Exclamation new member in the area

hey all not a new member here but this is the first time finding the CT local section of WF. i currently live in wolcott.just outside of waterbury.im still new to the jeep lifestyle i have had my jeep for about 10 months and i absolutly love it but have only recently started researching lift kits and offroad mods.so needless to say im new to that aspect of the jeep lifestlye.im looking to upgrade the whole suspension system so i have been trying to find the most complete kit and right now im digging the rc 4" X flex kit.does anyone have any experiance with this kit looks like a "good bang for your buck" kit.even if you have no experiance with this kit if you have or are still running any rc kits could you just do a quick review like how it rides on and offroad scale 1-10 on the install and how long you have been running it thanks ladies and gents

Welcome! You might get more responses if you post in the main forum (JK or TJ, whatever it is you have). But I can tell you if you've got a JK you will find no love for the RC lifts! Good luck!

rj: ...Sorry couldn't resist. Wanted to install 2" OME but after reading through the TJ forum decided not to lift my DD. No place to really go "off roading" (I'm originally from Arkansas...everything is pretty much off road) so didn't see the payoff for $. Sueby is right though, in the TJ section is this sticky about "lifts" http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tj-l...ews-25145.html
- Might give you the info your looking for.
