Sorry to hear that Rusty, hope he's ok.

I've been out of service for two weeks from a mishap with a boxblade. I've been cutting things properly for 25 years (ok, yeah, I'm old) but this one time I'm upside down cutting a hose (the wrong way ) and almost cut my arm off. Missed all the important stuff but still took 6 stitches. Sad thing was it wasn't even the Jeep I was working on.

Point is, it's easy to get in a hurry and do something stupid (my case, not necessarily your brothers) and accidents happen. I'm gonna make an extra effort towards safety, not having use of your hand for two weeks will wake you up!

Just figured I throw my 2 cents in. I just intalled a 4" RC kit the other day on my '93 YJ. installation went fairly easy only a few quarks to the system (i.e. the shims on the rear leaf packs were reversed it was a simple fix to loosen the packs and turn them the correct way; also the 3 bolts for the track bar brackets weren't listed so well in the directions to which bolt went where, it only took a few seconds to correct so no big deal; the only major issue was the rear track bar bracket didn't fit the original bracket on the frame, it was too wide we ended up having to bend the original bracket out some and pound the new bracket into the old one.) The thing I honestly liked about the installation was that we didn't have to disconnect any of the brake lines when we installed the extentsion brackets. Aside from these few issues I listed the whole kit was well put together and organized and would have been done and put together in 3 hours had it not been for the rear bracket issue. All in all loved the customer service, exceptional delivery time of 3 days and relatively straight forward assembly. As for the individuals that wrote that the suspension is rough I'm curious because mine rides great but then again my rig rides heavy due to accessories and recovery gear a rough ride was my stock suspension that was completely shot for the past 85k of its 185k life.

Do you have anyone running 35's with the 4"????

I have 1" lift bomerang shakles and the wheel wells cut out with TJ flares and have 33" Thornbirds (on 15x10 wheels) with about 4" clearance from the tire to the flare.

I was hoping I could stay with a 4" lift with this set-up and run 35's????

What do you guys think?

To be honest I have not seen any but I'm sure they are out there, since you have the cut fenders and TJ flares you should have enough room.

Got my 4" suspension system today with upgraded nitro shocks along with SS lines, 2.2 steering stabilizer, and sway bar disco's. Thankx Ryan!

Will post a pic of Jeep after Thanksgiving break.

94 YJ w/ stuff. All the work/money I put into it, and the comment I get most is my $20 mod: "Hand throttle?!? That's awesome."

I am running that setup, but with a 2" bodylift. Without the bumpstops in the front it scrubs bad enough to bend the fenders. So I put in the front bumpstops and that keeps it from hitting the fenders. In the rear if I had any less than the 2" of body lift it would scrub there too. What I have works but I'd like to have another inch or two of suspension to really flex it out like it could........But I wouldn't recommend 35's w/ just the 4" & shackles & TJ flares unless you are doing some flat fender or comp cut stuff. If you are interested I've got lots of pics in my build thread (link in signature)

The pic in my gallery is mine with 35" boggers. Its got the 4" RC, 1" lift shackles and a 2" body. It would flex into the stock flares in the rear and the fender in the front, but just barely.

My only thought is that there are only two guys working from 7-8 and they could have been swamped and if that was the case you never would have gotten through. I am here until 7pm (cst) tonight so feel free to call me.
