I bought the Procomp lift new in Oct. and paid $400. I have a 99 TJ with 31x10.5x15 tires. I love the lift, shocks are stiff (as other threads have noted).

if you don't mind a ride like a dump truck, you could probably talk him down in price & run that kit for a while till your kidneys beg for better shocks.

I would not purchase Pro Comp shocks after reading about them here, however, my Jeep already had them installed and I don't think it rides bad at all and Hawaii is nortorious for it's bad roads.

FWIW I will replace them when needed with OME shocks.

I wouldn't touch a ProComp lift. Not only are their parts made in China, the ES-3000 shocks that kit comes with are about the stiffest riding shock absorber you can run. I installed a set of them into my first TJ 16 years ago and they were in the trash can within 6 months. I wouldn't even sell them to a friend, I didn't want to feel like I had screwed him with bad/stiff riding shocks.

Like I said, my ES-3000 shocks ride pretty good IMO. Maybe I need to ride in something with a better setup for a comparison. I'm not saying they are great, just don't see the bad that other talk about. Regardless, I still wouldn't buy them.

Also, I heard bad things about Rough Country too as for how they ride.

Pro Comp shocks Are valved wrong for JEEP's..More like for a full size truck..

Their coil springs ride very well with the right shock valved for a JEEP..

I have had 2 of their lift kits..One on my full size Bronco.. I changed out the shocks for some Rancho RS9000's..

No, came complete, though I did do a front end alignment also. No vibrations, just a stiffer ride. I let some air out of the tires (they were at 35 psi) and that helped a bit.

I really like the lift, but I don't plan on running bigger tires.

I don't have a TJ but I just got a Summit catalog. They sell Pro Comp and there's a little insignia that claims Pro Comp lifts are made in the USA. Is this incorrect? I was also fairly certain their lifts were made in China.

I'm looking for a lift and I pretty much have my heart set on an AEV. No way in hell would I EVER KNOWINGLY put parts made in China on my Jeep.
