Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review of the Rough Country three-and-a-half inch Series II lift kit with shocks. This kit is available for all 2007 to 2016 JKs, and there is a version for both the two-door and the four-door. Make sure you get the one that's right for your Wrangler. I recommend this lift kit for anyone who wants to run a 35-inch tire on their JK and doesn't want to break the bank with the lift kit. I like this kit because it's really complete. It has everything that you would need to get the Jeep lifted and back on the road again. It is actually pretty unique because it includes some components that aren't included in other lift kits of the same height. The two main components in a lift kit of this size are of course the springs and the shocks. The springs that are included in this lift will provide three-and-a-half inches of lift to clear 35 inch tires or even bigger depending on your driving situation. The shocks that are included are Rough Country's N2.0 nitrogen charged shocks, which should provide a more comfortable ride than the Performance 2.2s. Also included in this lift and most others of this size are a few other components. Rough Country includes new rear sway bar and links, which are of course longer for the lift. They have you move the factory rear sway bar and links to the front. Again, they're longer and they work better for these lifted springs. They also include bump stops for both the front and the rear, a rear track bar bracket, and brake line relocation brackets for both the front and rear of the Jeep. This lift kit does include some components that aren't included in all other three-and-a-half inch lift kits on the market. Any time you're lifting three-and-a-half inches or more, I always recommend that you do some caster angle and pinion angle correction on the front of the vehicle. The caster will keep you from having that flighty feel on the highway, and the pinion will ensure that you don't have any drive line vibrations in the front of the Jeep. There are a few different ways to accomplish caster and pinion angle correction on your Jeep. One of those being cam bolts, another would be geometry correction brackets, and finally completely replacing the control arms. This kit includes new front lower control arms that are going to give you back both caster and pinion angle. Now these control arms do have a factory style rubber joint on both ends instead of a spherical joint, so you're not going to gain a lot of articulation or movement off road. If that's a concern of yours, you can always upgrade to different control arms down the line. Another component that's included in this kit that's not included in all other kits on the market are these rear coil correction plates. Anytime you're lifting three-and-a-half inches or more without adding new rear control arms to the Jeep, you're going to get a little bit of a bow to the spring. These plates will help to straighten out the spring and make sure that you get a full three and a half inches of lift. The last components that are included in this kit that aren't included in every other kit on the market are this front track bar relocation bracket and drop Pitman arm. If you plan on running those two parts, there's a little bit more information that you should know. Bump steer is caused by having your drag link and track bar out of parallel. It'll show up when you're driving down the highway and you hit a dip or a pothole on the road, and your steering wheel turns all by itself. Running both of these components together will ensure that your drag link and track bar stay parallel and eliminate any chance of having bump steer. A lot of people, myself included, prefer not to run a drop Pitman arm. The drop Pitman arm provides additional leverage in the steering system, which can cause additional steering wheel feedback and wear and tear on steering components. If you decide to run the front track bar relocation bracket included in the kit but you don't want to run the drop Pitman arm, another way to get the drag link and track bar back into parallel is by raising the axle side of the drag link. This can be accomplished with the drag link flip kit available on the website. The installation for this lift kit is going to be similar to most other lift kit installs, but it's a little bit more involved because of some of the additional brackets and hardware that are included in this kit. To get this lift kit installed, you'll have to first support the Jeep from the frame and remove or disconnect everything that keeps the axles from completely drooping. That includes the track bars, sway bar links, brake lines and emergency brake lines, drive shafts and shocks. Once the axles are allowed to completely droop, you can pop out the old springs and shocks and put everything back together with the new components. There is some drilling involved in the installation of the front track bar bracket and the front bump stop extensions. Other than a drill, the only tools you'll need are a regular socket set and wrenches. The whole install should take about six hours, and while there aren't any specialty tools necessary, if you do have access to a lift or air tools, it'll definitely speed things up. If you have an older Jeep that has some rust, you might want to keep your penetrating spray or heat handy to help with those stubborn bolts. Rough Country is known to provide affordable parts and lift kits for your vehicle. While this is one of the less expensive lifts on the website, the components that are included are high quality. It actually has a lot of components that aren't included in other lift kits of the same size. I would say with this lift kit, you get a lot for your money. If you want to run 35 inch tires on your Jeep and you're looking for a complete lift kit at an affordable price, this would give you the lift height you're after and some additional components to correct suspension geometry that aren't included in every other lift kit on the market. That's my review of the Rough Country three-and-a-half inch Series II lift kit with shocks fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

will this lift fit 37s??

