Rubicon Express 3.5

hey guys new to the forum. I have a 97 Wrangler and was wanting a 4 inch lift. I found a used one on craigs list with 20k miles on it. It's a Rubicon Express 3.5 superflex lift. only thing it doesnt come with is the swaybar disconnects.
It retails for $920 on Rubicons web site. He wants $400 for it. I'd try to get it for less. Good deal or should i stay away? Don't know too much about lifts yet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

My last lift was the RE 3.5" lift. I liked it for a short arm lift. But like jerryj, I am now running a 5.5" long arm kit. It works alot better in the big rocks.

1st nobody pays retail anymore. 2nd how long did he have the kit installed? Be sure to check the condidtion of the rubber bushings as well as the super joints. Also if they are Adj control arms, I don't think they are, check to make sure you can undo the lock nut.
