Brandon Yj you sir are the reason i will be buying a lift kit from RC

While i finish everything else up dealing with my engine and interior bologna
i can rest easy and not be constantly debating on the lift kit i should buy this year.
Your unstopable support for RC is cool bro. I think you answer more q's than the vendor
RC should give you a medal.......or atleast a gold star, gold stars are cool

I call it as I see it man.
I know that not everyone out there can afford $800 for a lift, only to spend another $400 on an SYE/CVDS setup and then another $100 on this-and-thats. It'd be obtuse of me to think otherwise.
And not everyone needs/wants the *best* hardware. They want what will work for them mechanically, and what will work for them as far as their wallets are concerned. There has to be a balance.
If I think something is garbage I'll tell it like it is, don't get me started on Harbor Freight tap-and-die kits!!
And likewise, if I think something is a great deal when you weigh the coin against the tangible item, I'll give my opinion on that.
But don't make your purchasing decision based only on what I say, doing the research (searching posts, asking questions, gathering information) on your own is more important than blindly following the word of some fat man who can't even trim his beard straight. And I'm sure you have done your fair amount of research!
OK, I'm rambling. Just got home from a 13 hour shift and this 3rd beer is telling me it's time to hit the sack.

GTFO if your just gonna say that and not give a reason why.
He has explained his issue he had on about page six I guess he thinks it is his duty to sway people away from Rough Country but apparently he has not read the 100 pages of this thread. I am here to stay. SORRY hate it for him. I am here to offer a good product for a great price and the customer service to back it all up. I told him I was sorry about his experience and that if he still had the RC kit it would be made right but he wants to keep telling his story to people so 92 GREEN YJ I hope you can hear me playing your sad song on the violin.

yes I did.

Would've mailed em back to RC with some nasty things painted on them but I decided I had wasted enough money on his garbage.

Replaced it all with Rubicon Express and have been much happier. for the record since ditching the RC garbage in favor of the Rubicon Express lift I have never once had ANY problems with the Rubicon Express components. I have wheeled much harder and much rougher on the RE springs and they have held up fantastically.

Like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for

for those who didn't see my original post, this is what you can expect with Rough Crappy springs


thats just one of the bent springs I suffered. that was the first. that happened exactly one week after I installed the kit on the first run out. Was some pretty mild wheeling too as I was still running open diffs and the turdy 5 rear end.

And did RC honor their "warranty" hell no. he said he would be more than happy to send me a new spring for $85 plus shipping.

Anything like trying to bump up a ledge, or over a log or rock will cause that to happen on a soft spring.

Yes the old springs were bad about that but our new springs do not have that issue. There are TONZ of guys that have that kit on here and love them.

I dont know why anyone keeps amusing this idiot. He thinks one thing, we know another. RC springs were bad back in the day. Now they are awesome. Its like night and day. Yeah maybe they are not the softest springs but for what you get (product and customer service wise) the price is untouchable. If RC sucked so bad there would be 101 pages and counting....again GOOD JOB RC!!!!!

You've had your say. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, but now you are just being a troll. Let it go.

And for the record, you are bashing the old springs that RC doesn't even sell anymore. This thread has NOTHING to do with those springs in your pictures. RC has new springs now, and since you have NO experience with the new springs, your input is worthless. The ONLY valid opinion you are allowed to have here relates to the warranty and customer service. We get it, you don't like it. Now please stop being a troll.

you do realize that is the result of a shackle kick back...any spring will do that if a shackle kicks backward too far
