rock krawler lift
anybody have a "rock krawler" lift...i have been looking at the long arm rock krawler lifts and they seem to be very good and they have a very reasonable price so i was just wondering if anybody has had any experience with one...and a couple more questions...with a 5.5" lift how much chance of rolling (flipping) is there (on the road)...and is 1400+ rti ramp score on a 20 degree ramp good?..thanks

Rock Krawler had a rough start when they 1st came out on the market. As I recall there where some issue with the joints and a few other things. The company was sold and the new folks seem to be turning things around. As for 5.5" of lift.. I know that several folks who have the re 5.5 kit have switched over to 4.5 springs as they felt the 5.5's where too tall. And last yes a 1400 on a 20 ramp is a good score.

The height of the lift really depends on tire size choice. Im going to 35's but (most likely) getting the 4.5 RE san the 5.5 for stability issues.
1400 is real good

I've seen a lot of RK lifts in action and they do perform very well. Jeepn is right they did have some issues when they first introduced their Gen I stuff, but Jeremy has been very diligent in turning the company around since he has taken it over. The arms they use are solid stock and darn near indestructable. The new X-Factor kits are well designed and are also very functional. The on road manners are not changed at all. I installed a 5.5 LA on a friends jeep a couple months back and the install was pretty straight forward. However I would caution if you are buying this kit to wheel it good and hard like it's designed then get the weld on cradle and not just the bolt in.
