|slf41002||A lot of people can't get used to the sensitivity of the steering on such a short wheel based vehicle and misstake it for road wonder but anytime you lift a jeep that allready has a high center of gravity it is bound to have a little more body roll.|

The two biggest problems with the RC kit.
1. The drop pitman arm - Don't use it the factory pitman arm is fine for this lift.
2, The drop track-bar bracket - Don't use it get an adjustable track-bar.

So did you lift your Jeep or did you have it done for you? If you paid for the install, maybe the shop can find out where they messed up. Or if you installed it, go back and check everything. After a couple of days of driving to and from work, I was able to tighten up all of the bolts and nuts. That made a lot of difference. What about your steering stabilizer? Is it the stock part or aftermarket?
One thing to consider is the angle of your drag link compared to the angle of your axle...the greater the angle, the more sensitive your steering might be.
Then again, you shouldn't need a drop pitman arm for that size lift.

I have the same lift and wheels as you and I do experience a small amount of wonder. I bought my Jeep already lifted, so I cannot compare it to how it drove in stock condition.
Do you have a drop down backet that is connecting your stock trac bar? I did and that was a big problem. I removed the drop down bracket and purchased an adjustable trac bar to get it back into factory position. Once I did this, I removed the stabilizer bar that was connected from the frame to that bracket, it was no longer needed. I think this was one problem with the Rough Country lift that was installed on my Jeep. I'm not sure if they still include that bracket in the lift package, my lift is several years old. Once I made that adjustment, my steering and control change a good bit.

I have the same jeep as you with the same lift, and same size tires. Throw some pics up.
BTW Welcome to WF
P.S. Make sure you have sway bars connected

99 Jeep Wrangler TJ Newly Lifted
I just lifted my 99 Jeep Wrangler with a 4" Rough COuntry Suspension Lift and mounted 33x12x50s. Before I lifted it, it wondered the road a little, but since the lift it is ALOT WORSE. I've had my wheels & tires balanced and aligned, etc. What else could be the problem? and what could be the solution to correct this problem? Thanks!
