|Creeper||Well I emailed RC and BDS with my jeeps model and year and specs. Waiting for a response from both. I am honestly leaning towards Rough Country. It just looks like better quality to me. I am not picking sides though. I'm sure both are quality lifts. Just my opinion so far. The guy installing my lift apparently is an avid mechanic and swears up and down on skyjacker but it honestly looks like a shit kit and i hear nothing but bad about it. So i'm not listening to him. Lol|

Here's the one I decided on for my Jeep: 3" TJ Suspension System
Good luck with your shopping.

1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ.75" lift kit 415H | BDS Suspension
Click the 3" link
I was seriously looking into this before making my own lift. It is extremely complete, has very well balanced shocks for up/down travel, about 4.5" both ways. Comes with front and rear swaybar links, the front disconnects are very nice from what I've read, some say they are the best.
BDS also has a lifetime "No BS" warranty where if something breaks they replace it without questions. I don't know how well they actually hold up to that though. Do a little research and you'll see little to nothing negative said about BDS lifts.
Couple this 3" SL with a 1" BL (if you end up needing it or not, this lift comes with 2" BS which should let you run 33s with 3" without a problem, you might be able to shave 0.5" off the bumpstops and still not have clearance problems, at least not with the shocks) and you'll have a sweet setup and some extra change for other goodies

|MikalCarbine||I'm still saying stick with the BDS 3", it's about $800, quality, lifetime warranty and you'll have money to spare. RC is crap|

|GoldenSahara00||Sure, but its rough country. I have heard that have gotten better quality lately but have not seen it. I saw a black jk with a rough county lift that looked pretty nice the other day, and I say If you dont plan on going to crazy, go for it.|

I think I may have found the one. I mean, I'll probably be looking for the rest of this week as I'm waiting for my paycheck to arrive, but this one seems reasonable and I've read quite a few good things about rough country.
So here's what i plan on adding to this kit (at the bottom of the page) The NP231 SYE,
steering stabilizer, and the perf 2.2 shock upgrade. Think that this will suit me well?

Just because the kit runs $1200 dose not mean its a good kit your paying for a name trust me . For $1200 you can have a good lift with a sye .
All lifts are going to have there up's and downs

|GoldenSahara00||wish I didnt type so slow|
|02-12-2011 11:14 PM|
you probably NEED sye with the procomp lift
jeep offroad is probably right about them being good, Ive never owned one of their lifts so I can not comment, only what I have heard. which we all know what that means.

|Creeper||The problem with that pro-comp kit is i dont see a tcase lowering option... what would i do about that?|
|02-12-2011 11:01 PM|
|02-12-2011 11:00 PM|
Ive heard the quote "stay away from anything that says procomp" too many times. but if its your first kit, I wouldnt blow a bunch of money on it. just like you dont buy a porshe as your first car. you buy a beater than save some money. you get my point.
And true, but you can easily offroad with a stock jeep :P
|02-12-2011 10:51 PM|
|Creeper||I'm not a serious offroader "yet" :P Think about it, how many people are serious offroaders when they are buying their first lift! Give me a chance|
|02-12-2011 10:49 PM|
Okay, what is your opinions on this kit for my situation :P

Tcase drop only affects how high the case is off the ground, but not the actually lift of the rest of the vehicle. So for people who do mostly trails and mud, and dont get stuff up under the jeep much, a tcase drop isnt as bad as it would be for a rock crawler, right?
creeper I would take a look at the zone kits, and save the rest of your money until you learn a little more about all the stuff need to do a proper lift. Wait to RE to get back in business (they are only shut down temp from what I hear) then purchase the lift you were looking at. or better yet since your not a serious offroader, invest the money in something else.
zone is made by bds

|Creeper||thank you az for your time and opinions. this is really helping me. I will continue looking and if i find a kit i feel is suitable i will message you and get your opinion. if you dont mind :P|
|02-12-2011 10:32 PM|
Why pay $800+ for a 4" lift when it's only 3"? That's all I'm saying.
In all honesty Creeper, get any 3" lift that has a t-case drop included as well as lower control arms and you should be good to go.
|02-12-2011 10:28 PM|
I really have no clue what to do. I get convinced on a lift kit and then someone says something that demolishes my hopes and dreams lol. Honestly i just need someone to send me somewhere that has a lift kit with everything i need for my 2003 jeep wrangler sahara to go from stock. To be able to put the 33 12.50 bfg with 15x10 ultra 164 model matte black wheels on and drive back and forth to work and do minimal offroading occasionally. For a reasonable price (being around $1,200 to $1,500ish)
I have already ordered the wheels and tires so this is going to be happening soonish. That is why I'm so consistent with this lol.

|Jeepoffroad04||ya that is true about RE sorry bud. but if i was you and dont do a whole lot of off roading then t-case drop is the way to go aztj seems to think everyone is a hardcore offroader that 1" is going to make a hell uva difference|
