Rugged Ridge lift kit?

It says 2.5-3.5 in lift. I have a Barricade bumper but no winch yet so I am guessing I will be on the higher side.
Are the shocks any good? There are no reviews on either of these kits on Extreme Terrain.
The Rancho 2 Inch sport lift with 9000 adjustables but no rear springs just rear pucks and front springs is less money and has great shocks.
What are your thoughts or experience with Rugged Ridge lifts?

If you're looking for a 2.5" lift, Teraflex, AEV, or Rubicon Express would be a better choice over RR. RR isn't really a suspension company.

Unless you really must go through the learning pains, go with one of the lift kits mentioned above or RockKrawler. It's better to install a spacer lift than a low quality coil lift.

The Rancho rebate is around the Corner. Many have installed rear coils in place of the spacers.
As far as RR, I have no experience.

I ran their shocks for a while and they leave a lot to be desired. I say a quality lift like the Rancho, Teraflex, Rock Krawler, Rubicon Express, OME...and with th 2 door JK, I would recommend a 2.5" lift.

I sell all the above (including Rugged Ridge). Feel free to PM me.

These. Although I'd avoid the spacer lift, personally. Not that Spinlock's advice is bad––I'm just anti-spacer lift.
