    Review & Installation 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.

    Kit Includes. The Rough Country 3.5-inch Series II Suspension Lift Kit has front and rear lifted coil springs, N2.0 shocks, track bar drop brackets, front fixed lower control arms, pitman arm, rear coil correction plates, and extended sway bar links. This kit also includes the necessary hardware required for the setup.

    Functionality. Increase the ground clearance of your vehicle for smooth off-road ride with this Jeep Wrangler JK lift kit. It lets you fit larger tires to your vehicle. Coil correction plates adjust the angle of the rear coil by 10 degree allowing it to function more efficiently. Rubber bushings in the lower control arms efficiently absorb vibration and offer wobble-free travel. The jeep suspension lift kit levels the front and rear of your vehicle for improved highway as well as off-road performance.

    Fitment. The Rough Country 3.5-inch Series II Suspension Lift Kit fits 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK models.

    Note: Exhaust spacer kit J12153 required with this lift on 2012-2018 JK

    I'm interested in buying this to start my first ever jeep build but I was told that if I lift my jeep 3.5" that I'm going to have to worry about driveline vibrations and bending axles. Is that true? or if I buy this kit will I be able to take it right back onto the road.

    AidanH

    • Hello, At 3.5 inch you do start getting into drive line modification territory. This being said this 3.5 inch series 2 kit from rough country does have all the necessary relocation brackets to help bring your suspension geometry back to stock. You will need an exhaust spacer if installing this kit on a 2012 or newer wrangler though. As far as bending an axle, I highly doubt you need to worry about that. Only through mistreatment of the jeep would you bend your axle. This kit will get you back on the road in no time with a mean new look.

    With this 3.5" lift and running 35 inch tires will my jeep need to re-geared and if so what's the recommended ratio

    BobbyR

    • Using the Rough Country 3.5 in. Series II Lift Kit will not require any re-gearing, however when running 35" tires, we recommend replacing your gears to a minimum of 3.73:1 however 4.10:1 gears would be ideal to compensate for the taller tires.

    Why is this lift so much cheaper than other lifts out there

    HovsepK

    • This Rough Country 3.5 in. Series II Lift Kit w/ Shocks is well priced due the material used, compared to the other higher quality lifts we carry like: Teraflex and Rock Crawler.

    Do you recommend Front Control Arm Geometry Correction Brackets with this lift?

    JordanC

    • The "Rough Country 3.5 in. Series II Lift Kit w/ Shocks (07-17 Wrangler JK 4 Door)" will not require Front Control Arm Geometry Correction Brackets, since this kit comes with its own front control arms.

    With this kit will I need extended brake lines on my 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?

    ColinM

    • The Rough Country 3.5 in. Series II Lift Kit includes brake line drop brackets, instead of new brake lines. If you off road often, getting longer break lines would be suggested instead of using the drop brackets.

    Ok,so now that I bought this lift kit I’m worried that the factory front driveshaft will work .Do I need to replace this with an aftermarket one or will the factory one work?

    ThomasF

    • Your driveshafts will work fine with this Rough Country 3.5 in. Series II Lift Kit w/ Shocks. On the JKUs, once you hit above 4" of lift will be when you need to look at swapping out your driveshafts.

      Great Lifted Look

      The product came complete and instructions were easy to follow but without a total jeep lift, the process had to be complete in individual segments per wheel, so I would prefer using a garage quality vehicle lift. Added a great look the vehicle, making room for 37inch tires.

      Great lift for the Price

      This lift took me, just me no help, 12 hours total. I didn't use the front brake line relocate kit, because it seems to pull the plastic hose way to much. I have plenty of slack, but I do suggest a brake line extension kit. Make sure you have a pitman puller. Battery impact helps. Overall, great lift, nice ride, quality parts.

      You get what you pay for

      I was going back and forth between this and the Rubicon Express 3.5" lift for my JKU. Honestly, the kit is good, there is a lot lacking in the instructions and it requires more than just normal tools. The longest time was spent just getting the front taken apart, make sure you have a good pitman arm puller or you're gonna run into problems. The rear only took about an hour to do. The suspension is a lot better than stock but could be better. All the parts are good quality but if I were to do this over, I would have gone with the Rubicon Express, they have better shocks. Started at 1:30pm and ended at 09:45pm

      Right lift kit for the price.

      I glad I didn't break the bank when I order, I left me with some extra cash to get the trackbar, I took me 1 and a half day to install on my driveway, with the help of my dad, mostly, due to the rainy weather and also the fact that my Jeep is almost 4 years old, it took me a while to get the pitman arm out of the tiderod, so I just decided to get a new one from autozone, ($27) got it 2 days later, so before doing anything, make sure you are able to get it our, otherwise, the rest is just following the steps. I also strongly recommend watching the RC Youtube vide several times to make it easey, I'm no mechanic, but I was able to do it, anyone with basic tools can do it, I did buy a 33mm socket and and a pitman arm puller in advance, recommended by other, otherwise it would have taken longer, also, make sure you have 2 extra swaybar link bolts, as the stock ones use the bolt at the bottom and the top has a bushing, the sway bars links that come with the kit require a bolt on top and one on the bottom, so I used front bolts on the back and purchased 2 new one. over all I'm very happy with it, after the alignment was done, I rides a lot smother the stock. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

      2018 JKU

      I lifted my 2018 JKU Sahara and added 35x12.5 BFGoodrich Mud Terrains. The stance is aggressive and solid. The ride quality did change from stock but it doesn’t necessarily transfer through the steering wheel. The 3.5 inch lift on 35’s is classic but noticeable without being ridiculous. The instructions leave a little something to be desired. Other than that, I would highly recommend this kit.

      Great Lift

      This lift looks great and rides just as well as the stock suspension. I do not plan on doing a ton of wheeling, so I cannot speak to the off road capability, but on road it's great and it makes the Jeep look the way it's suppose to. My friend who works on cars on the side installed the lift for me and it took a little longer than he anticipated (approx 7/8 hours) as he said the instructions were poorly laid out, but other than that, no complaints.
