Crazy Lifts I want one and need feed back

Here goes i got 6,000 bucks is the most ill pay for the lift and i have it down to 3 kits and i want the sickest amount of flex i can get. I'm looking for 1100's on the RTI ramp. The three that i have been looking at real hard are teraflex LCG Max 5" kit, Rubicon 5.5" LA, and Fabtech High clearance crawler kit 6".

Im up for suggestions if you know of anything better but as of now these are the best ive seen and as i build up my new 06 ruby price is an option that i'm willing to over look. I just finished my XJ and now i got the fever for something insane.

Thanks again
JB

if you've got 6k and want flex, go with Clayton Off-Road or TnT Customs.

www.claytonoffroad.com

www.tntcustoms.com

both sell very good triangulated kits, and you won't be able to beat the flex. you'll have the sickest rig around, with the highest quality parts

I have to agree with Unlimited, if you want disgusting flex then go with Clayton. I have never seen nor heard from anyone who wasn't overly satisfied with the kit.

That is crazy, but cool too! They state that a retro fit kit for a YJ starts at 60K.

what do you want, a good website or a good lift kit? Clayton has plenty of pics and info regarding TJs. Are you not finding it or what?

Personally I think the best quality lift kits are in this order:
1. Clayton Off-road (lifetime warranty against breakage)
2. T&T Customs (LCG approach)
3. Gen-Right
4. Rubicon Express

The best systems are engineered - not marketed, so their websites may not be super fancy, and they might not have glossy catalogs, but give them a call and they can tell you very detailed info.

You might look into AiRock springs too. www.offroadonly.com. You could run any long arm kit of your choice, add AiRock springs and have one heck of a capable rig.

after looking at TNT customs i decided that i dont like the Y link in the front. So Far I think the teraflex LCG Max Is the way to go.

ive always liked the rockkrawler
5.5 X FACTOR PLUS LONG ARM SYSTEM
http://www.rockkrawler.com/

but havent seen to much real world reviews on them besides the great reviews in magazines There kit combined with a nice set of coil overs seem like a good combo

I'm rockin' an LCG and recommend it to all that ask. It hasn't let me down yet and suits my needs well. Easy install too.
