Talking Post Lift Pics

Special thanks to CruiserBruiser, JIMBOX, HillDweller, USAntigoon for helping answer alot of my newb questions in my previous thread. I am running 35 x 12.5 x 17 Maxxis BigHorns and the Rough Country 3.25 inch lift. I added X-Flex adjustable control arms and a JKS adjustable front track bar as it didnt come with the kit. My bumpers are Rugged Ridge XHD Modular front and XHD w/ tire carrier rear.

I have some Rugged Ridge Rocker Guards that have been shipped and will be on this week.

Thanks! I've been wanting to do it ever since I bought it 18 months ago....I'm very happy with how it turned out! Icing on the cake was my girlfriend coming home and saying she doesn't really notice that much of a difference "maybe its a little bigger I guess, I just don't pay attention to that stuff" were her exact words. Good thing she is beautiful because her observation skills suck!

Thanx Tpr, seems like 2.5" was a well engineered lift, for minimal suspension changes, I like the RC better, cause it's all STEEL !!

Remember HD, I don't do mud, but the front looked like it after all the snow/slush travel

You know, I usually really dislike roof racks because most of them make the Jeep look like a range rover... but I like that one. Doesn't look like you lose too much clearance on the top side (Big thing for me living in Chicago, in case I need to get into a parking garage like at work... I make it with about 3 inches to spare at the moment) and looks like it functions well.

That, and I always liked yellow Jeeps. Very sharp!

And TPR, your Jeep is very sharp as well! Looks like it is coming along quite nicely

JIMBOX, how long have you had your RC lift. Have you had any problems with the coils sagging after awhile. I've read some sketchy reviews were ppl mother F RC and now I'm worried

Although, I chose the RC SPACER- lift, because I've got the Rubicon coil springs, already on and they're longevity is much better than the cheaper, coil lifts coils and mine are warrantied !!

What I meant about "ALL STEEL" was that the "PUCKS" are powdercoated steel, not plastic or rubber, so there will be no structural breakdown

I also used RC9000XL shocks and set them at "5" to try out, I used Daystar front bumpstop extensions and made the rear extensions out of 2x4" sq stock !

I drove the jeep on back roads/Pyramid Lake sand/dirt and I 80 freeway, so far it's much better than stock and is stable as hell

I adjusted the steering wheel so I wouldn't get a "chime" and it's perfect

I couldn't see any visual difference in the front/rear axles placement, because of the 2" lift, I think it's because of MFG tolerances and my Bushwacker fenders

I've also heard that the RC COIL: 2.5" lift is kinda junky

Well I guess time will tell. If I have problems, atleast i've read for the most part RC customer service is good. If I have to change out the coils then I'll cross that bridge when I get to it, atleast I have the adjustable control arms and track bar to grow with my Jeep

I have also read almost EVERYWHERE that the Rough Country lift is really really Rough....I don't think it's bad at all.
