    Will this fit a 2000 Tj 4 cylinder?

    BillyN

    • Yes this Rough Country 3.25 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Premium N2.0 Shocks will work, but it is made for the 6 cylinder. Due to the weight difference, the lift may not provide the same lift amount as one rated for your 4 cylinder.

    • The Rough Country 3.25 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Premium N2.0 Shocks is a complete kit and Rough Country does not suggest any other additional parts with this kit.

    I bought this kit and installed it onto my 2004 TJ. i just read the description again and it says 97-02. Will I run into any major problems in the future?

    JohnL

    • I would recommend getting a transfer case drop from an 03-06 TJ, to make sure your drive line vibrations is taken care of. Since the earlier TJ had a different transfer case skid plate.

    I've never done a lift before. I am decently skill with mechanics and have done some moderate work to my jeep. I'm just wondering if this is something a person with no experience could handle doing in their driveway. Also, is there anything else I would need to acquire along with this besides any necessary tools.

    Tyler

    • The Rough Country 3.25 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Premium N2.0 Shocks is a pretty straight forward install. This kit would come with all the parts needed for installation, however compressing springs can be dangerous. I would recommend looking at this install guide https://lib.extremeterrain.com/guides/J10311_Guide.pdf and see if this would be something you would be able to install your self.

    • The Rough Country 3.25 in. Suspension Lift Kit is designed specifically for the 4.0L equipped Wranglers, and would not work with 2.5L Wranglers.

    We already have this lift on our '01 TJ with a 1" body lift and 6" pocket fender flares. Currently running 33-12.5 Goodyear Duratrac on 15x8 Mammoth rims but wondering whether or not 35's would fit or would we need more clearance?

    Al94GT

    • With the Rough Country 3.25 in. Suspension Lift Kit and a 1 inch body lift combining for 4.25" of lift, you should have enough clearance for 35's.

      Get what you paid for...

      I'm a Helicopter mechanic and I know hard installs, but this... this took somewhere around 8-10 hours (3 days) to install in a shop with all the tools and a lift. bolts wouldn't line up, had the wrong hardware and had to go buy some, the hardware bags weren't labeled with the part so I had to guess what went where even with the instructions. I had to bend the rear shock mount out and then beat up the shocks to actually get them to line up correctly. The instructions were clear, but the pictures aren't helpful neither is the parts list and figure. Correct tools wouldn't fit in to areas that they needed to. All in all not worth the head ache. Just spend the money and get a good brand.

      Good product for the money

      Bought this lift for my 99 Sahara and while it does look good it does sag alittle in the front, however I have a heavy bumper and a whinch so for a stock TJ this would be 5 stars.

      Straight forward

      Kit had everything needed and was pretty simple to install. Having access to a full shop did cut the time down considerably. After a few adjustments to the alignment we had the jeep going down the road at about 5 hours to install.

      As promised.

      The kit had everything you need to lift your jeep. Did it over a few evenings with my son. now his jeep is as awesome as mine. One tip, be sure the bolt that connects the front sway bar to the suspension is tight. the standard jeep bolt is a little too small to keep it tight. It is one possible location that can cause death wobble.

      3.25 lift kit

      It took about 7 hours to complete the job by myself in my shop. Directions were fairly good. I would recommend this for a part time offroader. Also made sense to change track bar and steering stabilizer. Was very pleased with performance at high speed highway. Put new 31 x 10.5" wide TA's on and it tracks very well. Unlike my daughters 33 x 12" which wander everywhere on a much more expensive 4" kit.

      Rough country 3.25 in. Lift kit w/shocks

      My 16 year old son and I recently purchased the 3.25 in. Rough Country Lift Kit w/shocks and installed the kit on his 2001 Jeep Wrangler. This was our first ever installation of a lift kit. The instructions were simple and easy to follow. The install took us longer because of rusted bolts in which a few broke off. Other than that, it wasn't a bad job at all. What should have taken us 4-5 hours took about 8 hours because of the rusted bolts and the few that broke off in the frame.

      Incredible!!

      My lift kit was delivered about 7pm on a Friday night. I had it completely done, working by myself, by Saturday afternoon. I didn't use a spring compressor but if I had one it would have went that much quicker. I learned a trick from installing another lift kit to remove the front control arm bolts where they attach to the frame to help get some clearance for installing the front springs. That helps drop the axle a little lower. A trick for the rear is to remove the sway bar links and the old shocks since you replace them anyway and leave them off until after you have installed the springs. (Be sure NOT to over extend brake lines or breather tubes.) This allows the rear axle to swing quite a ways down. Also, when the axle is at it's lowest it is the easiest to relocate the new track bar bracket. Be sure to soak all bolts with some penetrating oil such as PB Blaster a few times before hand to help loosen the bolts when you install the kit. My Jeep looks awesome and still rides well. We took it out 4 wheeling and didn't have any problems with tire rubbing or off camber situations. This kit is incredible! Good value for the money IMO.

      Easy to install. Simple instructions included and available on the web. If you don't own a coil spring compressor, borrow one. It'll make the job much easier. Looks great on my tj. I also bought the adjustable trac bar.

      RC 3.25in TJ Lift

      Great lift for the price. I installed a few weeks ago with the help of a friend and we managed to get it done in one late night. Like many other reviewers say, the ride is more stiff than OEM, but it's a Jeep. I would recommend installing an adjustable track bar at the same time to avoid drilling another hole into the bracket. Also clears my new 32s no problem. Overall, worth the price if you're looking for a lift on a budget.
