Rough Country 4" lift. worth it or not?

Jeep TJ Suspension Lift

ive seen the 2.5' lift and seems to hold up pretty well, but then i saw this on RC website. has anybody installed this lift, and if so, how well does it perform? my thinking is you get what you pay for, but i figure i would get some input from the guys here.

I have the same lift and it works good but, the shocks are junk, you might want a adjustable track bar, stock steering stabalizer is junk, might want quick disconnects. Now that I know what I do I would spend the extra money for a better more complete lift. I just got the jeep and wanted it lifted fast. Myself, I am just going to piece together the lift i want and dont mind spending the extra money or time. And you will want to get some extended brake lines

man i just had the 4" put on a few months back and i cant complain. it flexs nice for a short arm kit. u should get an upgraded steering stabilizer when u order the kit tho, will be much nicer! but cant really complain much about it. i mostly crawl and stuff wid mine and aint let me down yet.

Depends on what kind of offroading you do. You really dont need quick disconnects, just saves some time instead of unbolting them everytime. They disconnect your sway bar to give you more articulation (more tire on the ground, not floating in the air). If I am rock crawling, take them off everytime.

it's a complete kit to get you lifted and room for 33s.
the coils are good.
the basic shocks are stiff.
the lower control arms are beefy, but have no flex joint...look into reinforcing your lower control arm axle mounts
everything else is good for what it is. you can upgrade as you go.

Trust me you'll love the newer longarm kit from RC you cant beat it! Nice flex joints adj tracbars nice shocks and a comfortable ride.The shortarm is a ok lift for the money, but in time you'll want something different something more comfortable,the longarm was a simple instaal also.
