4" currie short arm tj lift reviews??

Have been searching around for lifts for my 04 rubicon. I think I finally found the lift I want. 4" currie short arm with all adjustable Johnny joint control arms. Any one running this lift? Pros, cons? Would love to see some pics if anyone is running this lift with 33's. Prob run it with bilistein shocks also. Good choice? Pretty much a weekend warrior I have a company vehicle that I drive to work and back but I would like this to drive as nice as possible. Thanks for the help. Don't have money for a long arm but will most likely eventually upgrade later on. Thanks for the help!!

I would say you've found an excellent lift, congratulations. The only suggestion I would make is to possibly look into the Savvy/Currie lift over at Savvy Offroad: Savvy Offroad They have the same kits but have improved them slightly by giving you the choice of steel or aluminum control arms, double adjustable arms or standard adjustable arms, etc...

Also, look at getting the JJ kit for the front axle side bushings. They really help tighten up the front end.

Other than that, you can't go wrong with what you're looking at getting. It's an amazing lift, you won't be disappointed. You'll love having JJs at each end of the control arms. They make a huge difference.

Yep, they also make lower double adjustable ones as well.

And make sure you call up Gerald at Savvy when you go to order; he can work out the best pricing for you.

Awsome thanks guys. So the double adjustable arms mean u don't have to take them of to adjust? And yes def getting the Johnny joint arms. Any pics with this lift and 33's. I was so close to getting the RE 4.5 super flex but heard how horrible the control arm bushings are. So now I'm pretty sure I'm going with currie. I want to buy a lift this week! Snows going to coming soon I need to be prepared haha. I just want to make sure there is more than enough room for 33's and ton of flex. I was gonna run the re 4.5 with 33's. I like the look with plenty of room to flex. Also I'll prob be running 33x 10.50's. Like that skinny tire look and better for mud! Thanks!!

I can post some pics tonight if you wish, but trust me you can fit 33s without issue. Add a small BL and 35s are easily run.

Yes the double adjustable arms let you adjust them without removing an end. Normal arms require you remove one end of the arm, adjust it, and then reinstall it. It's not really a big problem, just one extra step. The double adjustable arms eliminate that step. plus they make it stupidly easy to set your pinion angles.

Not sure if I ever come across a negative review on this lift, aside from cost...

Ya it is pricey. I wanted to do a 4" lift with shocks for 2grand but it looks like I'm going to spend that on the lift alone. O well I have ran rough country lifts before and they are garbage. You get what you pay for in my opinion. So this time I want to spend the extra bucks and have a nice reliable jeep.
