Need your guys help choosing a lift!!!!!

Been looking at a bunch if lifts and have my sights set on a few. But I can across a rough country combo lift. I have searched and couldn't find much about them. Basically I want to know the pros and cons of the combo lift. Any help is much appreciated

Good price. Can the kit be bought without shocks?

I went with Rock Krawler. Little more expensive, lifetime guarantee on the parts. They build in more lift due to most owners putting on bumpers, plates etc so when the jeep "settles" you end up with the lift you bought such as 3.5".

I have the 3.5 X factor and have not looked back.

I think he's referring to this kit being a combo kit - part suspension lift/part body lift.

I personally, have no interest in body lift and would probably not go for this combo.

Yes, there is not many reasons to do a BL on a JK. As for the Rough Country coils on a JK, we have seen guys need to swap them out due to them sagging. The last thing you want to do is skimp the first go around when doing a lift because it always cost more if you have to do it twice!

Have to agree with this. I was stubborn and went the budget route thinking it was all I I needed but it is never all you need with a Jeep lol. Wish I went with a straight out 3" lift to begin with. Would have saved me a lot of money in the end

Ok thanks for all the info. Looks like that lift is out the door, and so is rough country. Any suggestions? Links?

Looking to go about three inches. I like the 2.5 but really want the 4 but don't wanna redo drive shafts so I'm settling with the 3-3.5
