i have an 06 wrangler tj x model with the 6 speed manual transmission and i have been looking at long arm lift kits...i dont want to have to do an exhaust modification when install the lift...does anybody know of a long arm lift kit that doesn't require exhaust modifications??? (cuz every long arm lift kit i look at requires exhaust modifications)
Rubicon Express Long Arm (NOT the triangulated one if you don't want to mod the exhaust)
Latest generation TeraFlex long-arm
Clayton Off-Road long arm
All are good kits - Clayton's IMO is the nicest, but requires welding, followed by teraflex - very modular, cheap, and sturdy (unlike the first generations - this one has massive heims and bushings, and 1.75" DOM tubing), then the RE - a very popular choice, with it's weakness at the adjusting thread (only an issue if you wheel hard)
Yeah - but remember that this only replaces the lowers, and doesn't include a replacement skid (which is good - this means you can use your own design, or a flat skid and are not stuck with a propietary design); you'll want to replace the uppers as well; you can get the latest generation teraflex from SummitRacing for about 800 bucks. With new uppers it'd be around 1200, 1400 if you go for a fancy upper control arm solution.
that includes everything??? wow, thats really cheap...now, that is a 4 inch long arm lift kit that includes everything to lift it(except maybe shocks) right???...oh and "1BLKJP", do you have any experience with rock krawler???..is rock krawler any good??

Yes, I have a lot of experience with RK products. I currently only run their steering, but have numerous friends running their LA kits (I have also installed them) and it handles great on the street and performs awesome off road. Their pricing for these products is also very competitive with any other LA lift kit. They are complete with everything you need to install (including shocks)
You might hear some negativity relating to some very old RK products, but that is way old news and is of no concern to their currents products under the current ownership.

Take a look at Rock Krawler. Their LA suspension doesn't require any modifications to the exhaust. And they use solid stock also not tubing.
Correction. The RockKrawler 5.5 X-Factor kit comes 2 ways, One of them is with LONG rear uppers which, requires an exhaust modification, but you can also order it with SHORT rear uppers, in which case, there is no exhaust mods required. The good part is, when your warranty is up, is you decide you want to, the long uppers will go right in!!!!
