So I just saw it's shipping surcharge 24.99$ plus standard ground shipping 59.99$ so grand total for skyjacker 625.97$ big difference of 126.02.

I cannot speak from experience but I would still choose skyjacker. As with everything you get what you pay for. I'm sure both have mixture of reviews but personally am not sold with the reviews from RC. There are many threads similar to yours, I just say do a lot of research.

Check out the Zone 4" lift from ZoneOffroad.com -- that's the one I'm considering and I've heard of lots of good reviews for it (I don't recall seeing any bad reviews to be honest)...price is also comparable to the ones you're considering.

If you don't mind me asking, where and how did you get free shipping? I'm trying to decide between those same 2 lifts, and the shipping is really all that keeping me from the skyjacker.

I have the RC, and its ok. Don't have anything to compare it to, but I just went on a 230 mile round trip today, and it drove as good as my SUCK does. Both of them have TC drops, and I will be working on raising mine back up. It screws with everything as far as shifters go. For mudding or light wheeling they are good, but anything worse and I would save for a better kit. I would suggest bar pin eliminators. They will prolong the life of the shock bushings, as well as make installing them easier. Otherwise, grease the pins and they will be easier to install.
