Got the lift installed

It's an RE 3.5" SuperFlex with 33x12.5 Xterrains.
Needs some fine tuning and an alignment but I do like it.

Re: Got the lift installed

Looks Great!!! Did the lift fit right in or was there some modifications that had to be made? I heard that the regular lifts for the TJs will not work on the Rubi. Or is that a kit made for the Rubi?

And I do hate you!! That is one great looking ride. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: Got the lift installed

Wow, that looks really nice! My friend's boss has a Ruby that he wants to lift to run 33s. We are thinking of using the same lift as you did. Are you happy with it? Any pros or cons? Any tips you can give us? Thanks.

Currently, trying to get the Warn tire carrier installed. They changed the carrier and it doesn't fit the bumper.
I just got a Warn M8000 but need a front bumper to mount it to. So researching that.
Will eventually upgrade to the long arm kit, as well as the Airock air bag system.

The kit fit fine. They did have to modify the long arm kit for the Rubicon, and it should be ready in the next few weeks.

I really like the lift. I do wish I had ordered the adjustable upper control arms. I will upgrade to the long arm kit eventually.
You will need a right angle drill to make it easier to install. The instructions say you need a 9/16th drill bit, but you don't so save your money. It is a misprint, it should be a 5/16th bit.
Install the rear cam bolts before installing the rear coils (unleass you are replacing the upper control arms)
The instructions really suck, but it is not a difficult install.
Let me know if you have any questions as you are installing.
