Rubicon Express 3.5" Super Flex TJ

Cant say anything bad about this lift. Looks great on a jeep lj. monotube shock ride a little firmer than stock.

Rubicon Express 3.5" Super Flex TJ

I bought mine from groupbuy4x4 and it included an AA SYE kit and TW's rear CV driveshaft. If doing the SYE route, be sure and order a rear trackbar bracket designed for the rotated up rear diff. And get a set of rear shock lower mount extenders so your rear shocks won't hit the axle tube (I think the ones I ordered were from Tereflex). But otherwise a straightforward installation. I'm running 285/75/16" tires (33"x11.5") on 16x8 rims and it looks great.

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.

Great lift! I added adjustable uppers all around and combined them with OME Nitrocharger shocks. Great combo!

I haven't put it on yet, I'm awaiting a good review as I've done my research from site reviews. 4WheelParts.com will match any advertised (internet included) price and beat or match it.

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.

I haven't had a chance to use it much yet. Then one pro that I do like already though is that its upgradeable.

This kit simply amazes me, I have kept up with quite a few long arm'd rigs with my somewhat little short arm'd setup.
