I bought the Jeep the way it sat in the first pic. I could never get the RK to drive/ride like I wanted and also wanted to go to 37ís. I probably could have gotten by with RK but was able to sell when I took it off. Personally, I will not run another rough country...thatís just personal preference.

RockYour4x4.com I spend a lot of time off road. You can even see mine on YouTube. He asked for pictures. I think he wants to see more of how it sits, not on a trail.

I do indeed want to see how it looks. I will be getting 33x12.50r15 for my Jeep once I get back home. As much as I wanted to go with 10.5, there is far more of a selection for 12.5s and they are cheaper. KO2s varry but from 10.5-12.5 they are a 12 dollarish diffrence. Which takes care of mounting costs haha. But thatís just an example of one brand. There are more choices when itís a 33x12.5. Might honestly go with the iron mans, I had them on my Silverado, and although they were really soft, they took care of me in the mud and the side wall of my tires held up well out in the dessert of west Texas. Besides living in the heat of west Texas tires typically donít last to long over a year.

That is why am swapping out the shocks with teraflex shocks, the springs do have a stiffer ratio but not that much. Besides the lift comes with everything I want out of a lift: the next step up with everything I want it 2400 .. I will let yíall know how it turns out it might be a you were right might be a itís all good who knows

I did, only reason Iím not going that route is because it doesnít have all 8 control arms, brake lines, and trac bar. The control arms and trac bar Iím getting with RC are adjustable and Iíve heard good things about the control arms.

do RC track bars clear other components while cycling the suspension? I believe the answer to that question is yes.

the beauty of the 4.25" combo is that you dont need adj arms. the only add ons that are regularly recommended are a front adj track bar by Currie, MC, or JKS and YJ front brake lines. We did that to the wife's jeep then added 33" MTR's and an aussie in the front diff and she can go pretty much anywhere I can go.

note: the 4" x-series lift from RC comes with a drop pitman arm and a drop track bar mount. that is more proof that instead of doing the R&D to make a quality product, they choose to take shortcuts. if you do go for a 4" lift, have you added the expense of a SYE or are you planning on dropping the TC skid?

Thats the good thing about Zone. Its a 3" suspension lift which eliminates the need for control arms.



YJ brake lines are $20. A metalcloak track bar can be had for under $200.



I'd rethink your purchase...

FYI, the OP is looking for pics of a TJ with 4" lift and 33" tires. not a JK with 4" lift and 35's or a TJ with 3" lift and 32's.
