Very lacking for the price, the only sellingpoint is that the track bar is made to fit that lift. for $700 Your getting toward an OME lift if I remember correct.

I only dug for a total of 2 minutes, but this is pretty close and way cheaper, enough to tack on a BL/MML and get good flex if you want to run 33s

Lacking indeed. Also read the notes on the kit

"General Notes:
Not recommended for 2003 and newer Wranglers without adjustable control arms, fixed yoke, and rear c.v. driveshaft.

Shock Notes:
It is recommended that high quality shocks be used with all Rock Krawler Suspension Systems."

Add in extras you would need and you could do better. The kit CarolinaBound listed WITH shocks is 10 bucks less

Don't forget the $25 additional shipping surcharge due to weight.

the springs are about the only useful thing there. the rest would need replaced anyway.

Thanks for the info guys. Is this just a "cover their a$$" statement? Up to 31x12.50 tire recommended.

I do plan on going off road, mostly 2 tracks & dunes. No rocks or rivers or anything too serious.

I wouldn't touch that Rock Krawler kit, you don't get much for the $$$. Not to mention its dropped Pitman arm & dropped track bar bracket are a bad idea. Their comments about geometry & suspension lift height are misleading at best.
