JK and TJ are quite different when it comes to lifts... The RC lifts are horrible for the JK.

This is the ONLY one that has any positive reviews:

3.5in Suspension Lift Kit for 07-15 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited [609S] | Rough Country Suspension Systems®

It's still cheap with cheap shocks, etc... However, it does come with caster correction and the rest of the appropriate parts to put it together.

You need exhaust spacers for a '13.
You need a programmer for the tire size.

You could add a steering stabilizer, but it's not needed.
You could add an adjustable track bar, but that kit has a front bracket so it's not needed.

I would add a grade 8 bolt kit.

Added the RE relocate steering stabilizer, Adjustable track bar instead of dropped pitman arm and relocate track bar bracket.

Superchips Flashpaq Works wonders fixed the throttle lag and the thing has come alive.

There you go! How about a ride report? What do you like or don't like? How was the installation, did you do it yourself?

Install was pretty simple maybe 4 hours with the help from my son. I am not new to suspension work.

Ride is good. A little softer than stock. Do not like how they use the rear sway bar links for the front. Not a huge issue since they will be replaced with QD links soon. Alignment was really close after install. He said rear was dead on straight. Went on a 22 mile offroad trip last weekend and the jeep worked excellent.
