4" rough country lift
 
Thanks for the tips on the lift i've decided to go with the rough country lift here's the link:

i was checkin it out and looking at other kits to. would i need to do any mods to make the jeep still ride smooth on normal highway conditions? longer control arms? or would i need to drop anything besides the transfer case?

If you have to get that kit, buy an adjustable front track bar. Do not use the drop pitman arm. Do not use the front drop track bar bracket.
This kit is not very good, the design of it causes bump steer. and the track bar relocation brackets must be absolutly tight and constantly rechecked to avoid death wobble. The shocks are extremely stiff and you will be wanting to replace them soon after the install.

yup i've heard terrible things about the shocks...

and are you sure you can't get it cheaper on the rough country website? its the same price but maybe the shipping wouldn't be $84

Keep shopping. There are better kits out there.

doesn't make much sense to me to have sway bar links in a kit, that aren't disconnects. but i guess people put on a lift, and 33" tires, and never wheel it, thats the only way that makes sense

:banghead:I have the rough country lift. I agree about the adjustable trac bar, but not about the drop pitman arm. I installed mine with the drop pitman and had bump steer until I got an adjustable trac bar. Now it is fine, no bump steer. I have had no issues with the lift AT ALL. It rides a little stiffer that stock, but that doesn't bother me, it is a Jeep if I wanted a soft girly ride I would drive a Lincoln or a Caddy, but thats me

I hear ya brother. :D I have that lift too. I been replacing parts of it whenever I can. The only thing left is the springs, shocks and rear track bar relocation bracket. The shocks don't bother me until I get off road. Then they stiffen up and ride like a brick on a cobble stone driveway. The springs may be a little stiff, but have not settled at all.
