Looks good

How do you like the Rubicon lift? How is the ride, soft, hard??

Looks real nice man! I was going to go with that same kit before I decided to do a spring over. Flexxed it very much? Doesn't look like you have a ton of room, but I'm sure some TJ flares would open that right up. Good luck man!

Re: before & after pics RE 4.5 lift

i love it!! ride as good as stock if not better and flex great, i have only had it out on the trail 1 time since put this lift on and it was real mild stuff but i did put it up on some rocks to see how it would flex and it did great, and yes my back tires rubed the flares a little bit but new flares are next on the list, i will get some pics of it flexing soon.

I love it...Glad to hear you are happy so far. I have the same lift ordered and on the way for my CJ7. Looks great. Thanks for the pics. Also found the whole installation for this system in the Tech dept at Shortwheelbase.com

Re: before & after pics RE 4.5 lift

yea i actually gained about 5 inches of lift and that is with the hardtop on, i did have to get the slip yoke eleminator and a cv driveshaft to take care of the increased angles but it was well worth it. heres another pic, cant see the jeep to good but its a nice picture.

check out my website for some more pics @ www.mindspring.com/~dnhhess
