Would You Recommend: Yes

ARB/OME tech support was top notch. They spent nearly an hour on the phone with me helping me plan my lift. Their suggestion on daystar bushings that would work with their leafs was a time saver as well as informing me that I could run medium 5 leaf rear springs in the front. The lift went on great I can't say the same for the removal of the stock items Overall I gained about 3.5" front 4" rear. No Vibs and I didn't have to drop the T-case. I used the Rancho u-bolts kits which included wedges for the rear to adjust the drive line angle.

Once upon a time I had time and money, then I bought a Jeep. Now I have no time and no money. And I lived Happily Ever After.

I'm at about 10 months and still no issues. Enjoying the lift & the fact that I only spent about $500.

LIFT: 2.5" Old Man Emu (OME) Lift.

SHOCKS: I ran the OME shocks from the kit.

SYE/CVD: At the time I did not run a SYE or CV shaft.

TIRES/WHEELS: I ran this lift with 31x10.50R15s on stock steel wheels (15x7... don't recall backspacing).

Likes: This was a very nice lift. the ride was almost as compliant as stock, there was good flex. I didn't have a lot of settling, either.

Dis-Likes: Not cheap... I got a good deal, though. I also ended up having to put a lift shackle on to clear the 31s under compression. Of course, that is largely because of the GREAT flex.

Would You Recommend: Yes. If you aren't looking to go large, the OME is a great kit... and would also be a good option to replace stock springs to get a little better height.

LIFT: My last lift on my YJ was a SOA Conversion. This puts the spring on top of the axle, rather than under it... lift is about 6". I was also running custom leaf packs (A stock YJ pack with an extra leaf (cut down from a Ford Explorer, because I had those leafs).

SHOCKS: I ran Rancho 9000 series shocks front and rear... 9012s up front, for a LOT of travel.

SYE/CVD: With this lift I ran a SYE and a CV shaft in the rear.

TIRES/WHEELS: I was running Super Swamper 34x9.50 15s AR-767s, I don't recall the backspacing, but they had less than stock wheels) and then GoodYear Wrangler MT/R 35x12.50R15s. I ran 15x8 AR 767s, also less backspacing than a stock wheel.

Likes: The ride was quite nice considering the size of the tires. I also ran it without track bars or a sway bar... I was used to its handling. On the good side, the cost wasn't much t do the lift, but it does require fab skills... and NO shortcuts. There are a lot of things that should be modified to do this right.

Dis-Likes: Killed rear springs pretty regularly with axle wrap... Fixed that, though.

Would You Recommend: Yes. But, it requires care, patience and not a desire to cut corners.

Dis-Likes: Springs did sag quickly, but i think it was actually 5.5" of lift when new.

Would You Recommend: Yes but I would have liked to to a SOA back then. I am currently getting everything together to do a SOA.

RE 4.5", 1" BL, 33's

Finally got the SOA done. Well at least drivable. Still need a front drive line and need to figure out what I want to do with the stearing before I go play.

LIFT: 2.5" Rough Country spring lift, 1" Boomerang lift Shackles, 1" RC BL with new mounts, raised front and rear fender flares and fender flare trim.

SHOCKS: Stock RC shocks, upgraded steering stabilizer. No bumpstops.
SYE/CVD: Yes, Rugged ridge SYE and Rugged Ridge CV style DS This was a must for me. My slip yoke was hanging way out but the trunions on the yokes by the tc were contacting eachother on bumps.
TIRES/WHEELS: 32x11.5x15 BFG MT KM2, Black rock 15" rims(unsure of backspace)

Likes: Cheap and got more than the desired lift.

Dis-Likes: Not realy dislikes but issues I had. I did get an SYE and CV DS becuse i was having driveline issues. I could have gotten a TC drop kit but IMHO it was a temporary fix. Some day I want to "flat belly" and i needed to just upgrade. Also I did have to get longer brake lines made. This was easy enough and I ended up replacing all the brake lines in the process anyway. My stock lines would not have worked at all.

Would You Recommend: Yes, just keep in mind that even though this is bolt on you may have other issues to deal with.

