Is the lift just coils and shocks?

Shocks, spacers, brake line brackets, trackbar brackets, and sway bar links. For $200? And he has rubi springs he said he would include for $50. I have a sahara would the rubi springs be better?

Can't say about the rubi coils. In all the install should be pretty easy. Mine was my first lift install. Was a learning experience.

What make of lift is this?

I'm pretty sure all TJ springs are the same. But I'm even more sure Sahara and Rubi springs are exactly the same. For about $500 you can get a complete lift. new, shocks, springs, bumpstops, trackbar relocation, and sway bar links.

4 door right? I know some of the 2 door jks are putting in rubi coils as kind of a poor mans lift and getting about 2 inches out of them. If you're 2 door I dont think theyd help ya much.

There is a Jeep Engineer on another forum that said all the springs are the same height, but Rubi springs are a little stiffer. Same height though. I can PM you the link if you want. Don't want to post it here and have a Mod

Yup. I think the rubi couls are like 19/60 which when added to a regular 2 door gives around 2 inches. I almost bought some myself.

I recall reading that a 4 door is too heavy so it won't work on them.

I wouldn't think so. For a little more $$ you can get the complete RC 3.25" kit. If I read correctly of the items your getting for $200, that would not get you any more lift than you currently have without buying springs. You would be replacing a bunch of parts for nothing.

EDIT:
This sounds like what your looking at. But it doesn't include shocks. So you would be getting a pretty good deal then

Jeep JK Wrangler Suspension Lift
^^ X2.... IMO, I'd go new, just because the complete kit as John described above come with all the mounting hardware you'll need, and you're for sure getting the right pieces for the lift you want.

I just installed the same lift (RC 3.25") and I did it in two evenings pretty much by myself. You'll need to go to Autozone and rent spring compressors.

Just my 2 cents...

As of now it looks as if the weather is going to play a huge factor regarding my Friday agenda.

Friday - 60% Chance of Rain - This means no golf tourney / maybe no Travelers Game either??

If it does in fact rain on our festivities, then I will be there
