Elwood I had the 4" X-factor long arm on my last TJ. Had it for about 20k miles. As for the height, I have no idea. My 4" came in very close to 4 actual inches of lift.

How long have you had this lift or do you know someone with this lift??? also does it sit higher than the actual 5.5?

Elwood It would be close. After the install, if you do, it isn't a big deal to install bump stops.

I have read both reviews and both seem to be excellent lift kits.I am leaning towards the RK lift kit. if you have either lift i would appreciate your input (pros and cons) thanks.

just4fun My buddy has a 5.5 rk and loves it and he has a 1"bl to help clear his 37s. He has loves it he just don't like the sway bar disco which he plans on changing. Mine is a 6" rc long arm that I like just not the shocks and the cheap rubber bushings.
