whats the difference whats free ome??Good kit for the YJ. However you can get free shocks for about same price here:Rubicon Express YJ 4.5 Extreme Duty Lift - RE5520 FREE OME SHOCK
There is no way to do an soa for 400ummm why waist your money, soa all the way, do it for 400 or less if you got some fab skills.soa=4 1/4 lift, stock ride, more articulation. just my 2 cents
sua lifts are usually cheaper than soa. especially if you dont have a welder at hand. u can gain back almost all the articulation by disconnecting the sway bars. if you know how to wheel, you probobly wont come to any spots on the trail that you wont be able to pass just because its a sua rather than soa. i have trouble enough trying to find a challenging enough place to offroad around here as it is. :banghead:
i just bought a 4" rough country lift because in my case, it was by far the cheapest way to go. i needed new springs and shocks anyways and a steering stabilizer. and as i mentioned- i dont know anyoneee who welds or has a welder so i'd have to add on an arc welder to my expense for the lift. another words, i was too impatient to wait and just bought the lift. haha
Dave what's your experience with the 4-1/2" kit? I have been running the 2-1/2" for 2 + years now. Really comes down to the shocks.i think you've been tossing this around on here before. that kit is gonna ride like crap, and perform worse on the trail, and it is very expensive. and soa w/ stock springs is about 5.5"-6"
the part you quoted sums it up. 2 1/2" won't ride terrible, once you start going over 3" w/ sua those springs are big stiff smiley faces. they have to be stiff and ride hard to give you that lift. good shocks will be better than cheap shocks, but shocks won't take away the stiff ride, and won't help stiff springs flex on the trail.Dave what's your experience with the 4-1/2" kit?
