Not sure where you're located, but I believe Murchison is currently only available in Australia. They seem to be working on US distro, however.

Right now, Rocky Road and Dobinson are the only two I know of that offer lift kits in the US.

Murchison will freight to the US, you've just got to be willing to pay to freight :-), and yes I am in AUS, just wanted to get the info out that the first full lift kit (not just spacers) comes from Aus and you US guys should start looking outside the US for good 4x4 gear ;-), come on Aussie, come on, come on, come on Aussie, come on, come on :-)

I would seriously take a look at the Murchison. It is better designed than the RRO and they have a better reputation. You get what you pay for.

I believe they would I don't really notice, all it does is help keep your vehicle from wondering on the roads. Roads and graded on a 5 percent grade so they allign it to help it travel a straight line, but I've not noticed the difference. I've talked to quite a few people on this forum before purchasing mine one lady had hers for almost 2 years and had no problem with it.

The RRO lift is just spacers on top of the struts/shocks.
The Murchison Products is new longer (slightly heavier rate) springs front and rear and top out plates front and rear (so your struts and shocks don't bang into the top bump stops all the time when fully extended) the ride of the Murchison lift is just a bit firmer than stock (IMHO it is a better feeling ride)
