Used RC 4" Lift

Sorry this is gonna be a long one.

What's your opinion on buying slightly used lifts? I've come across the ability to buy one for $175.

It is roughly 6 months old, never seen dirt. Was installed, then WJ was sold and new owner took lift off and restored to stock height. Includes dual steering stabilizer.


Here is a pic of the lift kit:


Here is a comparison pic from RC site for their 4"


A couple things:

-Between the two pictures, everything is almost accounted for

-I plan on lifting mine the next time she needs new shoes.

-I've been reading some reviews and it appears as though people just say to get the X-series because it's more complete and better for only $250 more. I looked at what was different between the regular and x-series and it's three things:

1. lower adjustable control arms $179
2. sway-bar quick disconnects $60
3. adjustable track rod instead of track rod brackets $129

So hypothetically, if I purchased these three items and the 4" regular lift for $175, it would be about $543 plus shipping instead of $750 plus shipping. I'm thinking my plan is to buy the lift, and then save up and buy each one of the three items as I save money.


Thoughts?

Crap. It was sold before I could get to it.
