ive seen the 2.5' lift and seems to hold up pretty well, but then i saw this on RC website. has anybody installed this lift, and if so, how well does it perform? my thinking is you get what you pay for, but i figure i would get some input from the guys here.
I have the same lift and it works good but, the shocks are junk, you might want a adjustable track bar, stock steering stabalizer is junk, might want quick disconnects. Now that I know what I do I would spend the extra money for a better more complete lift. I just got the jeep and wanted it lifted fast. Myself, I am just going to piece together the lift i want and dont mind spending the extra money or time. And you will want to get some extended brake lines
Look at the newer 4inch longarm from RC its badass, I run this lift with coil spacers on 35s.I had the older 4 inch shortarm from RC didnt like i so good off or onroad.This newer kit surprised me quality parts and good manners off and onroad.
man i just had the 4" put on a few months back and i cant complain. it flexs nice for a short arm kit. u should get an upgraded steering stabilizer when u order the kit tho, will be much nicer! but cant really complain much about it. i mostly crawl and stuff wid mine and aint let me down yet.
when all else fails, lock it up, balls to the wall
4" RC lift, 2" body, 35x12.50x15 MT baja claws on MT classics(soon to be black/alum. powder coated), full underside skidded, sway bar discos, extra rev. lights, rrc cross over steering, rebuilt tranny at 57,000
its an obsession, not a passion.
the passion is the feeling of bein free when ur out in the middle of no where
ok might be a nubbie question but what are the disconnects for? how offen do you use them?
Depends on what kind of offroading you do. You really dont need quick disconnects, just saves some time instead of unbolting them everytime. They disconnect your sway bar to give you more articulation (more tire on the ground, not floating in the air). If I am rock crawling, take them off everytime.
it's a complete kit to get you lifted and room for 33s.
the coils are good.
the basic shocks are stiff.
the lower control arms are beefy, but have no flex joint...look into reinforcing your lower control arm axle mounts
everything else is good for what it is. you can upgrade as you go.
Trust me you'll love the newer longarm kit from RC you cant beat it! Nice flex joints adj tracbars nice shocks and a comfortable ride.The shortarm is a ok lift for the money, but in time you'll want something different something more comfortable,the longarm was a simple instaal also.
