Rough Country 2.5" Lift!!!

Is anyone running this lift right now? I was looking to lift my 97 Sahara at the end of summer and wanted some input on the lift:

Jeep TJ Suspension Lift

Comes with shocks and springs and everything you really need to do the lift....I hear its a bit of a rough ride, but I don't care becasue I know I'm not driving a Caddy-Mack or the like. A jeeps supposed to ride a bit rough...

Thanks for your input in advance.

I have the 3.75" combo lift. It's 2.5 " suspension lift and 1.25" body lift. Rode with the suspension lift for a few eeks and it wasn't rough as everyone said. My only complaints were the instructions were pretty lacking... otherwise I really like the lift.

No complaints on mine, running it about a year now.
Might want to get a reat track bar bracket while your at it. (Or adjustable track bar)

I installed the RC 3.25" kit last month. 2.5" springs, 3/4" spacers and 2.2 shocks.

So far I love it. It rides much better then the skyjacker 2" BB that was on it from the previous owner. I also installed a 1.25" BL while I was at it.

Here's a thread I started with some pics of the lift progress.

we've had ours on for a little over a year now,had to replace the shocks about a month ago, they use rubber instead of polyurethane and it was riding pretty bad,I put skyjacker hydro's on it,rides alot better now,other than the shock issue I'm pleased.

Im running the 3.25 which is the 2.5 plus a spacer on top. Its not a bad lift at all. The only thing i would add is adjustable track bars and quick discos.

+1 on the adjustable track bars. I wasnt crazy about drilling a hole in my front track bar bracket.

Can someone explain to me the need for a rear track bar relocation?

I am very ignorant when it comes to this but I am looking into lifting my Jeep.
I'm not saying its not needed. I am asking what it does-why and why I should get the relocation bracket.

Again, I'm not wise intelligent when it comes to the mechanics underneath a Jeep. I know more than the average duck, but have a lot to learn

EDIT:

I' m contemplating this:

Rc 2.5 Coil Suspension Lift
2.2 Performance Shocks
2.2 Steering Stabilizer
Track Relocation Bracket
(4) Red Shock Boots

TOTAL= $434 shipped.

Another thought would be to get the springs but not those shocks and maybe buy different shocks from someone else.

i dont know much, but from what ive read the rear track bar bracket realigns your rear axle back to normal position underneath your jeep, because when you put the lift on it shifts over to one side slightly (the passenger side i think?) so the bracket corrects this shift.

also i thought i read that the shift wasn't big enough to require the bracket, but for $15 bucks from RC might as well i say.

I have the2.5 rc lift and relocation bracket. It will keep the axle aligned so the left tire won't have a chance to rub in the spring. Check my pics at www.myoffroad.auto.Officelive.com for my 2.5 rc instal

Since I commented on this back in June of last year, just thought I would chime in and say I'm still satisfied with this lift.

I have the rc 2.5 without the bracket. The bracket is shit. Makes everything look pretty but not NEEDED. If you do use it your gonna need to weld it. the hardware is a lil sketchy.
