I would like to see how this goes as well. I've got an 04 GC. Been savin up to buy a lift. This lift would fit my budget very well if everything works out great.

Nice!!! Those arms look pretty stout. Any issues with the install thus far?

Looks like you need to fix a leak in your transfer case

Only issue was I did need to notch the new cross member about 1/2" to clear tranny mount was very easy though everything has been pretty easy we have done about 4 or the xj rough country long arms and have ha really good luck. We will get front done tonight and get a good start on the back. Should have it done sometime Saturday.

Agreed. I don't like the silver coils and shocks from the RCX kit on my gold WJ, but they blend in under there now.

I think I'd have to paint the long arm stuff black, maybe red.

Im indifferent on the silver. I dont think it would look any better black or any other color against my platinum Exterior. I guess it doesn't really matter that much to me anyway, because its all going to be brown after my first time on the trails.

not knocking it...just not my style but silver on silver could look good. and maybe its just the angle of the pic but those are some tall looking springs for a 4'' lift!
