Thoughts on the new RC 3.5inch lift....

I am looking into getting a new lift kit for my 4 door sahara, and the RC was recommended for an everyday driver and once inawhile offroad. But I've have seen a lot of mixed opinions on RC. I need some more opinions from actual owners please

not sure about the 3.5. I just did the 2.5 i'm happy. i liked the way it was pckaged and the install was a breeze. the zone 3.5 kit looks good for the money also

i've heard a couple complaints about coil sag with R/C i just went with the 2.5 spacer kit to avoid the issues with drive lines ,control arms, alignment ect. i think if i go bigger i would do the AEV or rockfather

Yea it seems a lot of people run into sag problems

And to other response, it will be my daily driver and I currently have 33x12.5 tires. Keeping those and would like to do mud mainly and a little rock. Just a basic offroad use

i would think a good 2.5 kit would probably be the way to go. less headaches with steering,driveline and castor issues. Just my .02
good luck with your choice theres enough mods out there for the JK to keep you busy for a long time

Sure, what would you like to know? We have just had guys come to us saying they have X lift and has added front and rear bumpers, winch etc and now there 2-3" lift is sitting back at stock height! So, we have been swaping out coils on them to get there lift back.
