Rusty's offroad

Hey all,
I am looking at different lift options and I have seen many pro's and con's to all of them i have looked at. However, I do not think I have seen anyone's review on the Rusty's offroad 4" lift. Has anyone used this lift, are there draw backs, is it a good set-up? Any info good or bad will be taken into consideration when I go to actually buying my lift.

Here is the link if you want to look:

I used a Rusty's lift on a Grand Wagoneer I had it was great it flexed good and never sagged which is a common problem with Waggy's. I've never used any of they're YJ stuff but they have good products.

From what I've seen people compare it to that of rough country. Decent lift for the price.

That was kind of my first impression, and I know that Rusty's has good stuff and stuff for builders. I just want some feed back from someone who may have used it. Guess I may be a trailblazer here. I will post a build up with photo's after I get it done.

I have the exact lift you are looking at. It was well worn in when I got the Jeep but I've wheeled the balls of my Jeep and this suspension has held up to my expectations. Front doesn't flex much due to my sway bar but the rear actually flexes into my fender wells and bends them about an inch or two into themselves. Very impressed for as nasty as the bushings and shocks look on it, the performance is still top notch. Good investment. I'm going to probably buy the same one here in a few months to replace all my suspension parts just to be on the safe side because I have faith in it but i'd rather be safe than sorry. All in all, great product. Just take care of your bushings and shocks and grease up everything that needs it and you'll be good as gold.

oh and random question, is the top of the piston of the shock supposed to be mounted at the top of the wheel well or down at the bottom near the axle? I think the PO may have made a big boo boo.

Sweet! Now all I need to do is find someone that has installed it previously and has any tips.
