I'm in need of some advice guys. Next on my shopping list is to get a 4" lift for my WJ but I'm not sure which rough country to get. Theres the RC 4" suspension kit and then theres the RC 4" X-Series Kit. What would you recommend and what are the benefits and disadvantages for each lift. Thanks

Everything was fine coming home from work yesterday, but then heading out to get pizza and beer for some friends coming over and the damn thing never got warm, never had any substantial heat form the vents, and it sat down between the first two lines on the temperature gage. Damn thermostat must have stuck open after coming home from work yesterday. Never have had one fail open before.

Just replaced the water pump, hoses and thermostat in May when the water pump started to weep pretty good. I guess Stant thermostats aren't what they used to be!!

so serious question here. the picture i posted above of the bds 2" coil lift from fat bobs garage.

notice the two front coils really close together...? they are indeed stuck together. and my friend and i cannot get them apart. anyone have any ideas on how to do so.

on topic: i filled her with gasoline and washed all the salt off. maybe ill take some hub to fender measurements later so that when i do install the lift ill know how much i really gained over spacers

Yes, definitely. That would be good info. On the coils, have you tried "unscrewing" them? Maybe that's what happened, they sort of screwed together......

Took it on a 500 mile hunting trip with lots of snow wheeling and pulling germans out of snow banks. it was awesome. The dub did great and impressed the heck out of the germans.


I did a big write up with lots of pics over here.

Lots of mods over the year ready for Xmas outing now

Added 35's, armer, tank lift front axle moved forward, rear back. lots of clearancing in wheel arches and over the past 2 months fox remote res 12" coil overs Which have been mounted into the engine bay with extensive plateing and bracing which also put the remote res safely in the engine bay. Jeep sits about 7" plenty of up travel with know rubbing. Can't wait to get out there over the brake, Just fine tuning couple last things this week
