I am looking at 4" lift kits for my YJ. Is there a substancial difference in say....rubicon lift versus rough country? I know the price is higher.....Just curious if in the long run I will be better off spending the extra for the rubicon? Actually the rubicon is 4.5" with about $700 price difference. If the rubicon is gonna make my ride better....I would go for it. Thx again for any info on this matter.

Maybe try for an answer over at the YJ forum?

Here's the "lift review" thread from the YJ fo: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f8/yj-lift-reviews-25156.html
Thx for the reply, I was thinking alot of guys ran lifts of all kinds on all kinds of jeeps. Thats why I came here.. Oh well....NP at all.....I shoulda stayed on the YJ forum I reckon.....Tooooooo Late though LOL I just purchased the 4.5" rubicon extreme for $850 +$100 Shipping from ebay. I believe it will be a better lift......They say ..."you get what you pay for" Thats what i was thinking on these lifts...... Now on to a soft top....and I will be ready to go to work dressing my YJ up some...Thx again man. Appreciate ya.:wavey:

There is a difference based on brand (from what I have read on the forum) but it all comes down to what your willing to spend, I would rather spend a few extra bucks to get the better quality then pay for it later, I'm also looking into the 4.5" extreme duty rubicon express kit cause it has everything i need (old owner didn't manage the jeep well so need to replace a few extra things). Let me know if this helps you out, and the guy was right, the yj lift reviews help me too on making a decision.

It was one a guy crashed his jeep and had it new in the box...never got to put it on......I paid $840 + $100 Shipping. PM AOR here on the forum.....He will beat that $1129......I was gonna buy one from him if I hadn't won this one.....Good luck.
