I have the Rough Country 4" lift on my 03 Rubicon TJ...and it's great. Some minor problems-when we got it, the control arms weren't drilled for the grease fittings. No big deal, we did it fast. But then at 1 year the shock bushings wore out, replaced with others-and at 2 years the control arm bushings wore out. Duh...called RC direct and they sent out immediately the wrong bushings...had to call again but they sent the right ones the same day. I had heard from others their bushings were no good, but this was all around 2 years ago AFTER I installed them. The new bushings look like black poly, I'd guess better quality than what we got originally so my guess is they upgraded and supply better ones now. So yes, I would get another lift from them. It went in easily, everything fit where it was supposed to, like it was made for my rig!

I put the 3.25in on my Rubi about a week and half ago. No wheeling yet but I'm happy with it. I had to you the t-case drop b/c I had drive line vibrations.The t-case drop fixed all of that but I had few issues with that but had nothing to do with rough country. The skid plates shifted on me causing a large pain in the butt and the bolt on the cross bar that covers the automatic transmission is spinning inside the frame. I'm gonna have to fix that. One night leaving work I crossed a ditch and it was fine. This morning I was greasing the front end and noticed a smooth ring on my front drive shaft. I guess in crossing that ditch the front drive shaft and the skid plate came in contact with each other since I can't get that one spacer in there.

Anyhow get the lift. Mention the word "jeep forum" to rough country and they will give you 10% discount. The lift is same as anywhere else but they won't give you a discount unless you order it from them. I also ordered the quick disconnects from them and it was real simple to install.

The front end will need to be aligned once the lift is done. Get the regular steering stabilizer for the front not the 2.2 stabilizer. I got 3.25in lift, regular stabilizer, and quick disco's including sipping for 460 something.
