Lift kits

I I know this has been discussed several times but I'm getting ready to lift my jeep and was wondering if anybody has an opinion on the rough country 4 in lift with the military wrap springs ?? I know all the bad about the old springs but are the new ones any better ?? Thanks in advance

The new ones are just that. New. So they haven't withstood the test of time yet. Most people still have a bad taste in their mouth because of what they have heard about and experienced with RC. Supposedly they are a lot better now, but who knows. You could take a chance and be a 'test subject', or you could save a little more and go with something that you know is good like BDS or RE. Your call, but I'm actually saving up for a good lift myself. Good luck.

I kinda like the Dick Cepek 3 1/2" lift, came with EVERYTHING needed, I only wish it had a SYE and CV Driveshaft instead of Tcase drop...

My springs come Military wrapped, and have had ZERO issues in the 7 years I have been running them.

I have run rancho, rough country, and currently old man emu which has been the best so far.

The down fall they are more expensive and only come in a 2.5" lift. Pro's excellent quality and one of the few systems you can choose spring based upon weights of the jeep and also the shocks work great.

I am running a 2 year old RC 4" lift with no issues.

Had a bad spring in the first month took pictures and measurements one e mail one phone call new spring on my doorstep 3 days later.

The new one looks good so it shouldn't be an issue.

Have ridden the trails in JKs and TJs but not another YJ so as far as rough or smooth ride in mine no experience to compare to.

We beat this question up about every two months.

Your Jeep make it yours and have fun. Parts are parts.
89 2.5 TBI, 4" RC lift, 1" Booms, SYE, Adams Driveshafts front and rear, Ford 8.8 with 4:88s, BFG 33X12.50X15, and a ton of other stuff.
