what is the better brand for a 91 explorer...I found a deal on a 4" rough country suspension lift with rear leafs and all shocks for $775 is it any good?

Rough country is crap, so is rancho, trailmaster and all the cheap brands. they use a bracket that basicly lowers the stock one and the result is the top of your pumpkin can slam into it and only bad things happen from there. get a quaility kit like skyjacker BDS or James Duff. they cost alot but there worth it if you want to wheel the truck.

yep, talk to GNU_42 here, hes had a few rough country lifts in his rangers and they rode worse than my buddies 84 1ton chev. Skyjacker or BDS are the top choices.

Hey, Ive got a 4-6 inch skyjacker stage II lift, very pleased with it, cheaping out on the lifts is not a good idea, James Duff also makes some pretty good parts.
