rustys 3 inch lift kit.

anyone using this? how do you like it? what size tire can you tuck with the 3 inch lift? hard to instal?? do you need brake line extensions or anything? i just figure i wouldn't be happy with just a 2 BB.

I've got Rusty's (Ok, it's a Skyjacker bought from Rusty's years ago) 3". I haven't gotten it installed yet, it's still sitting in my garage. The install looks fairly straight forward. I think the hardest part will be getting the old bolts undone without air tools.

The guy I got it off of loved the hell out of it. He had 33's on it for five sets of tires. But he got the lift bug again and went to 6.5" + a BB on 35's. He only had minor trimming done to use the 33's. And yes, he wheeled it. Hard. He completely tore his front bumper off in Moab with the exact setup I have from him. But only because he didn't clear a rock in reverse.

Once I get around to putting it in, I'll be doing a write-up on it and a review of it. But to be honest, by the looks of things I'll probably have driven this particular Jeep into the ground before I actually get around to it. I promised my wife we'd get a couple other things done before I put the lift in (around $5,000 worth of things) and since I'm currently unemployed, that may take a while...
