Well the SYE is a great idea on any TJ lift over 4". With 6" of lift I will guess you looking to run at least 35's upto 37's??? Give us some more details about your plans.. as for the 6" RC lift.. the new stuff seems to be better than the old stuff, but still to new to tell.. 6" on a short arm with out drop brackets seems like too much to me though..

I belive RC is coming out with a long arm lift in August. Maybe you should wait a month.

Well I have 35's on the jeep now but I really wanna go 37's possibly might just stay with the 35's to flex out a little more...Im not a big wheeler so im not beating the piss out of it and I have a RC lift 4" and I liked it alot but than again I never had another lift so maybe I just dont know what a "good lift" feels like

6" inch lift with only having Short Arms could be a harsh ride as well as a harsh angle for the Driveshafts.

So are you doing a 6" lift because you want a really unstable, crappy riding Jeep? If you're trying to make room for bigger tires, and do it as cheap as possible, you know saw blades are a lot cheaper than a lift right?

I would probably think about this a little more if I were you.

You guys are amazing you honestly think that a 6' short arm kit is going to be that bad!?!?
How is it going to be "unstable" or a "crappy ride"?? Are you thinking at all cause I just think ur being an idiot talking about using saw blades..No need to be ruthless, next time just keep ur 2cents to urself than

Last time I checked its a jeep so its not going to be riding like a caddy

I think he means that with 6" of lift and short arms, it's not going to be as smooth.
The arms will be at a pretty sharp angle especially for short arms, thus will most likely equal a rougher ride.

Your beginning post clearly states

I don't want to sound like a jerk, and i realize its a jeep so it won't ride great, but if you have to go the high, at least go long arms... control arm angles:


what do you think will ride better?

I ran close 6.5" of lift on short arms in the front. RE 4.5 with 2" spacers to clear 35's. These where also mounted on 60's. Anyway.. you need to really dial in everything. Also plan to upgrade the steering, I had the currie unit. It was a mix on how it drove. If things got out of wack from wheeling then it could be a PITA on the street. If I had to do it over again, I would have gone long arm and 39's.Which would have opened a whole new set of issues..LOL

When you do anything really over 4" lift your riding on the front of your tires. Not down in the middle because your control arms go extremely steep. They will make the steering touchy on the road and you will feel everything. With the way your jeep is setup now if you went long arms on your 4in did some cutting in your fender wells you can fit 37's and not be up another 2 inches. When you start getting that tall the center of gravity goes from being pretty high to being at the top of your roll bar. That will make your jeep kind of unstable at 60 mph. If you look at it the other way you have a 4in lift and I would rather spent the money on a highline kit and then you could toss 40's under it on 4in of lift along with flex it all the way out too. I would not go anything bigger then a 4.5in lift really.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

If you don't want opinions, don't ask for them. And don't call people names when they give them. It's bad form.

Since this Jeep is just going to chauffeur you to the mall and back, build it as high as you want.
