I just bought my 4" RC lift kit. It arrived three days ago.
Ok I installed RC's 4" lift kit on my friends jeep. We finished this last night.
This list is for both his and my Jeep. His is a 92 yj mine is a 89 yj.
RC's 4" lift kit-$499.00
Daystar 1.25 shackles-$170
Driveshaft Specialist CV style-$310
Brake line extension kit -$90
and I sure other little things I've forgotton with a total of $1650.00
His jeep is done and looks awesome. He went from an unknown 3.5 lift from P.O. to a 5.25. We test drove it last night and it rode just fine. Other than a little rough, but Ah, folks, these are JEEPS not town cars. We have NOT taken it off roading yet so I dont know how it will flex, but he has 33's and sitting in the shop, it looks like plenty of room to flex.
To Rough Country:
You wanted feed back ? Here is mine:
I don't like the leak packs. They should/NEED to be at least 4 in the front and 5 in the rear. Your leaf packs are light, and this will cause them to sag sooner. A good set of 4" leaf's would be 5 in the front and 6 in the rear, that is if you want them to LAST. Yes this would cause it to ride Rougher, but if that was an option, I would have went with it. Now for my jeep I have to buy the add a leaf to correct this.
For the rest of the kit, I thought was good and well worth it. All parts needed came with the kit.
However I don't know how well your leafs would have set in the rear if we had used the OEM's shackles. I fear they would have been too close to the frame. They seemed a bit short. But with the 1.25' lift shackles, once the jeep was off the stands with full wieght on them they lined up perfectly and look good.
Oh and RC's customer service is 5 stars. Since I'm swapping my dana 35 out for a Ford 8.8 they were able to work with me on getting the correct rear U-bolts. A heavier leaf pack in the future would be really nice to see.
That's my take. The only other lift I've ever had was years ago, it was a Skyjacker lift that was on a truck when I bought it.
