Question for those that installed the kit already; how high is the rear a-arm mount compared to the stock..

In other words is the pivot point at the same height above the diff, or does the RC mount raise it any?

Just another old fart in a Jeep... watchout younguns!!!

Looks ghetto for some reason. Maybe you need bigger dubs to match.

Thanks guys! That answered one of my BIG questions..


RC tech answered the other; rear A-arm diff mount is raised 30 degrees over stock.

I'm happy with the components of the lift. The arms and crossmember are solid as can be and the joints are beefy. I haven't started the install yet. I'm goin to Colorado feb 9th till the 14th. Ill install when I get back

I'm trying to decide between this kit and the IRO w/ adjustable arms. Does everybody really like this kit as much as they are saying?

I got mine yesterday and so far this kit looks pretty stout. I plan on throwing it on as is then in time upgrading things that I dont like such as the track bar with an IRO one. When you look at the big picture its about 50 bucks more than IRO's and you get a rear long arm setup. I wont have mine installed for awhile but my first impression is satisfied. Hit up the JeepHut for a price quote, you will be satisfied.
