Rock Krawler vs other lift kits

I am now looking for lift kit for my jeep. I do not know much about wheeling, this is my first Jeep and I do like to take it offraod every chance I get. I am looking for a 2.5" lift. Rock Krawler and Poly Performance are considerably more expensive than many others I have seen. Are they really worth it? Do I get more stuff for the price or just way better quality?
I drive an 4 door JK unlimited X with the 3.73 gears and stock 28" tires which I want to upgrade to 33" tires. Also, should I go to 4.10 gears or will I be fine with the stock 3.73 gears. I do, and plan to do more, moderate wheeling, and camping / hunting,
Any advice would be appreciated,
Thanks,
JNV

lift

take my advice, dont buy cheap, you get what you pay for!!!! Poly and rock krawler are excelent and they support this site! rock krawlers new 2.5" kit looks great. again my opinion{you know what thats worth} get the kit with control arms and track bar and everything else, you will want it and need it before long! good luck and have fun.

gears

3.73 with a standard would be ok, but if you go to bigger than 33"[which you probably will] than 4.56 or 4.88 are a good choice.

You cannot go wrong with either one of those choices. Yes they are more expensive but tougher than woodpecker lips. Once you get them in your hand you will see the difference. Customer service is great on both and you can search all day and not find anything bad about them.

Spend the money once and do it right.

With all the overthinking and research you cannot go wrong with Rock Krawler Poly or Teraflex. All great companies with great products and customer service. Call them directly and talk to them to find out what the companies think. You can also see how well they will respond to your questions and problems. I went with Rock Krawler and Jeremy at Rock Krawler has been a great resource.

ENJOY

Someone else makes lifts?
















The best 2 riding JKs I have ever been in is my 5.5" RK long arm.

And my wifes with spacers and my old 4dr springs

I think RK and Poly are setting the benchmark for riding, performing non-gimmic lifts.

Haven't ridden in a jeep with Poly lift but many seem to love it. I personally love my RK lift and would definitely buy it again.

Make sure you are comparing apples to apples when researching.

I am finding that we often come in a little more expensive than the rest when comparing complete kits because we are including more/differnt components. You can go to our site and build a specific kit that includes all the parts you want if you don't see a system that is layed out the way you want. Feel free to call my direct line if you have an specific questions.

don't forget AEV - its a good kit for those who spend the majority of their time onroad and don't go too hard offroad.

ex: RHD JK 2dr CRD auto
now: RHD JK 2dr Rubicon 3.8 6spd
