I am old enough to know no matter how many times I tell the kiddies on here that they are better off saving more money to buy a decent lift, But We all know they will buy RC and be pleased with it until it falls apart 6 months down the road then I will have to post in the thread they created saying why is my lift sagging ? With a reply that says told ya to buy a better kit !

Why is my RC lift sagging?

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

Same here, but since my wheeling has obviously got to the point where I thrash more, I'm learning the limits of the unibody. My next build will be a TJ/YJ...

Don't forget: they're probably neglecting maintenance/repairs in order to buy that RC lift (and new stereo receiver and speakers) as well. Tune-ups and fluid changes aren't "cool" enough dontchaknow.

I'd be willing to bet that most of the younger people who have XJs didn't pick their first one as their first choice, but it grew on them after owning it.
They aren't cheap when you keep building them!

Each step is cheaper. Put $5k into a XJ, and 5k into a Toyota Tacoma and see which rig gets more done to it.

I have to disagree, all my future mods are more expensive than my previous mods and I already have over $5k into mine.

For a Tacoma, of equal quality to the XJ I started with, I'd have paid twice as much right there. The rest depends on how obsessed you are.

In that case, the smallest mods will help you to stand out.

Both would be the same, axles, steering 4links bumpers etc, its all steel and when you build it yourself it doesn't matter what its on

Rubicon express makes a good lift correct?

while I understand some of the quality issues with RC (that's what I have on my jeep). and I've been doing this for a few years, I've gone through several sets of equipment but there warranty cant be beat (when) I trash one of my leafs or something else I make a phone call email a pic and I've got a new leaf within a few days no questions asked I blew out one shock and because they didn't make that shock they sent me a whole new set. I may get away from RC someday but no time soon. if you say just buy better quality it will last longer I will say doing what we do everything brakes eventually. if I would ever give an XJ owner advice it would e very get an add a leaf they all sag.
that being said I don't want to turn this into a what's a better lift thread they all have there merits yes even RC. if you ask 5 XJ owners about lifts you'll get 5 different opinions I would be running OME leafs if they made the size I wanted. but alas no.
