New Rough Country Long Arm Kit?

So tonight in my random search of jeep parts I stumbled upon the new Long Arm upgrade kit from rough country. I was just wondering if there was any feedback on this kit yet as Iam looking to go long arm soon and $899.99 is one tough price to beat.

Here is a site with a little cheaper price on the long arm upgrade.

ROUGH COUNTRY Jeep TJ Long Arm Upgrade kit For 97 To 06 PN 663U

I know in the RC long arm thread the RC person says to contact him for a good price. Don't know what kind of price that is. I will give him a shot first and see what he qoutes me.

You have a point there. Never thought of it that way.

His website pricing is wrong and has been contacted. If he sends any orders over for these kits until his pricing has change they will not be shipped. When you sign on as a RC distributor you have to advertise the same pricing as us and everyone else that sells it.

thats how it should be with everything so that a companies customer service sells the product not the undercutting.

While you are here RCEXTREME. Any chance that kit would work with your 2.5"SL, which is what i have now. Im looking to build a flexy LCG TJ. I read that its for the 4-6" or what not. Just curious on your input. Since the price there is about the same as a complete Short arm package.

This kit will not work with the 2.5. But we are currently building a kit that will work.

Sweetness. Ive been holding off building adjustable short arms for mine. Was hoping to find a bolt on long arm that would work. Im going for a LCG build on my DD. Any idea on when they will be available?

Rock Krawler makes a completely bolt on long arm kit also for the TJ.

Key point of what i want is for use on 2.5" to 3.5" suspension left. The one from rockcrawler falls into the 4+ category from what i saw.


Went back and found what i think is a kit for less lift but the 2300 dollar price tag gives me heart burn.

You can get the Rock Krawler LA upgrade only kit (around $1700 through a vendor on JF) and add your own springs for a custom lift size. Just an option of course. Also you must specify the bolt on version as they primarily make weld on kits.

I thought that it was always better to have the upper control arms higher than the lower. In this kit they are the same height in the rear. Doesn't that screw up (greatly increase) the anti-squat?

You get what you pay for. RC has cut corners on purpose to provide a cheaper LA kit that is a bolt in. They are targeting a specific buyer and their kit can't really be compared to higher end LA kits.
