Need imput on lift kit choice

Anyone running Rough Country 6" X-series Suspension lift or know anyone who has. I am planning on running 35in tires and putting a yoke slip and extending the rear drive shaft as recomended. Thanks for the help

i would be careful with RC, read up on reviews and know your pros and cons, if you are looking for a good Hybrid lift check out Rokmen.com nice, durable kits, put together by people who know what they are doing. With lifts you get what you pay for it seems

dunno anyone running that setup....but i have the 4" RC and love it..keep in mind what you're planning to do is gonna cost you some $$$...dunno what kind of axles you have and what kind of wheelin' you're gonna be doin but might wanna look into new ones...gonna have to change them gears and the speedometer gear and maybe get some lockers...use the search function..you'll find a ridiculous amount of incredibly informative information

x2 with the 4" RC. In fact I ripped the LCA bushings up after 2yrs of twisting the heck out of it on the rocks! I called Rough Country to order new ones and they sent me FREE ones no questions asked!

I had the 2 1/2 rancho rockcrawler lift and that was ok. I wanted to run bigger tires so I went with the fabtech 4 ultimate lift and love it. I also added fabtechs rear cv driveshaft for the rubicon and the lift rides like factory I love it very nice package

A 6" RC lift on Short Arms, will be a rough ride. Your better off with a 4" kit and and maybe adding a 1"BL for clearing 35's. Thats the typical way most people run 35's

Scout turned me off completely to the RC lifts, PM him about it, or buy a kit from Rokmen.com, or better yet call rokmen

i actually just spoke with a rep for RC and they said they can do the 4" lift (shipped) for $499. Basically you get free shipping. I also talked to them about there lower CA bushings and he told me the company that was making them for RC no longer does. They were letting air get into their bushing molds, causing weak spots letting them tear and split and fall apart. They have a new complany that makes them and he said the issue is resolved.

Tell me how that 4" RC works out. Wanting to add some more lift to mine. Sitting on a 2.5" with 31's. Might be ordering one for me after hearing that price.
