Default 98 xj rough country 6.5 short arm?

Hey guys i currently own a 97 tj and am trading for a 98 xj this Friday! I cant wait however the xj has a 6.5 rough country short arm kit. I have read numerous bad things about this lift. I am not even sure why they would sell something like this if all the things i have heard are true! I have no plans of any wheeling with this rig, yet! This will be a daily driver will this lift be a problem? I have a company car for work so it will just be a weekend toy

Dont worry about it because of what people said. You can find good stuff all over the internet about them too.

Get it, look it over. Test drive it and see how it goes.

that makes me feel a little better! He just recently put the lift on and said he can cruise 70 with no vibration

If its done right.

Its always easier to find/hear about the bad stuff.

example: Someone eats a big mac and a roach is in it, thats 1 out of millions and everyone hears about it.

The other 3,242,124 people had good ones and know one says a thing.
