Rustys lift kits

I'm trying to build a 88 wagoneer and am ordering parts soon
Is this a good lift kit for the price ? I'm not trying to spend more than a grand on a lift for it

Depends on your plans. A 6" spring lift has a lot of arch. It limits articulation some. You will probably need to extend the drive shafts too. The ride will be a little harsh.

I had a 4" Rusty. I didn't use his shocks ( I heard they were not that great). I loved it. Ride seemed good, I beat the crap out of it and it held up fine. No drive shaft lengthening (your results may vary and you may find the drive shaft becomes your limiting articulation factor, which is not good).

Added some sliders and a locker and the truck could go most places.

How hard do you wheels ? Like do you do rocks climbing or mud ? I just more or less hit mud and trails. Wanna be able to climb some **** but nothing too intense. Did you have to extend the drive shaft or anything ? What all mods did you have to make to accumulate for you lift ?

I don't trail hard. Def no rocks. No other mods. I also have only driven about 500 miles since installing it so I'm sure its still setting.
