Pros: Very stout, Great Articulation, JKS Quicker Disconnects, Heavy duty Transmission mount, and extended brake lines...
Cons: None
Would you recommend to friend: Absolutely

I've had this kit for about 2 years now and I couldn't be happier with it. I have the angled control arms for extra clearance, this kit means business!
Some of Rusty's other products are iffy but not this lift. It was relatively easy to install with the exception of 4 holes to drill in the frame rail for the control arm mounts but other than that it bolted on like a dream... They say it's only a 5.5 in kit but, mine sits a little over six inches higher than stock with 33 inch tires on....

Price: $2,100.00
Pros: Articulation
Cons: Flex joints are garbage, difficult install because nothing lines up and have to be creative
Recommended? No

Comments: I bought this kit to upgrade my awesome 4" Teraflex short arm kit that didn't flex far enough and am very unhappy. I am a decent auto mechanic for all things and this was extremely difficult for me to install. Once I finally got the kit on I went to Colorado and wheeled Holy Cross trail. The driver lower control arm flex joint broke and banged the whole way. I have performed regular maintenance on the joints and it should not have failed being 6 months old. I had a local shop in Montrose CO weld it in place to finish my trip. 8 months later I was in Moab and the opposite joint failed.....again after regular maintenance. Recently I went to Moab again and the passenger rear joints failed on the first day and made for a noisy ride. After talking to Moab 4x4 Outpost I finally learned the joints are not designed or built well. If I could send this lift back I would and would have bought one of the more expensive kits such as Rockkrawler or BDS. I've run across many people in my Jeep club and on the trails and they have not had the same issues. DO NOT BUY THIS KIT

Also, the transmission skid plate doesn't fit at all. I had to grind the holes out to fit the mount. The instructions are terrible and Rusty himself is of no help at all. He told me he sells hundreds of these kits a month and has no issues. Again....DO NOT BUY THIS KIT
