Need Help. 6inch lift with 35s

My 2000 tj has a 2 inch suspension and 3inch body lift that i am replacing. I've been searching for a 6inch to fit my 35s. Would love feedback on this lift. Thanks http://www.jeep4x4center.com/jeep-li...n-lift-kit.htm

hey man that was the kit i was initially interested in as well til i was talked out of it on various homework edevours

i was pretty much told i wouldnt be happy so i opted with a 4" suspension and 2" body lift to clear mine.

although nobody liked that idea either but i have done it before and was happy many moons ago so im going to do it again.

look at lift reviews as much as humanly possible
in a nutshell going 6" suspension you dont want short arms tho

Yea I've heard that too, but honestly I haven't been off road in forever. Transmission and engine can't handle it. I just know the 6 inch will look better and that's the only one I can afford

Dude honestly, if you can't afford to do the lift properly then I don't think you are in a postion to run 35's safely. Stick with what you have until you can do it, you will regret that RC lift.....

you don't really "need" 6 inches to run 35's, unless you just want 6 inches. I run Currie 4" progressive rate rear springs, RC 4" front with .75 spacer and trimmed 1" off front flares. No rubbing anywhere. 35's on 15x10's. Of course things like hardtop, heavy bumper etc., impact amount of lift

I already have 35 inch bfgs on it. I'm not going to be offroading, if i do it is rade. It's been through a lot of repairs and transmission problems. I want it too look better than the 3inch body does, and increase the value for trade in/sell in the future. I don't feel that I need the top of the line equipment, I want to fit my tires with no rub and without body lift.

I'd go 4" max suspension lift plus a 1" body lift... most bang for the buck & is perfect for 35" tires. 6" is too tall & just unnecessarily raises the Jeep's center-of-gravity.

You were trying to dump this one for a JK in your other thread, you arent going to wheel it so why in the hell do you need 35's? For your purposes that RC lift linked earlier should do you fine, pick any inch BL you like. as far as seeing the BL, can you see mine?

Already have the 35s. Took it offroad at first but not so much now. Decided to keep it instead of trading in, I'm pretty attatched to it and ill wait for something new when I graduate college. Yours is 4 inch and 1 inch body?

I find it funny that as soon as Rough country is mentioned all the folks start the bashing because they read something somewhere. I know there are alot of folks out there that are very happy with their rough country lifts and I am one of them. If this is going to be mostly a road vehicle go with the short arm and be done. I did the long arm because I use mine for both. Yes the expensive kits will be higher quality, but if your not doing extreme wheeling, you dont need it. My two cents.

You're equating price with quality?

Some people have direct experience. If you also had comparative experience, you probably wouldn't recommend most of their products.

RC is doing so very well and with their reputation I feel they sure they will soon be on the shelves in the automotive section at your local Wal-Mart . Look else where for safety and quality .

Rough Country isn't quality and anyone who supports their lift as good or decent quality knows no better.

RC is a joke, their springs are too stiff their joints fail and their shocks are garbage.

IMO X amount of lift style kits are a joke. spend some time doing your homework do it right once with the best parts you can afford.
