Comments: I havent installed it yet , will update soon. It only comes with an add a leaf but I will probably replace that soon with a bastard pack. I just needed something fast to lift it a little so I could put a set of tires on the Jeep.

Comments: I have the full leaf kit with control arms. It was a great price and looks great. I wanted a moderate lift without losing my XJ as a DD. It's a great height I think. It was a little stiff at first but has gotten more "flexy" which only enhances off road capability. It still handles great on road though and is very tight.

Pros full leaf packs and good price
Cons none so far, few shipping errors
Recommended yes

Comments: I got a great price for a kit wil full leafs. I paid 450 shipped! I let them keep their shocks however which may have helped the price as I had a set of high end shocks that would fit already.

They sent me f-250 leaf springs by mistake, one phone call and it was corrected and they let me keep the ford springs! I should be able to get $100 bucks for them no problem.
They sent me the wrong u-bolts as well I just ran out and bought them myself.
Good customer service, they answer the phone right away and email you back literally in minutes.
I got 4" in the front and 2 3/4 in the rear. I will even it out with shackles.
Using Edelbrock Extreme IAS shocks this lift rid rides like a cadilac compared to my old stock setup.

Pros great lift kit quality parts
Cons none
Recommended yes

Comments: its a great kit for the price, many parts that rustys didnt have come with this kit. i got the nitro shocks and the bigger stabilizer. you will need a trac bar no doubt about it and i also did the steering box brace for good measure.
great flex and clearance, i follow my friend through almost everything he does and hes got a 8 inch rustys long arm with 35s and arb lockers

Pros Very nice quality. So far, no need for Transfer case drop kit.
Cons Does not come wit every single brand new bolt.
one of the U-Bolts they sent me had thread damage.
Recommended yes

Comments: Its the perfect size lift for someone who needs to replace an old worn suspension and doesn't want to deal with much, my rear leafs were sagging 3".
Its about the same price as stock replacement size parts. so its totally worth it.

Pros rides smooth
Cons took awhile to install :(
Recommended yes

Comments: Took awhile to install because it was my first install. but overall it was worth it. it makes huge difference in ride height, for bigger wheels, rides smoother then the stock suspension and it does flex!

Pros love the stance,
great flex
Cons look a couple tries for them to send me the clamps
Recommended yes

Comments: this is an excellent starter lift kit for any first time jeep owner. easy to install, and looks and rides great. I do recommend getting RC's wheel spacers to widen the stance of your jeep to account for this lift. all in all, great inexpensive lift($460 shipped to my door)

Pros Came with everything i needed
Cons Would have liked to see it come with a TC drop just in case.
Recommended yes

Comments: Fits my needs perfect as an entry level lift. Directions could be a little better if someone doesnt know much about mechanics.