4" Lift Kit install 33"x12.5 on 15" rims

I just completed installing a 4" Rough Country Kit on 33"x12.5 on 15" rims with 3.75 backspacing. Today I purchased and installed Bushwacker 6"cut-out pocket flares. The Lift Kit took around 12 Hours to install in my driveway, and 4 Hours to fabricate and install the 6" Flares. The ride is Fantastic and smooth.....

Likes: The ride is much more firmer and comfortable. Articulation has improved. The kit was complete and RC customer service was helpful when running into snags installing the kit. The look is much better than I anticipated. Of course my factory springs were flat, so I ended up getting 3.5-4.0" out of the left with the Shackles. RC was the best 2.5" kit for the money.

Dis-Likes: The instructions that came with the RC kit left out several key issues and problems. However, picking up the phone and calling RC was easy and helpful. Jeff was the most knowledgeable.

Would You Recommend: Yes. This is the best bang for the buck on a YJ lift kit. I have lifted both TJs and YJs and this kit, by far, rides better and looks better than several other companies. IMHO.

I had so much lift from the RC 2.5" lift and the 1" shackles that I added 33x12.5x15 on 15x10.

Installed the Rough Country 4 inch lift this pasty week and I have to say the N2o kit is riding pretty soft on the paved roads. I did not install the front track bar and I am going to get a telescopic front track bar. The rear trac bar is coming off. I did hook the front sway bar up with the included links, but will be getting quick connects for it as well. All in all, I like the 4 inch RC kit. Much softer than I thought it would be. The off road capability is good for now and I expect it to get better once the sway disconnects come in and the rear trac bar comes off. For the money, its hard to beat on a budget.

Shocks: Stock, and probable wore out.
LIFT: BDS 2" spring lift.
SHOCKS: Stock, and probable wore out.
TIRES/WHEELS: 32" BFG ATs, 15" American Wheels

Likes: The lift kit was on it when I purchased the vehicle 6 months ago. I have noticed during this time that the overall ride quality is decent. . Off road manner is acceptable for entry level springs.

Dis-Likes: The only thing I don't like about them is that the rear end of jeep is a lil stiff and has big bounce to it if ever going to fast for a bump.

Would You Recommend: Yes. I consider this to be an reasonable economy level springs.

My jeep came with 4" pro comp lift, however the PO was a lady who just used it as am around town toy so she removed 2 leaves to turn them into a 3 leaf pack to soften the ride and lower it down a bit for ease of entry. Springs worked god but wandered all over the road. I put 4" Rustys off road springs on it and 6" shackles on the back (4" is stock). They flexed and rode very well. I was super impressed by the rustys springs

Lift:Pro Comp Kit w/ Rusty's Off Road Springs
Tires: 32/11.50/15 BFG A/T's
Likes: All around fantstic springs on and off road. Easily stuffed the 32's
Dislikes: For some reason the rear springs did not reach the stock rear shackles. They
hit the frame before I could get the bolt in. I could have lowered the jeep and forced the springs to lengthen a bit but I just put the longer shackles on the back and the set up worked fantastic.

Cool A few YJs in my past

I've had a few YJs in my past.

First was a stock '91 4.0L.
4" Skyjacker lift: ran nice but didn't like all the religious propaganda on the directions.
5.5" SUA custom set from National Spring in El Cajon, CA. Those leafs were a dream. Weighed the Jeep and they made springs custom to my needs. They were super supple 13-14 leaf packs. Incredibly flexible. Ran Rancho 9000s upside down on this lift, w/o any problems.

Second was a '94 4.0L stock Sahara.
Rubicon Express 4.5" Extreme-Duty SUA lift. I ran Bilstein 7100s and it was awesome. Precise flex and movement. It was so sweet of a ride. However, it was stolen from SDSU before I got a real chance to enjoy it.

