Rough Country Flex

Hi, i just got a 93 wrangler.(new to all the wrangler modding) it has a 2" body lift and the guy gave me some 1and1/4" shackles for the front and rear. I am wondering how much more flex does the rough country 4" lift have compared to stock? A lot more? a little? Thank you. Planning on off roading a lot...

Personally, I think the RC lift has a great amount of flex. I don't really do the go fast stuff so my trail stuff is pretty much 1st or 2nd gear.





This last pic is next to an XJ with about 8" lift and 33s. I am on 4" with 31s

I have the 4 inch RC on my 95 YJ with a 1inch body lift and I have NO problems with it It is a little stiff riding but when I want to do some twisting It goes where I want It to. For the money Its a safe bet.

Just an afterthought. If you do decide to go with the RC lift, do not go extra for the nitrogen shocks. I started with them and they were a bit bouncy, even after a couple thousand miles. Switched to hydraulic shocks and the ride is much better.

so do you guys think the RC is a lot better than the stock suspension for off roading?

I have a 2.5 inch RC lift on my 92 YJ. For the money it is great and it handles better off road than on road. All and all I like it.
just my 2 cents

I love my RC lift. Rides better off road than stock, on road, I have a little more body roll, but that is because I have removed the front and rear track bars. If you leave the track bars installed, it kind of has a go cart feel to it. I like the sway I get now. I just don't drive it agressivly.
