Need help identifying friends lift kit

Hey jeepers,

My buddy bought a TJ over the weekend, it already has a lift on it,
But the dealer didn't know what brand or size. Trying to give him a hand IDing the parts.

The only number we can find on it is attached. The shocks are grey along with the stabilizer bar with black boots over them. Any help would be appreciated. I can take more pics as well.

That pic doesn't show the entire part number and is that of the shock absorber? If so, the brand of shock absorber won't necessarily be the same as the brand of suspension lift.

Showing a few good well lit photos of the control arms would be more useful towards possibly identifying the suspension lift brand.

The stabilizer bar reads
Made In Mexico
Q11012
660913

Seems to be the only part number we can find.

As requested above, a photo of the control arms will be about the only way of possibly identifying the brand of suspension lift. Springs are springs and any brand of shock absorber can be installed with any brand of suspension lift.

Rough Country 4'' X system.

Also I would HIGHLY suggest securing the jam nut on that control arm. It needs to be tight to the control arm. With just seeing that .....I'd go over the whole jeep and see what else is messed up.

Should it be tightened up towards the joint where it flexes? Or towards the actual black part of the arm?

So it's a Rough Country 4" X series lift? It has adjustable control arms, adjustable track bar. Pictures match up ok.

What do you mean how has the zerk fitting hasn't been busted off? On the control arm? What would have broken it off, crawling?
