more suspention lift questions?

I've been looking around for a 6" lift for my 03 rubicon.
I've looked at rough country, fabtech, skyjacker, ect. and every one claims to have the best lift. I'm curious to see what you guys would have to say about the lifts you have and what you like and don't like about them....I've looked for hours on reviews and can't seem to find hardly any. So far I'm looking into the rough country because of the price butI don't want to replace it after a year. let me know what you guys think. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: more suspension lift questions?

Price does not always dictate quality. A good example is the RE kits that are made from other manufacturers products. And the shipping markup is part of the profit. I think it is a personal opinion as a friend of mine has a Rough Country lift and it rides smooth. I just bought a Genuine Steel lift for my YJ and I only paid $332 for it and it is a Pro Comp kit that sells for about $600 but just does not have the name on the box. It flexes great and it does not rattle your teeth when on the road. Just remember the first part of the suspension system is your tires.

Re: more suspension lift questions?

I have the 4.5" Rubicon Express Long Arm, love it. Works great off road, and corners great in the street. It comes with a new heavy flat belly pan. Not your Saturday afternoon project though.

But -- as always there's a negative. Windsteer. I think it's because the rear trackbar is at too much of an angle.

If I was to do it again, I'd do it again.

Re: come on

Lots of lifted CJs and YJs... maybe not so many TJs.

If you have lots of budget you might want to talk to skooly79cj, here are a couple of pictures of his Rubicon.

almost every TJ I see at the hammers has an RE suspension under it.