  • Hello! With this lift kit we only recommend up to 35 inch tires. Although you may be able to fit slightly larger than that, we only recommend going up to this size because anything larger than that you may run into rubbing issues.

Is it a problem if I don't use the pitman arm

KurtK

  • Hello, we would recommend using the pitman arm so that way It’ll decrease the angle of your drag link, lower bumpsteer that can be caused by installing a suspension lift, and it helps you avoid steering binding.

Will the track bar drop bracket center the axle under the vehicle or do i still need to get a new track bar.

Parker

  • Hello, yes, the track bar drop bracket is set to keep the axle under the original position, so no new track bar is necessary.

    The product shipped quickly from ExtremeTerrain and all items were included. Instructions were perfect and pictures really helped. The installation was completed without hickups. I was shocked at how smooth the ride is, it's better than stock. I didn' do any measurements before install, but this kit provided the lift claimed to fit 35 inch tires, no more/no less. It sits level. I have had 2 other Rough Country lifts on my old TJ and this one is the best yet.

    I removed a 2.5" budget boost and installed this in its place. It took six hours to complete the front end; mostly due to stubborn hardware removal, one run to the auto parts store for the correct pitman arm puller, and I installed the lift by myself. I started on the rear end the second day which only took three hours to complete. This kit gave me the look and ride I was after. The budget boost was okay, but was a rough ride. Other than OEM hardware removal, this was fairly simple to install. The instructions were clear and helpful. I would recommend this kit to my friends.

    Nice lift.

    This is the second Rough Country lift I have purchased for a Jeep. This one was a little more complicated to install. The instructions were not detailed enough. I was missing a whole bag of hardware for the rear installation. I did not have time to contact the company to get replacement hardware. Had to go to a local hardware store and spend more money to get bolts I needed. Overall the lift is good quality and looks good

    Love the LQQK

    I've been wanting to lift my 2012 Wangler but really didn't want to go with the high end costly ones, especially sense it rarely runs off road. When I came across the RC 3.5" I thought it was to good to be true and decided to do my homework...couldn't find a bad review other than some saying it's not good enough for the extremes. Long story short, it came in really quick and only took a weekend to install (while playing family man lol). I added the recommended exhaust extenders, wheel spacers, and duel stabilizer. Put a set of 35"s and can't count compliments I keep getting not to mention how smooth it rides and handles. With the cost and outcome results I'd recommend the lift to fellow "Jeepsters"

    Install this lift on my daughters 2014 JK 2 door. Everything went right on per the instructions, no problems with fitment on anything. Bolt on rear track bar is a little difficult to install. It took a full 12 hours to install but did it all by myself with a little help from her.

    excellent kit

    Installed this kit in a day, goes quite smooth if you are experienced. The on road ride quality is comparable to stock and the off road is exceptional. The articulation overall is very good. I have this kit along with Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 35s and absolutely love it. I would gladly buy this kit again. For the money one of the best I've seen, you will need the exhaust extension if yours is still stock, but doesn't add much more time to installation. I would recommend the rough country steering stabilizer.

    Good lift for the money!

    I installed this lift by myself with no air tools over a couple days. I have never installed a lift before and now I could probably do it in half the time. This is more like a 4.5' lift and my 35s fit with ease. My JK definitely bounces around the road a bit more now but a great lift for the money!

    Great Product for the Money!!

    I installed this in a weekend in a newly built shop WITH NO ELECTRIC yet. Hand tools, jacks, stands, and a few "specialty" tools.... It would have went 2x faster if I had all my air tools up and running. (Yes, this was a huge pain in the butt) All in all went together really good. Everything fit great!! I'm extremely picky and this kit is nice. I installed on a 2008 Rubicon 2 door. The dual stabilizer makes a night and day difference!! (Must have in my opinion) Partly because my factory stabilizer was worn smooth out.... I installed 35" tires on 18" wheels... My only VERY SMALL complaint is that the shocks are pretty stiff. (Again, probably because mine were wore out.) Overall Great Kit that looks and drives great AND gets a lot of compliments!! ;)

    This lift is a great addition! Install was fairly simple, having the right tools helps, and it saves time to go to Advanced and rent certain ones like a Pitman puller! Instructions were fairly simple to follow, although I found a YouTube install video which helped out tremendously. I would highly recommend this lift to anyone that wants a do it yourselfer and wants great performance.
