Understand this, on a 2dr with no heavy bumpers or winch the RK lift will give you about 4" of lift. The RK is designed for heavily built rigs.

12k miles and no issues with mine.

So I decided to keep it and buy a new BMW. But it's a motorcycle, R1200GS. Love both vehicles!

No issues with the GS either.

The real value in it is that it has a title. There are tons of old Jeeps out there that don't. Offer $500 with cash in hand, he'll probably jump at it.

Next, find the best non modified one that...

There really is no excuse for death wobble at all. It should only show up after many hard miles of extreme use. The engineering and technology is out there to put an end to it. Using the wrong size...

Rarity often has something to do with it. And they are weird and quirky, which also helps with the type that like them.
