RCD Suspension Lift KIt Advice

Looking to get This Lift Kit, does anyone have this kit that can give advice to whether it is a good buy or not? How is the ride quality.

I suggest you take a look at either a OME ultimate lift Old Man Emu Ultimate TJ/LJ Wrangler Kit | dpgoffroad.com, (best choice), or if your budget doesn't allow that, a Zone 4.25" combo lift. Zone Offroad 4-1/4" Combo System 97-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ J25/J26

Both of those lifts couple a less than 4" suspension lift with a small body lift and a motor mount lift, so you still get the height, just not all in the suspension. The benefit of doing it that way is that you don't need the transfer case drop (which kind of defeats the purpose of the lift), It keeps your steering geometry closer to stock so it drives better, they allow you to use your factory control arms which are better than those after market ones, it gives you about an extra inch of clearance under your oil pan, and if you ever want to do a tummy tuck, the small body lift sets you up to do that.

^^^^ you got it. Listen to this. Well known and tested brands. And smarter than 4 in suspension money wise because those get expensive with all the extra components needed.
