The RC lift is a good one. I've heard its a little stiffer ride but the performance for what you pay for the kit is worth it. Skyjacker also has a 4" lift with shocks for around $550 that's pretty good minus the lack of grease fittings on control arms. The only thing I didn't like about the RC was that you drill into the stock track bar bracket rather than installing a relocation bracket.

I just got a quote for a 2.5 inch RC lift and the track bar relocation bracket comes with the kit.

That's definitely a good thing in my book. Had to fix a friends RC kit that he had a tire shop installed recently. They just drilled into the stock bracket...twice. Apparently they couldn't read a tape measure on the first hole and when he called RC about it, they told him that's how it was supposed to be done. I would much rather have a relocation bracket. Of course, his was their 4" kit. All in all its a good kit though.

I have the RC N2.0 on my LJ. I have to agree the ride is a bit stiff and not forgiving. We were riding down a long dirt road heading to some trails and the ride was so rough at 15mph it actually shook the radio out of the dash. No joke!

It does ride well off road when your crawling. Ultimately i'm looking for a new lift that absorbs a little bit more.

I have the zone 4in with nitro shocks and really really like it. Its a cheap lift that you can build up as you go.

Another option could be some ZJ/3" coils up front, 2 inch spacers in the rear and a 1.25 BL. Plenty of guys running it here with no issues.

If it can't be fixed with squats or fish oil...your probably gonna die (u aware?)
