Stay away from the Thornbird if you ever plan to drive on pavement.

At 4", you're reasonably likely to need new driveshafts soon. Especially if it's a 2 door. Just FYI.

And I would not go that high with a Rough Country lift.

Discount brands are good for some things, but they're "discount" for a reason. The more extreme the application, the more their "discount-ness" tends to show. And four inches is a big lift on a JK.

Stick with more "credible" brands like Rock Krawler, TeraFlex, Full Traction, AEV, Clayton, etc.

If you can't afford those types of components, I'd back off of my height expectations until I could either get one of the more affordable "credible" kits or to the point that the "discount" kit wasn't such a risk.
