Wj ?!?!?RC Suspension with BB?!?!?!

I want to run 32's on 17's with a 4 inch lift. 90 percent of the jeep's iv'e seen with 32's and a 4 inch lift just look odd. Its like there forcing the tire under the wheel well. And I don't want to really run a 31 I think it s too small, and 33's are too big. I'm thinking putting a 1 inch BB under there, i think it would make it look better give the tire more room.

Does anyone have have any pics of this setup??? Thanks
Tye

Here is mine with 4inch basic RC lift on 2inch pucks. 32inch tire. I'm thinking the RC springs are sagging a bit.

Do you guys like you RC kits or no ? Because I've been hearing a lot of good and bad things about them. What's your guy's opinion ?

I liked mine for about the first year. I'm in the process of buying and switching out everything RC though. It's the old saying you get what you pay for. One you get it lifted you're like awesome this jeep rocks, then as time goes buy you're constantly upgrading and swapping parts to get noises to stop and make the ride better. Bump steer/death wobble is starting to plague me right now. I'm thinking its my stock UCA bushings but last time I crawled underneath her I noticed one of the RC lower CA bushing was split. I am currently running Bilstein shocks now and definitely noticed a difference from the RC shock.

I got them thru Nick from Kolak. He is a vendor here on the forum. Look him up and he will give you a price. He always hooks us up.

Stay away from the basic tc lift but the xseries is solid I've had my lift on for awhile and over 20k miles and the only complaint was the crown isolators I used were crap. I didn't use the drop tc things didn't use the bumpstops provided and added limit straps.
