1. is this a good brand
2. what should i watch out for when i go to look at it

I have heard mixed reviews on RC. I have heard they are just fine and other people say they are one of the worst out there. IMO they are just fine i have a 3.25 RC lift. I got it for a good price with disconnects and steering stablizer.

I bought my 4 inch rouch country lift on craigslist. I ended up spending a lot of money after that to make it tolerable just because Rough Country does ride rough. At two and a half inches, it will not ride as rough.

How much is he asking? Brand new 2.5 inch lifts from rough country are only about 300$.

Thats up to you then if the condition is good. Double check the price of it new before buying it used. Try and get a good deal.

30's should look fine with a 2.5 in. 32's or 33's would look better though. I would go bigger with your next tire change definitly.
Here is my 2" bb lift with 32's

Do whatever you want. Itīs your money and your Jeep.
I would safe a bit more money and buy another lift with a better ride.
