|spogle||This is my 04 TJ pics from stock, to a newly installed RC 3.25in lift. I used the spacers in the rear as well. It didnt look right without the 3/4 in spacers, looked like the back was sagging a bit. But I have BF Goodrich 31 x 10.5 T/A's and stock 8x15 in wheels. I like the look, but any taller I would go with a 32 or 33.|

|TjinaTj||So do 31 work better than a 33 m/t?|

|Jarnel||I've had my lift for awhile now and I've got new tires still 31's and am very satisfied with the performance. Its a good lift and tire combo for my little 4 cyl engine. I've been able to get where i want with ease and also some places i thought i couldn't get to. I won't go to 33s even tho I'd like to because like i said i am satisfied with this setup. Thanks for commenting in this feed everyone|

Here is my 3 1/4'' RC with 1 1/4'' BL. I used a piece of 1x2 sq tubing for TC drop and I also purchased longer SS fr brake lines especially since i disco my front sway bar. Its sitting on 33's with stock rim with 1 1/2'' wheel spacers from RC. No tire rubbing now.
This my DD I removed the rear sway completely and used the rear track bar bracket that came with kit. One thing that i didn't order with the kit was a drop pitman arm, but I building a high steer for it.
It changed the ride of my jeep for the good. Good Luck

Just installed the 3.25 RC this weekend. The ride seems good....maybe even better than stock, but will not judge until I get it alingment done. I also am having an issue with it popping out of 2nd gear (noticed one of the earlier post mentioned this). Is this fix as simple as moving console back a bit? Figured I had something more serious facing me. I'm new to having a lift, but it does seem a bit top heavy and not handling great, but hoping the alignment helps the steering feeling. Getting either 31's or 32's and new wheels on this week. Will post a pic when it is complete.

Adawg38: this is a stupid question but what are "mt" tires?
|02-04-2012 04:52 PM|
Heres mine with 3.25 and 31's
and here it is with the 33's

|adawg38||I've had it for 1 1/2 years and it's been fine. When I first got it they had a bad batch of their 2.2 shocks which I warrantied and it's been fine since. I think their customer service is great and if you have any issues they will make sure and take care of it.|

Thats right! ha oops and the cragars I want don't come in 3.75 I guess 4 will have to work and I'll just have to hope they don't stick in the fender flare.
One more question, not sure if you said early, but how long have you had your RC lift/how has it held up?
|01-12-2012 08:07 PM|
|adawg38||Any BS between 3.75"-4.5" will work fine. 4.5" BS will stick out .50" less than the 4" though.|
|01-12-2012 05:17 PM|
|01-10-2012 11:45 AM|
|adawg38||They stick out 2" past my stock flares which are 3.75" out from the body. The 6" Pockets should be pretty even with em.|

During install you should check full bump and shock clearances, so post pictures of both the front and rear axle at full bump, with the shocks connected, and springs removed.
Like this in front:
and this in rear:
here's some education on bumpstops:

[QUOTE=UnlimitedLJ04;1896339]bumpstop extensions have a lot less to do with tires than they do shocks. You will absolutely need bumpstop extensions with the RC lift, regardless of tire size, in order to prevent the shocks from bottoming out.
I only say this because my stock bump stops with this lift shocks and all are fine without hitting or damage but if I got bigger tires then when in full flex they would hit inside of the wheel well.

the next questions to ask yourself - when you're reading reviews and people say they have "no problems"...would they actually know if they had a problem?
Read here for bumpstops:
Make sure to get the whole story before spending your hard earned money...regardless of what kit you choose.

I've got nothing against RC, and some of their products are just fine. The OP wanted opinions, and I'm providing links to other people's opinions.

|adawg38||RC 3.25" is $380 on their website. Comes with everything you need TC drop rear trac bar relocation bracket, shocks, coils, 3/4" spacers, and front and rear sway bar links. It just doesn't come with extended bump stops which you will need if you go over 31" tires.|
|01-06-2012 07:44 PM|
|jeepgarza||is there anything else needed? mml, t-case drop?|
|01-06-2012 04:30 PM|
|jeepgarza||380? That cheap! I was figuring around 500! How does it ride compared to stock?|
|01-06-2012 01:23 PM|
|adawg38||just go straight through Rough Country $380 for the kit plus maybe $46 for shipping.|
|01-06-2012 11:11 AM|
|jeepgarza||where would be the best place to buy (what website)?|
|01-06-2012 05:58 AM|
|chickiebaby||I would recommend RC. With th e bigger tires it rides just fine. No issues here|
|01-06-2012 04:39 AM|
|Jarnel||Yes rough country. I've had no problems with it. Its pretty much great|
