This is my first lift kit, but it went ok. Had to ditch the rear track bar as it would not line up after the kit, and the lift was not 2.5 but instead 4 inches, thus messing up the drive line angles and now I must buy shims to make up for it. I've yet to drive with it on yet, but getting it on was not bad for a novice. Recommend getting some PB blaster or some fluid to help loosen the bolts that are likely rusted solid into place.

lift kit review
Took me 12+ hours to install but it wasn't complicated. To remove the sway bar links use a ball joint press to push the top out.

Perfect Leveling Kit
Super easy to install. I bought a tool to install these torsion keys with, but did not need it as these were Very simple to install.
It Took all of about 20 minutes to install just the keys, that is including jack up the front of the truck and setting back down on jack stands so the front tires were off the ground, which takes ALL the pressure off of the torsion bar itself. I got a True 2 1/2 inch lift to the front, the shock extenders only took about 15 minutes per side to install. Afterwards, just drove down and had an alignment done... Sweet ride now...

Nice kit, quality pieces
The kithing is easy to put on and ride is not changed. The bolts supplied for lower portion of shock are to long and hit on bump stop. Only got 2 inches of lift not 2.5.

Did what I wanted
Tried it on the trail today and it did what I wanted higher ground clearance, Would be easy to install if the kit had the right bolts for the rear kit. I had to purchase 6 additional bolts to make the kit work on my 2008 Wrangler. I also put on disconnect sway bar links. The instructions say you don't need additional partsbut that is not true, You need an adjustable track bar or your front axle will be offset from the lift, I like the kit but was not happy that it cost me an additional $15.00 for hardware and then the track bar which they say you don't need. It also took longer to install since I had to make 2 trips to the store for the correct bolts. overall I'm happy with it.

Great kit for the money
This kits gives you a good lift so you can clear 32" tires. It is a little stiff of a ride but worth it, it just looks great. Easy to install. I didn't get instructions, but I was able to download form 4 wheel parts website. The only thing else you need to buy to complete this kit is a transfer case drop down kit for the rear drive shaft . They should have that as part of the kit.

Quality is nice BUT,
1.The front brake line brackets don't work due to lack of upper brake line.
2. The supplied brake line bracket bolts were bigger then the oem hole, had to drill out for the rear brackets that fit unlike the front.
2. Rear spring spacer bolts were not threaded all the way, had to buy new bolts.
3. Rear shock spacer bolts were fine thread (1.25), had to buy new bolts (1.5).
After a couple of runs to the store for bolts the installation was simple and as stated above the quality is very nice for the price. Only thing I think missing from the instructions is to disconnect the parking brake lines from the bracket under the jeep before dropping the axle and reconnect after. I didn't do this and had to adjust the parking brake after since they locked up.

I wish I had more information on install
after installing "kit" I found the driveshaft had an extreme angle... when on a lift the yoke was hitting, you could not rotate the tire, had to lower transfer case and put shims under axel, I really wasn't expecting to do all this with a 2 1/2 inch lift. this must be a problem for every jeep that this is installed in, company should tell you this so you don't have to tear it apart again

Worth the price
The lift so far is great for the price. I have not ran into any problems with it and install was really easy for some with no experience what so ever with lift kits, plus I only had half the tools and a hay bel lift Haha. But for 4 and some change really couldn't beat it. I mainly purchased it because the original suspension was 18 years old and nearly bottomed out.
But that's my little piece, it's worth it if your not a huge mudding fan but hit the trail a little and if your on a budget. Plus a Jeep looks a lot better with a little lift.
I have a 95 jeep wrangler stock.
want to install 17" wheels and tire from newer jeep. Tires 31 x 10.5
If I use wheel adaptors 4.5 x 5 to 5 x 5 and install the trail Master 2.5 lift w NGS shocks.
Will this work and will I run into any issues?
