Well after a lengthy weekend of turning wrenches some beer and some swearing I got my new lift on. I have a 2006 rubicon and installed a 3.5 inch RK x factor lift with OME shocks, a tom woods shaft and 33x12.5x15 duratracs on unique 297 rims. Since the lift didnt come with bump stopsAs i added 2 inches front and rear, from rough measurements this should work but I'll found out for sure once i get offroad. I got some mild vibrations at first, but i turned my rear uppers out 6 more turns and things seem to be good right now. The ride is still a bit rough but much much better then stock. Takes potholes better then stock and corners tighter.
no this kit still keeps the 5 link in the rear, replaces the control arms and relocates rear track bar.
Also if have read reviews they say this kit is beefy, that is not a lie. The arms are completely solid and the bushings are huge.
As far as upgrading, I would have preferred a new rear track bar instead of just a bracket, also i would have liked them to include bumpstops, but they don't know what size tires or shocks the customer is using so i dont blame them.
I wouldn't be looking at this paricular lift cuz the wife really wants a xk.so when we get her xk it will get a lift so I have been researching the few companies that make xk lifts and so its between rustys and rk. So thank you for your input
