Rough Country lift done today

Did the 4 inch RC lift on my 95 wrangler today. It went on easy. Air impact wrench paid for itself today. I just couldn't get the pitman arm off. Tried the the puller with heat and a hammer with WD40...wont budge. I'm going to have to let it set for a day and try again tomorrow.

@Redjeep: I hope to get some pics up in a week or so. Just remember the TJ and YJ have two completely different suspensions.

@CMud: I thought the install was fairly easy. I did order extra nuts and bolts so I didn't have to reuse some of my originals. The ride is....more firm or bumpy than stock. But then again it's Jeep not a Lincoln. I think it's a good lift for the price and what I plan to do with it. PM me any questions you have.

@Wasomma: Thanks, got it off. I cut it a bit and then used the pitman puller and off it came.

So far after first day, I really enjoy the lift with 33inch tires. I've lost some power but not that bad. If I want speed I ride my motorcycle (zx12R). It's not my DD so the firmer ride is ok. I just hope my springs don't sag much over time.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

For anyone interested. I took the jeep offroad today and my 33's rub the rear plastic fenders. I'll have to trim off the bottom corners an inch or so. So far the stock gearing in my automatic is pretty good. It runs 70-75 on the freeway (don't need to drive freeway much). It does take off slower but I'm not in a race, when I drive the jeep its leisure time.

My 31s rub the rear plastic fenders on full flex. I am not too concerned since the fender flairs are flexible plastic and so far have taken the little bit of punishment I have given them.