Third, was a '92 4.0L w/ 37s & 2.5" SOA.
Bought with no-name-visible (maybe Superlift) SOA lift.
I upgraded to Rubicon Express 1.5" SOA leafs. They were ok, but I quickly snapped a main leaf while out wheeling. That wasn't fun. After research, I noticed that this was NOT uncommon.
Upgraded to National Spring 0-1" SOA custom leafs. Again, custom springs matched to my YJ's weight. They're a dream.
Current Status: stretched my wheelbase by moving the center pin in the front 2" forward, and lengthened the rear springs 6" while moving the center pin 3" rearward (National Spring, El Cajon, CA). It flexes incredibly well now, and the spring packs are strong enough that I don't need a traction bar on the rear axle with the 4.0L axle (NV4500 trans & AtlasII 4.3). I'm currently running 14" front Bilstein 5150's and 12" rear 5150's.

I've been happiest with custom packs from National Spring.

Lift: Rough Country 4" N2.0
shocks: n2.0
shackles: stock

i'm using the stock driveshaft with just the tcase drop. no driveline problems at all. running 33" mtz in the front and baja claws in the back. lift took 5 days to put in. ran into all kinds of problems. found out my steering stabilizer was totally shot. tie rod ends. ended up running new brakelines in the front and still have to do the rear. worked out because the brake drop brackets were kinda shitty ended up getting new rubber lines and mounted them on the frame right by the shock. also took out my sway bar and didn't put in any bumpstops. love it so far.

Pro Comp coil conversion

I have a 95' YJ with the Pro Comp coil conversion kit, 4.88 gears, quick lock in the rear, and 33" Nitto Terra Grappler's. My opinion of the kit is this; it's NOT a bolt in kit, we ended up welding most of it on, it is not very strong, I have caster issues after taking it around a motor cross track, but the ride quality is great, it looks cool, and gives you plenty of room for 35's. I am planning to go back to leaf springs with the V8 conversion thats in the works now. I would recommend this kit for people who are not planning on hard core rock crawling, but want a cool looking, nice riding Jeep for mild trails.

Check out the other YJ I got for $1K, he pulled out of my shop, spun out, got hit in the rear wheel, pulled back in, and sold it to me, NICE!

I installed a Rub. Exp 2.5" complete kit with all 4 leafs, shocks, front track bar relo. brkt, brake line extenders, sway bar disconnects, rear axle angle shims, and t-case lowering spacers. Overall a very nice kit, took me one day, with air tools, and no frozen bolts. A few things to note:

Shocks did not come with dust boots, front shocks did not come with lower bolt sleeves, I reused my old ones. The supplied new U-bolts bent when I torqued them, I reused my old stock U bolts, which are very strong. I do not have an SYE, but am installing one very soon. I developed a rear shaft vibration on decel on the highway. Also there were no pictures of the front brake line extenders insalled. Not a big deal, just thought it should of had some direction for the installer. Instead of upgrading to greasable shackle bolts, I just greased the heck out of the new bushings.

I think I got almost 4" of actual lift. I highly recommend this kit. Click image for larger version

LIFT:2.5" OME Lift with 5/8" M.O.R.E. Greaseable Boomerang Shackles.
SYE/CVD: No but maybe in the future. I didn't think 2.5" was enough to merit it.
TIRES/WHEELS: 31x10.5" All Country Radial LXT

Likes: Very Smooth and plush. Got way more lift out of it then I thought I would. Ended up with close to 4.5" of lift from my flat sad stock springs. I may add the SYE in the future because of vibration, but there aren't any whenever I accelerate, only when I downshift at high speed.

Dis-Likes: Little bit of vibration when I downshift over 40mph but no other driveline vibrations. And it did come with a transfer case drop that I chose not to add, opting to just see how it went and put in an SYE if it was bad.

Would You Recommend: Absolutely. It was my first run at suspension change out and it only took me and a friend one afternoon. (Which I know is long for some of you, but I was just happy to do it myself.) I was super happy with the combo of M.O.R.E. greaseable shackles and the OME system make for a nice ride. I pulled my rear tracbar and swaybar, but the swaybar is going back in with longer disconnects and an adjustable front tracbar. The rear one is just going to stay gone.
