    I have the 4 inch on my Yj and Yeti is runnin the 4.5 inch on his XJ and we think they are great. I heard a lot of people say Rough Country is pretty stiff ride but they are our play veichles so we really dont notice any drop in comfort and the prices are great.

    sounds good to me, dont care too much about stiff ride as long as the flex is good. It's a cheap way to get started with the height I want to be at, can always upgrade CA bushings to heim joints. With 6" and my 1"BL I'll fit 35's with room to stuff.

    Its hard to judge flex in my Yj since its leaf spring but the front(coil spring) on Yetis cowbeast has some sick flex- I was suprised.

    I can not say anything for their springs, because I have 3.5" RE springs. But I have their adjustable control arms. I have yet to have a problem with them. The do have a lot a grease fittings in them, which is a good thing.

    ran the 4" ROugh Country on my TJ. the 4" with a 1" BL will be pleanty for 35's. To make it a little better and level you can remove the stock 3/4" isolaters from the front, move them to the rear, and replace the front with 1.75" Poly spacers......This combo above and I ran 36's

    I don't have any input, but here is an article about it. They have an install and test section that very kit. My only input would be why not a long arm kit?
