I did a lot of reading and second guessing myself on which lift kit to buy, particularly because I was on a limited budget and there are so many opinions out there. But most of the less expensive (intentionally not saying cheap) kits seemed to require add-ons that quickly pushed the prices up. I chose the Rancho 4" Sport kit with RS9000 shocks because, well it's Rancho, and it came with braided front brake lines, the adjustable front track bar and geometry brackets. I actually ordered this kit from one vendor, but was seriously let down with shipping and availability promises. I reached out to the Rancho rep here on the forum and he pointed me to Northridge4x4. They took care of me immediately and I had the kit in about a week. It came with great instructions and quality parts. I wasn't disappointed. Everything went together without a fuss in about 5 hours at my brother's shop. His lift certainly helped, but I feel like this could have been done in my driveway if I hadn't had the option. I had one snafu with one shock that was missing it's hardware. Customer service at Northridge had the parts to me within a couple days. The only caution I suggest is to do a thorough inventory of all parts as soon as it arrives in case anything is awry. I combined it with 315/70R17 BFG KO's on the factory wheels, 1.5" Spidertrax wheel spacers, Synergy adjustable rear sway bar links and a Rancho RS7000MT steering stabilizer and I couldn't be happier. My 2013 JKU is quite literally exactly as I wanted it from the day I bought it. Of course that will only last as long as my wife's memory about the money and time I spent before the next modification is underway... Thanks Rancho and Northridge!
