Can this be used on a 97 Tj w/ a 4cyl?

  • Yes, this Rough Country 2.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Performance 2.2 Shocks can be used with your 4 cylinder, but the springs are weighted for the 6 cylinder engine, so your Jeep may be incorrectly in comparison to springs rated for your engine.

does any one make an air suspension system that will work with this lift kit? I have an air system already installed on my stock 2000 suspension. I just had one of the air bags develop a leak. before I simply replace it I would like to ad the extra ground clearance that a kit like this would afford me. However I'd hate to discard the air system since it's already installed and otherwise operational. any thoughts?

  • At this time we do not offer any air suspension kits that would be compatible with lifts.

    Stop reading the reviews and buy it

    This lift made my jeep look super aggressive and I love it. Just be prepared to spend some time with your Jeep in order to install this lift. Its a fairly simple install but if your jeep is like mine (2002), you will run into problems with rust and things that do not want to come off, no matter how much you cry. Overall worth my money, time and tears!

    perfect lift

    This gave my jeep the lift I needed. Install wasn't horrible but definitely takes two people if your just using basic hand tools working on a garage floor.

    Perfect - for our TJ

    The kit pieces all work well together; gives our TJ just the right stance and clearance that we were looking for. The ride quality has improved 100, feels like a new Jeep!

    98 TJ RC 2.5

    I went with this lift because my 98 TJ was riding on all stock suspension with 158K on the clock. Shocks wee really shot and it was sitting lower than my buddies stock 97. I also have 3.07 gears and a 4" RC lift with 35's isn't an option until I get gears. My jeep came up 3-3.5 inches and rides really smooth without all the mushy flopping from side to side. I'm very pleased with the RC 2.5 kit., until I get gears and can put 35's on my jeep.

    Surprise ride.

    Installed this new 2 1/2" lift kit with gas filled shocks on my son's '05 Wrangler with the anticipation of a stiffer ride as a result of the increased lift. Much to my surprise and satisfaction the ride was actually a little smoother and the handling much better! Super product which I highly recommend. Great price point too!

    Great price and product

    Great product and price. The springs went on with a spring compressor for struts. The one for a jeep won't work. So if you are going to rent one get the right one. Took about four hours with a break for dinner.

    Easy installation

    It took me and a friend 3-4 hours to install, mainly to rusted bolts.I would make sure that you have a spring compressor, makes the job go easier. Just the right look and stance I wanted. I would fully recommend this product.

    Great looking jeep with my new lift.

    Couldn't be happier with the way my jeep looks after the lift kit was put in.Handles well on and off the road.Looking forward to adding taller tires.
