Any opinions?

I have a 2' lift on my jeep now and I'm wanting a 4' looked at the rough country one, it seemed to be a good deal. Just wondering anyone's personal opinion or if they like what they have on their jeep now! Thanks.

I have the Zone 4.25 combo lift. It's a 3" suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, and 1" motor mount lift. You can get it for the same price as the RC lift. They also have a 4" and 3" suspension lift.
I've had mine for a few weeks now and it rides pretty good ( better then stock). I just got 33" tires with it and it looks mean!!!

I was in the same situation as you when I bought the combo lift, it had a lot of really good reviews and lessened the chance of having to to do further work( drive shaft and SYE). I will post pics if you would like

I would love for you to. I have 31's now but I would definitely go up to 33 with a new lift.

The first is no lift, the second is with just lift, and the third is with rims and tires. I think it looks great i have not taken it of road yet but i am soon.
The tires are Good Year Duratracs 33X12.5 The rims are Black Rock 997 15x10 with a 4" back spacing.

enjoy, and the pics do it no justice for what it looks like in person

Nope I have the 3.73 and it does just fine. 5th gear going up hill will be worthless, but as far as picking up speed I think it is just fine.

I have the 4" RC, rides good, flexes good. And is a complete lift. Lot of options of course you can put on it you want, disconnects, sye+driveshaft, stabilizer, adjustable track bars, extended brake lines, etc. But out the box it does fine. Im runnin 33x12.50s on the stock rims right now until my new rims come in but they look alright. Put a 1.25 BL as well as a MML on it yesterday as well. Eventually im goin to get a set of xenon flat flares and some 35x14.50s though. Just gotta wait on some ebay sales to end. With the 33's the 3:73s do fine for highway, can hold 6th gear on cruise up hills pretty easily. With the 35's ill be droppin to 4:88 though at the same time i do the lockers.

I didn't have any fun with 33s on 3.73s and the five speed. I went to 4.56 and love it, but everyone's tolerance is different.

Depending on your budget, you could do a suspension lift and body lift combo for a low COG and without a tcase drop. Here is mine with a 2.5" suspension lift and a 1.25" body lift
