some advice for a new guy
hey guys, my name is paul. I am new to the forum, but i have found forums to be pretty helpful to my hobbies. I have leanred alot from the greenhulk jetski forum and have been rebuilding motors and racing them mostly because of the forum. I am hoping to get the same results here.
First off, i own a 06 wrangler unlimited and i love it. it is my first Jeep but i have always wanted one.
I just bought a Rough Country 4" X lift. with adjustable control arms, 9000 series nitro shocks, and transfer case lowering kit.
At first I was hesitant because the price was low compared to other brands who offered comparable kits. I did a lot of reading of reviews from mags and asked some local off roaders and they all reccomended it.
Then it hit me to find a Jeep Forum. I see on here some people are not pleased with the ride or the performance of the kit.
I'm not particularly concerned with a smooth ride. if i were i would have bought a 1/2 ton pick up. What i am concerned with is the overall quality of the lift and its durability.
Before I solicted advice i will tell you i play on a SYE and Tom Woods drive shaft. I dont like the idea of my TC hanging lower to the ground. it somewhat defeats the purpose of lifting the jeep. I currently have 31" firestone destinations that i will use for everyday commuting. i plan on running a 33x12.5 for wheelin'
If you have made it this far thanks for taking the time to adress my thread.
What can i expect out of my RC 4" X lift and is there anything i should do in addition to this project?
PS I will be doing the install with my diesel tech and a couple of veteran jeep guys. I'll document the process and post.
