Don't believe in all the negativity about Rough Country .Most is second hand info and always I knew a buddy who . Those that had issues was due to improper installation or extreme use of what it was intended for .I f you go with their X series military wrap kit it is designed for more abuse than the standard kit

It's not negativity, it's you get what you pay for. I personally had a rough country kit and it didn't do what I needed. If you want a lifted jeep to pick up groceries with over size tires and stock gears, rough country is there for you. If you're into doing things right like sye, lockers, deep gears and want to wheel your jeep and have fun, look elsewhere. My absolute biggest gripe with rough country was how quickly the bushings wore out and the lack of downward articulation.

looks good. Im debating on forking out the cash to have a kit installed. I have a guy who does fabrication on jeeps at 40 bucks an hour and I also have a 3-inch body lift that I want to replace with a 1 inch but the bolts are rusted to hell. I figured the it will be worth it in the end. Im all about doing my own work but it gets to the point where working in a drive way in the Florida heat where you just say screw it. This wouldn't be difficult but the former owner cut corners on basically every mod
