Sweet looking Jeep! which Rough Country did you purchase? (theres the basic one, then the X series i think)
i went with the x series and the rough country dual stabilizers as well as the addco rear sway bar. goes sweet down the road and with the sway bar unhooked it gets me places i should not be going lol

I had thought about the X series, but i then saw the Zone lift. is there a reason you went with the Rough Country as apposed to Zone?

i wasnt a huge fan of bracketing things downward. but then again, thats just my thoughts. im no engineer! lol

Re: my wj build.... wooot!

The only bracket that is important is the spacer for the rear control arm. I get no vibrations at all

Im kinda paranoid about lifting it. ive heard good and bad about every lift kit. sorry for the questions. I also heard that 4" is too much on short arms for some Jeeps. i just wanted first hand input before i based my opinion, know what i mean? lol

i understand. it rode alot nicer when it was stock for sure but with the 4 inch lift it still goes down the road well. I will most likely long arm it in the future but this is my first lift ive ever owned. Im happy with it. i have a 1 year old and she doesnt mind the ride either.

one last question, if you dont mind, what type of front driveshaft do you have? that is my biggest concern as i have the Rezeppa-Rezeppa shaft in the front. I had thought about getting both yokes off of a ZJ and getting the DS from it also, and replacing my darned front driveshaft.

Re: my wj build.... wooot!

i have the stock one with the cv shaft right now, i dont see why everyone says you have to swap it. it doesnt give any vibrations but on the highway i hear a slight whine. i will swap the double cardon shaft in someday just busy with work and stuff now so i havent had the time
