Buy an angle grinder. Cut off any bolts/nuts that you can afford to replace.

great for the buck!

just installed the 4" lift with the boomerang shackles, SS brake lines, new nut and bolt kit for springs and u-bolts, got the 25 dollar upgrade on shocks.. go right to roughcountry.com and order from them direct.. same price as ebay anyways... also got the steering box brace and some other odds and ends..

Over all... i love the lift, but like any arched spring you buy from any company the break in period is very stiff and rough.. but off road, it flexes very well and is a great kit for a budget build.

hope this helped your decision making process!!

Same as above. I ditched the track bars about a week after the install. I love mine. Great on road and off. The on road ride actually improved after the lift. Had weak springs before.

I had a 4in skyjacker lift that came factory with the jeep. Once i replaced it with the rough country lift my ride improved tremendously. Everything is a lot tighter and it is great on an off road. would def recommend it. i also opted for the upgraded shocks for an extra 25 and the upgraded stabilizer for another 25.
