Tj 6" Lift Questions (Rubi Exp):

Hey guys,

Anybody have any info/opinions/experience with the Rubicon Express Short-Arm kits? I have an 06 Rubicon that another TJ owner said he'd sell me his RE 6" short arm kit for. It's coming off a 2000 Sport TJ.
On the RE site, the longest short arm they make is a 4.5". Did they ever make a 6" kit? Is that even possible with a short arm?

Just wondering what anyone's opinion was, and any info would be appreciated.

Also: would a kit for a 2000 for onto a 06 rubi? And is there any other modification I will need to do lifting the Jeep 6"

Thanks for the help....

I remember seeing 6" short arm lifts for sale, but I really don't think you want to go over 4" in a short arm. What I've read on this forum is 6" in a short arm makes for a really bad ride. Research it in the TJ technical section on the forum here. Ask a few people before making that purchase.
