RE7002 3.5" Standard Kit TJ/LJ - The Standard kit is a perfect entry for those looking to run 33" tires on a smaller budget. The 3.5" Standard kit includes springs, and bump stops, but maintains stock control arms and track bars. On and off road performance of this kit is excellent and is easily upgradeable to the Super-Flex kit by adding our control arms and other Super-Flex components.

Price: $800.00
Pros: Nice height, firm ride, complete kit
Cons: No upper control arms or front track bar included.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Complete kit. Installed the kit by myself in about 6 hours. I purchased the twin tube shocks and would probably go with monotube if I had to do it again.
Installation was pretty straightforward, following the RE instructions. I would recommend adj. upper control arms and front track bar to ease/correct alignment and pinion angles.
Very solid lift for the $$.

Price: $900.00
Pros: It gave me the Clearance and look I wanted
Cons: Price
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The kit is new and I wasnt sure how it would go. I bought the Rubicon Express 3.5 lift kit and Rubicon Mono-Tube shocks. The install was easy, and the ride stayed about the same, just a little stiffer than stock. Im real happy that I spent the extra money and went with this lift. I also keep in mind that this kit is engineered to be easily up-graded to a Super-Flex system. Overall it gave me the clearance I needed and the look I wanted.

Price: $820.00
Pros: rides great on the streets, flex is amazing and reasonably priced compared to others
Cons: no problems yet just be sure not to skimp out on shocks
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i would recommend this kit to anyone who is looking to run 33's on a smaller budget. the flex on this kit is amazing and the ride is close to stock. i have had it for almost a year and have no squeaks or problems. i installed a sye and cv along with it so i wouldn't have to worry about vibrations. if i had to do it all over again i would buy this kit again.

Price: $900.00
Pros: Tough axle end spherical joints, higher lift than advertized, decent ride, decent price, and easy to install
Cons: control arm bushings at frame end, are crap. I have been through 3 sets of bushings in 6mo, and that's daily driving/light wheeling. The warranty on the bushings is a joke, they only replaced one set of bushings under warranty, and I have come out of pocket $50+ for each set of 4.
Recommended? No

Comments: I wa extremely happy withthe easy install, tough looking parts, actual lift i gained, and decent ride. I have one major problem, that's the cheap junk control arm bushings they use in the SF kit. If anyone is interested in this kit, I suggest selling the RE arms, and getting some good currie arms, or similar.

Rubicon Express 3.5" Super Flex TJ
Price: $920.00
Recommended? No

Comments: I got this kit with the monotube shocks, and got it at a reat price. The kit installed easily, and all the parts fit correctly. I liked the quality of the parts, and the ride of the springs.

NOW THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!
I installed the kit, and didn't make it out of the driveway without having trouble. I literally had zero miles on the kit, and I started hearing a clunk noise. I rechecked everything, and started tracking down the noise. I found that the rubber super flex bushings at the frame end of the RE conrol arms were extremely soft. They had about 1/4-3/8" give. This means that the axles are rollong back under a load. This causes the pinion angle to change.
