Rough Country 2.5" Lift

Does anyone have this lift kit? Here is the description:

IRON ROCK OFF ROAD: TJ 2.5" Suspension Kit

This suspension lift is designed to give your Jeep TJ optimal on and off-road performance with up to a 32” tire. It offers a perfect balance for a daily driver that also desires great off-road performance. These ride quality and performance gains are delivered by our new progressive rate coil springs combined with our Performance 2.2 shocks.

Includes
  • Front and rear progressive coils
  • Transfer case spacers to maintain stock driveline angles
  • Front and rear Performance 2.2 shocks
  • All necessary hardware
For those of you that have it how does it ride? Are you happy with it? What size tires are you running? Finally, have you experienced any driveline issues?

For the price it just seems too good to be true. Also pics are welcome

Order it directly from rough country. I've never heard of that site, or that company. Tons of scammers out there. Be careful.

Got it on my 04 and like it alot . It,s not so high that it,s hard to get in or out and very little needs changed . My Wrangler needed new shocks anyway .
It,s a four hour job for one guy .

If you get it Invert, let us know how you like it. That's the one I want to get. I've researched quite a bit and I've narrowed it down to this lift. I like the fact that they have new springs (that I need anyway), new shocks, transfer case drop, and it levels the Jeep out, (the front is lifted more so it looks level). I've heard it rides a little rough, but mine rides so soft now that I'm kinda looking forward to stiffening it up a little. I might regret that I suppose. And as was stated before, buy it from Rough Country. Post some pics when you get it installed. I'd love to see how it looks.

Yeah after looking at that site more I just realized that not only did they copy and paste the description from the Rough Country website but the pictures of the lift as well. Plus it's the same price directly from Rough Country so that's where I'll get it from if/when I decide to do this. I just have to convince myself to buy the life, pay for the install (I have almost no tools), and buy new tires. This will probably total out to around $1300 or so. What kind of tires do ya'll suggest running? I want some 32"s but I'm having trouble finding them in a 15" wheel size. What width should I look for?

What do you mean? The tcase was lowered to far? Or you had to pay for it?

My friend ordered a kit off Iron Rock Offroad and is very happy with it. It's for a Grand Cherokee though so I can't tell you how well the Tj kit will work. But I just wanted to let you know that as far as I know the company is reputable.

Well, I'm sure that's all good....but it's the same price as ordering direct from RC. It's much less fuss to deal with a company that already has reputable customer service.

Mike rough country Sent 1-1/2 inch pucks to lower the TC . It drove ok but the shifter would not go into 2-4 and reverse all the way . I took out the 1-1/2 pucks and used washers (5) works much better ??

I put it on my wifes 06 about two yrs ago, the lift itself was fine but ended up replacing the shocks with skyjackers,the shocks came with rubber bushings not polyurethane and wore out in no time,but with the skyjackers its all good,

Buy it from rough country and use the words "jeep forum" for a 10% discount.
