Anyone have this RC lift?

Here is the lift that I am thinking of going with on a 2010 Sahara Unlimited. Does anyone have any experience with it?

Jeep JK Wrangler Suspension Lift

Any accessories or add-ons recommended for it?

Thanks.

I do I do. make sure it is installed correctly add exteneded brake lines they will say you don't need them but trust me. Add stablizer and trac bar, add shocks then you should be ok.

So in other words, you need to add quite a bit to make it right. Not such a deal then.

And when your springs sag below their advertised lift height after a year or so, really not a good deal.

I had the 4 inch kit and regretted it the whole time I owned it! Death wobble from non adjustable front control arms and blown shocks in the first 3 months. Pulled it out and installed a BDS 6.5 inch with the Fox shocks adn have never looked back!

I had the 4" version of that lift. I both rear shocks blew in less then a year and it had some bad shimmies.

Swapped springs out for RK 3.5" springs and bilstein 5100 shocks and added a synergy drag link flip and it now drives like it should. I pretty much replace almost everything that came with the lift.
it now rides smooth and steering is vastly improved with the flip kit

When it was all working it wasn't half bad but the stuff didn't hold up long enough.
