Rusty\'s 3.5\" CJ lift?

Anybody running this lift, or know someone who is? Any feedback positive or negative. A friend of ours has a stock '76 CJ7 304-T150-D20 - he is looking to go to 33x12.5 MT tires. He is considering this lift (mainly because of the low price $420 including shocks, and the fact that he is happy with his Rusty's 3" XJ lift). Rusty's told him he wouldn't need a drop pitman arm or transfer case lowering kit. I find that hard to believe considering we needed a drop pitman arm for our 3" black diamond lift.

Anyway, opinion/comments would be appreciated.

Re: Rusty\'s 3.5\" CJ lift?

Rusty has kinda shady business practices, sometimes he's great and other times his service is great. has some cheep lifts that have shocks along w/ think jeep. You will probably need a drop pitman arm and brake lines for a 4" lift and maybe a t-case drop though drive shaft extensinsons arn't that expensive.
