fiftycal I got the 608S lift kit installed last year on my JK. No problems. Smooth ride. Considering the price, I'm a happy camper.

Stag I have had the 3.5" series II lift on for about two years. About a month ago I changed out the shocks. You can’t beat the lift for the price.

Will09JK I've had the 3.5" series II almost a year now on my 09' JKU. Wheeled a bunch in PA and after one of the winters in NYC and potholes that feel like I've been wheelin' all winter I have really nothing negative to say, ride is stiff but who really complains about that or just upgrade shocks no big deal. I have changed the steering stabilizer with AEV draglink flip kit, a synergy tie rod and Yukon 5.13 gears. Thinking of getting the rest of the control arms but again looks great. Run 35" now thinking of putting 37's on

BaddAndy It still rides great. A little stiffer with the winter temps. Last week it got to 60 degrees and that cadillac ride came back. It has settled a little, but evenly, and maybe due to adding accessories. No rusting occuring, but we don't get much salting of roads either. I have since installed the kit's front track bar bracket that I modified just to be able to relocate the steering stabilizer. My friend is happy with his on his JKU, and my other friends are awaiting funds to get theirs.

thericker Just set up an appointment to put the Rough Country 3.5 lift kit with 2.0 shocks. Anyone have any new reviews before I bring it in?

bonestockracing Was thinking about getting the x series kit but this kit seams to be good for what I need & want.

BaddAndy I'm happy with mine after 13,000 miles on and offroad, and all my friends are putting the same kit on their 2013s too. We all use a JKS adj. front trackbar inlieu of the bracket, and a rear Teraflex trackbar bracket.

bonestockracing I am interested in this kit, any more updates?

Macknjack I have two jeeps. Both have rough country lifts. Both are great. I have a 4.5" kit on my xj and 3" pieced together on the jk. My xj needed adjustable arms to fix the caster/ pinion angle. The only complaints of the jk lift is that it needs longer brake lines. The brackets don't cut it.

I don't have a big baller budget with big price tag parts. RC gets the job done!

Jkm57 Since I had mine. Not even a year I replaced
1. RK Coils
2. Front track bar bracket with JKS track bar
3. Control arms back to stock with AEV geometry brackets
About to purchase a high steer kit to get rid of the drop pitman arm.

About a year after putting it on. The first components to go were the shocks. I called RC to get replacements shocks from them, not as freebies but to just purchase new ones, and they were not helpful in the slightest; probably thought I was calling to complain.

I went with Bilsteins because no one would call me back and I could not get a straight answer from them.

I did the same with the coils. I now have new Old Man Emu springs sitting in the garage waiting for me to get them installed.

If I add up the original cost of the RC lift, and then the parts I have replaced along the way, I would have been money ahead to save a little longer. I have easily got enough in the suspension as it sits, to have just went with something like Rock Krawler's JK 2.5 Max Travel setup.
