You guys need to post your pictures after your mods. I am waiting impatiently for my 3.25" RC lift.

DITTO!

I PM'd Jeffrey to see if he knows how long it will be.

Are you adding BOTH sets of spacers or are you only doing one set to "level" it out?

I just got an e-mail back from Jeffrey and he said that they will receive the back ordered shocks on Feb. 27th. Ship out the next day. I will probably install the entire kit except for the rear spacers. My Rubicon sits about an inch lower in front and that is with the hard top on and stock bumpers and no winch. Looking into the Hanson bumpers and Warn winch.

If a 3/4" spacer will work, does anyone think that an 1/4" inch will make a difference? Do I need longer break lines or anything to put it on?

I asked Jeffrey at RC and he said new front brake lines are not necessary on the 3.25" lift. I don't know about higher than that.

I just got a PM from him too about the 27th! I can't wait.
I wasnt planning on running a winch but I do want my jeep to be level... I may just add the spacers up front. Not sure yet!

Maybe I'll see if I can just cut them down a bit, haha.

ordered the 3.25" kit.

ok so i ordered the 3.25 kit this afternoon. should be here by friday. question...i have jks quick disco's on my stock height TJ right now. they are for 0-2" lift. does anyone know if they will work after installing this kit? in other words, if i max out the disco's, will the swaybar be 10* like it's supposed to be? or will it be lower than it should?

also, how many of you drilled the hole where the front trackbar mounts? im kinda scared of drilling that hole.

cant wait till the ups guy shows up again, my rims should be coming this week too.

Jeffrey is a very busy person today. I finished ordering my 2.5" kit from him and it is definitely a big savings over the online store.

I had planned on ordering the 4" X kit, but some one close to me convinced me to save my money for other things. :P

It depends on your backspacing. See my profile. I run 33x12.5 mud tires on just 2" BB spacers from teraflex. And stock shocks. The ride is a little bumpier then stock. Cause of the stock shocks being so flexed out (2" remember) but of course my Tire PSI is at 26 all around. So that helps the ride, just not the fuel mileage.

A lot of people run there stock sway bar end links, if you max your discos out it will work ok, but it will be better with the longer ones. You might want to try to sell the ones you have to someone on the site and buy new ones. Longer rear JKS end links are only $40, wouldn't hurt to pick those up.
