Is this "lift kit" worth picking up?

Found a used 4" short arm Rubicon Express kit on CL for $300. Is it worth it in your opinion?

If this were in my area I would definetly look at it. Looks like you would need a SYE kit to use the shaft.

I wouldn't . Looks like a lot but do a little research and see who is using what parts and how many negative comments you will find between this forum , Jeep Forum and Pirate. Its only 300 bucks but why not use that towards good parts . Do some research for yourself and see what the more experienced use. Most good lifts are a combination of different brands for a reason noy a kit under one brand name in particular.
