The Lift You WISH You Bought Instead~

Hey... Im just wondering if you were able to go back and purchase that lift you wish you had now.. What would it be? Say you bought Skyjacker bc it was cheaper than Rubicon Express, do you wish you could go back and why.

Right now i am looking at the Currie 4" w/AR.. im just wondering if this is a wise choice.

Thanks

Well, that would be the one that mrBlaine has yet to make available to the masses. That would, without a doubt, be the best lift one could put under a TJ.

it wouldn't be any bolt-on lift or "brand" lift.

a custom 4link front and rear with air shocks....etc etc

but then again my TJ isn't my dd and will hopefully soon have tons, 42s, and stretched with half-back and all the money that goes along with that.

I really like my RE long arm, but I might have tried the Tri-link rear and then do the rear spring re-locate (which I have done) and out board the rear shocks.

Or if really dreamin and had a ton of $$$ to spend, go with a Full Coil Over set up from Gen Rite with King bypass shocks and bumps.

I kind of wish I hadn't spent the $$$ on the RE Tri-Link...not that it's horrible, but I don't see that as the last lift I'll ever install...

I don't think it will ever happen though. Suspensions are so different. Best we can do is just ask for a piece of advice.

Bought an RC and am in the process of replacing it with a Currie w/AR. Wish I'd have just bought the Currie to begin with.

so do yall think going with the currie w/ar is best? This kit is at the top of my list...also considering RC and RE.. RC for price and RE for quality.. but im thinking i cant beat the Currie w/AR and for the price. its not too bad to me.
I just dont understand if it is a great kit.. then why are only a few running it .

I went with a Rock Krawler long arm and love it. It does everything I want it to do very well. The only thing I would do is ride/drive some Jeeps with coil overs and see it that would work for my application. Other than that, I am extremely happy with what I have done.

That kit along with some good shocks and a double-cardan(CV) driveshaft is hard to beat if you are staying short-arm and need the height. Currie also sells the driveshaft to fit the fixed-flange output on your Rubi t-case.

Check with Gerald from Savvy Offroad, username "provelogear" on the forum for pricing.
