Teraflex vs. Rubicon Express
 
I am looking to install a long arm lift kit on my 2003 Rubicon and have narrowed it down to 2 kits. One being the Rubicon Express 5" Extreme-Duty Long Arm System and the other being the Teraflex 4" Enduro LCG Suspension System. I was wondering what your opinions on those two lifts would be. Does anybody own either of those? RTI scores?

Teraflex 4" Enduro LCG or Rubicon Express 5" Extreme-Duty Long Arm????



Thanks

No one I've called (everyone) had any RE products in stock. They said RE stopped shipping new product months before closing.

Rubicon is a great lift but as others have stated pretty much impossible to get right now. Have you considered a TnT customs lift? Just a thought considering your one choice is pretty much unavailable right now. Teraflex is a great lift though to. So either way you wont be disappointed!

I wish that were true, but they shipped my kit a month or so before, and did a driveshaft swap two days before. We had no idea what was going on with them. Now I need bushings for my 03 and can't get them.:thumbdown:

Edit: I have been happy with the product on my 03 and I have not had the kit long enough on my 06 yet. Not complaining about the product, just the lack of being able to get parts.

RE bushings suck and i thought they went out of business anyway

Like you have hands on experience:thumbdown:Give me a break!:rofl:Why do they suck?Are you speaking of what you have heard on the bushings?Please tell!

I have had the RE 3.5 super flex lift over 6 years now and only had to replace bushings once (40k+ miles). I have been completely satisfied with it. Of course, I have only had it, so no others to compare it to.

That said, I am considering an upgrade to TNT or Clayton.

the RE arms I bought 2nd hand needed bushings twice in 20k...

And Ive seen a teralow take a dump first hand doing nothing impressive.

I rephrase for the thin skinned, there are much better options out there for the price.
