TJ Long Arm Lifts
Alright, once again I've tried the search and come up empty. Looking for 'TJ Lift' gets a large response, but mostly for 2 and 3" kits. Long arm's aren't even mentioned really until going back to posts from 2000. But since then there have been MANY kits released. I just can't seem to find a resource online that compares the technical details/differences between each kit out there. I can't stand the thought of spending $3000 (Canadian!) without knowing I'm getting the best kit available for the application.
So... Here's a post (the first that I could find) specifically about TJ long arm lifts.
I'm in the market for a 6" lift.
When I called my local shop to talk lifts, the guy there was saying that fabtech's 6", and rubicon express' 6" were the best around (even though they sell pretty much all of them). He prefered fabtech's. He sited the fact that their kit's arms will bolt to the factory axle mounts, without the use of any 'extentions'. He said that he used one of the other kits on his personal Jeep and it had extentions off of the axle mounts, and proved to generate excess leverage and actually broke the factory mounts off the axle. Anybody else find this to happen?
Also he said that skyjacker's heim ends wear very fast and cost a lot to replace...
Here are the kits that I'm aware of:
Fabtech, PLUS: Arms mount directly to axle
Rubicon Express, PLUS: Arms mount directly to axle?
Skyjacker, DIS: Fast wear on heim ends
Full Traction, ???
Does anyone have any specific plus's or dis's for these kits and any other kits available?
