        great but needs track bar relocation brackets

        The lift went on easily besides some expected stuck bolts. A few months after the lift was put on, the springs started rubbing against the frame and slightly bending the shackles. I also had to replace the u joints after the lift was put on. Other than those minor things, great buy

        4 1993 Wrangler - RLuce Installation Time: Afternoon

        2.5 inch lift

        Looks great install was easy. However, they say no other modifications were necessary. I disagree I need to add a transfer case drop as the slip yoke was out and inch and a half and the angle on the rear driveline was too steep.

        Rc 2.5” lift

        Kit seems to be good quality, rides well for a leaf spring kit. All required hardware was included and instructions were clear. The only thing I would improve is some of the u bolts were slightly to wide to go through the spring plates and had to be slightly bent to fit properly. Overall a very good kit for the money and I would buy it again.

        Great bang for the buck!

        this kit gave my YJ just the right amount of lift for 31's and I cannot believe how much smoother the ride is compared to the stock suspension; the instructions were awful but Youtube has a ton of good vids that help. I would have given it 5 stars but I had to pay extra to order the transfer case drop kit (that comes with the 4" kit for the same price) and new spring eye bolts (trash your old ones, they are probably shot)....All in all, a great budget lift that does what it says it will and will improve your Jeep experience, if you are on the fence about this one (I was) , GET IT, you be happy!

        Very easy to install and looks great and rides nice. Loosen back top bolt on shackles and you can slide the bottom bolt out instead of cutting it. Saves time.

        5 1995 Wrangler - EdwardM Installation Time: Full Day

        Overall happy

        The lift went on pretty easy and fit well. Track bars didn't line up when I was done so I had to buy extensions. Also had to buy longer brake lines but that was probably because of the longer shackles I had already installed. My original springs were flat so with the shackles I probably ended up with 4 to 5 inches of lift. I'm going to try a transfer case drop kit because of driveshaft vibration but am thinking that may not do it.

      If I were to buy this 2.5 inch lift would I need brake line relocation brackets, different/ longer pitman arm, other drive train parts, or anything else? I am mostly concerned about the pitman arm. Thanks

      • With a 2.5 inch lift, it is recommended that brake line relocation brackets are installed. A pitman arm at that height is unnecessary. Drive train parts would not be necessary at that size lift either.

      Is there a way to measure my current leaf springs to determine if I currently have a lift or if its the factory set?

      • There are ways to measure the leaf springs to see if you would have a lift or not. But, the easiest way to tell if there is a lift is to take the Jeep to level ground and measure from the ground to the body of the the jeep. A stock Jeep sits 18" from the ground.

      If I have flat fender flares and this lift kit, will 33 in tires be able to clear? Thanks.

      • Depending on your wheel offset, you should be able to clear 33's with this lift and Flat fenders, however some minor additional trimming may be required, and you will not have full articulation.

      Is this lift good for off roading ?

      • The Rough Country 2.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit will work well in off road situations and will allow you to fit up to a 32" tire

      What does full articulation mean??? I'm trying to pick the right lift for my yj n don't know what it means......

      • Hello, Axle articulation is vertical wheel travel – as in, how far the axle can move up and down relative to the chassis. Articulation is what allows the vehicle keep all four tires in contact with the ground on rough terrain, which provides better stability and allows the vehicle to maintain traction. On a solid axle vehicle like a Jeep, as one side of the axle is forced up, the opposite side is pushed down as the suspension conforms to the terrain so that maximum traction and stability is maintained. It is one of the most important factors in determining if a vehicle can get over an obstacle.
