Tj 6" Lift Kit Questions:

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....

That's a lot of lift for short arms. The arms will be angled down something fierce.

You don't want a 6" short arm lift. Ever.
