to use them again, not just an add a leaf. Overall i would suggest this kit to anyone looking to do a full lift on a limited budget. That being said this is not a cheap/budget build, just not as expensive or involved as a long arm lift.

Price: $200.00
Pros: durable,reliable,great base for the 6.5 inch lift with a few additional parts
Cons: add-a-leaf made the rear a little stiffer than i'd like.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: the lift is great can clear 33's. but, for daily driver recomend meaty 31's for fuel economy. solid lift has never broken. i do recomend having the hd lower control arm brackets welded onto the dana 30 up front if you intend to really wheel it. i sheared one of mine off. put the hd's on and never another problem.
