Price: $779.99
Pros: Gained 3.5" of lift over stock with hardtop (3.75" rear with hardtop removed) Rides great on/off-road. Clears 265/75/R16 BFG All-Terrains with no issues.
Cons: Minor installation issues: Read Below
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Fairly complete suspension kit. Easy installation. Good performance.




Minor Installation Issues:

1) Leaf spring center pins too large for the hole in rear (Dana-35) spring perch. 1/2" hole 9/16" diameter pin. Resolved by drilling hole to 9/16".

2) Rear shocks have clearance issues when installed properly. Shock tube makes contact with axle tube. Mounting these twin-tube shocks upside down would resolve the clearance issue but the manufacturer said they will not perform properly if mounted upside down. First they said a minor dent in the outer tube (which may result from the contact with the axle tube) should not affect the performance/life of these shocks on YJ's. Later they said I needed the shock relocation bracket Part#RE2007 and they sent me a set. That resolved the issue.

Comments: It's the R.E. Extreme Duty 2.5" kit for the CJ. It's actually 3.25" so know that when you buy shcoks - DO NOT go by the shock catalogs for 2.5"

Comments: Good ride and not a difficult installation. Things are starting to get a little rusty, though. I've had it on since September of 2007
