Rubicon Express RE7002 3.5" Standard Lift

This is sold as the standard lift it does not include shocks

The RE7002 suspension system provides 3.5 inches of lift for your TJ/LJ at an economically feasible price. This suspension system is ideal for an entry-level vehicle owner or those on a smaller budget. This Standard lift systems features new coil springs, bump stops and extended sway bar end links. The stock control arms, tack bar and other components are reused. This system will perform smoothly on and off the trail, and is easily upgradeable to either a 3.5 or 4.5-inch Super-Flex™ system. This suspension will allow the use of 33 x 12.5 tires.

Note: The installation of a slip yoke eliminator and CV driveshaft on the stock NP231 transfer case is recommended on a TJ.


The installation of a CV driveshaft on the stock Rubicon NP241 transfer case is recommended on a TJ

Rubicon Express RE7002 3.5" Standard Lift

I have been very happy with this lift. The installation instructions were very well written and installation was simple. The only recommendation I have is to get an adjustable front track bar to save from drilling a new hole to mount the factory track bar. I also needed a CV rear drive shaft.

Should have spend the extra money for the Super Flex kit. Springs ride a little ruff, but getting 4" out of a 3.5 kit is nice. Install took several hours too.

Good starting point, but pony up extra cash for everything.

Great for both off and on road use! I have been to deserts in Nevada and throughout the Sierra Nevadas.

Quality product. Even the rear track bar bracket was designed for a sye kit when pinion angle is adjusted. Ride quality is a little better. Needed a drop pitman arm that was not included in kit but it is a STANDARD kit and the price was right too. If I had the chance I would have gotten the super flex kit instead of the standard but im still in collage so you know how that goes. Does need a SYE kit.

I like this kit because it came complete with all of the necessary parts and instructions. The added height did suprise me.

So far so good. Looks to be a quality built product. Is fine for what I will use it for. Provides a better than stock ride.

I like the kit. I especially liked the fact that you can upgrade to a superflex for fairly cheap. Expect to put an SYE/CV DS in as the TC drops are not enough.

The installation was great, minus the fact that i had trouble with my front shocks, but that is tobe dealt with if you live in the rust belt. I just finished the install today, so i can't really review it just quite yet...

Installation wasn't too difficult. I installed it by myself in a weekend. I only wish the instructions were more detailed.
