I bought my TJ just recently with a 4" Rough Country lift under. It will absolutely beat you to death. I thought it looked really cool all lifted up. Now if it could be taken back to stock with not much $$ involved, I'd have it in the shop Monday morning......

It's a good kit for the price. I have the kit. It's bumpy at times, but honestly, it's a Jeep not a cadillac. I didn't use the xsfer case drop that came with the kit, but ymmv.

I just put a 2.25" BB on with Black Diamond shocks. So far the ride isn't too bad. I have heard that some of the other shocks (Rough Country Twin Tube being one of them) will give ya a rougher ride.
