i have a 1998 4cyl with 15inch wheels and 31 duratracs all stock on the suspension. some one is selling a 2 in pro comp lift with shocks and shock boots for $200 and i was wondering if its worth it and will i be able to add a body lift later on to fit 33? i want to know what people think about this deal and if the kit is good? thanks for your guys help and time
does it ride that bad, should i just give in to the zone 4 in zone lift kit or the
Rough Country Jeep Wrangler 4" Suspension Lift. i want to be able to run 33's in two years or when my current 31's wear out
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.
1998 Wrangler Sport: 4.0 with a 5 speed, 2 1/2" spring lift, 33" Duratracs, Warn winch, and few other things.
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.
