The "new" Jeep Cherokee KL has a complicated suspension system.
The zero tolerance camber adjustment means that lift height has to be moderate in order to keep the alignment within factory specs. Additionally, due to the complexity of the lower control arm assembly it is very costly to replace.
As a result we've had to focus on ride quality and handling as opposed to pure, unadulterated lift height. The spring rate is about 10% higher than the factory springs to handle some additional weight, like winches, roof racks, and gear. The ride quality and handling are noticeably sharper with the new components.
We've partnered with Dobinsons springs, out of Australia to manufacture high quality replacement parts that do not require any modifications to the vehicle to work. Simply remove the factory components and replace with the new parts. Read below for a deeper history on Dobinsons components.
Our Jeep Cherokee Lift kit will be a challenge for alignment on NON-Trailhawk Jeeps, but is workable if you follow the strut assembly instructions in our installation manual.
Be aware, Rocky Road is THE ONLY company which supplies installation instructions for the Dobinson lift kit. The... Only... Instructions.
Buying from elsewhere, gets you nothing. Having these instructions for your installer can save a good hour or so of install time, which is an excellent way to keep your overall cost down for lifting your Jeep.

The Dobinson KL lift kit does not come with any installation instructions, but Rocky Road has done the work of producing a complete installation manual for the KL lift system. The instructions are only available with a purchase of the KL lift from Rocky Road (we unfortunately cannot email them out without a purchase).
No other 4x4 shop that sells the KL lift kits can or will provide installation instructions for you.
Our installation manual will save you time and money for the install, as well as help to avoid installation errors from making guesses instead of having correct information.
NOTE: Instructions are only available with a purchase and can not be emailed
