New 3.25 Rough Country Lift and 33's!

This is my first post, but I recently bought a 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport in great condition. When I bought it, it was stock with 31's. I just got my lift finished along with new 33 inch BFG Mud Terrains. Looks awesome! Heres some before and after pictures.

I have the same tire size and lift. If you wheel in off camber situations and have sway bar disconnects then you need to invest in a 1" body lift. I rubbed inside both front fender wells and where the fender and jeep meet on the inside, bent that a little. Didn't hurt anything but my body lift is in the mail. Also doing a tummy tuck too.

Sold me. Im calling RC to buy mine tomorrow when I get paid! Woohoo! Did you get a good deal on them or pay listed price? This is the lift with the coil spacers, eh?

Also, does anyone have this lift with 33x10.5's?

Very nice. I have a similar lift. I went the 2.5" suspension + 1.25" body instead of the 2.5" suspension + .75" spacer.

Most places ive found are all about the same, around $400. I found it for around $360 on a website but by the time they ship it to you, you're paying more than $400.

Mention the word "jeep forum discount" and you get 10% off the entire order whatever that might be.

That'd look great, my brother has the same lift and 32's but I think 33's are a great upgrade. And I'd like to know more about that discount too!

You can get 10% off the lift itself, not the entire order, if you give them a call.

Well they sure wouldn't give me 10% off my steering stabilizer, track bar relocation bracket, or sway bar disconnects when I ordered everything. The Guy said it only applied to the lift kit itself.

Ouch. I never had to argue with anyone about the discount.

All I know is it's a 3.25 rough country lift. It has the .75 coil spacers on it also.

I have this same lift and added an adjustable front track bar also.

Got mine from here http://www.xtremeterrain.com/ asked for free shipping and they gave it to me.

They have it now for $370 and free shipping.

You'll want to grab some extended sway bar disconnects and rear track car relocation kit I believe. Atleast that's what I added to my RC 2.5" + 1.25" combo kit.

Don't forget to add 2" bumpstop extensions front and rear to keep the shocks from bottoming out and keep the 33" tires off the steel body.
