I have the RC 3.5 stage II lift kit on my 2010 Rubi unlimited. I had some issues with it right after install but I called RC and they were all over it. They shipped me new springs and that fixed my issues. I also added the dual steering stabilizer from RC and really like the way mine rides. I am running 20 inch wheels with a 35" tire and have no issues. I am adding a 1.25 RC bl in a few weeks as well. No complaints for what you get from RC for the money!
Anyone else have experience with this lift. It sure is nice to call a company and talk to an American for once.
just wondering if it'll make my 33's on my unlimited look small. Hmm.
Probably gonna pull the trigger on this lift this week.

Im going to be installing the new Rough Country Stage II 3.5" lift this weekend. Ill be doing a thorough write up about the install. There will be plenty of pictures and ill get pre and post clearance and lift measurements. Ive see about 10 of these lifts and the new shocks not the 2.2 shocks have been getting tons of positive reviews. And for the price point and the warranty you can never go wrong!!!! Watch the forums on saturday evening or sunday morning the write up will be there!!!!!
I have the RC track bar with brace and dual steering stabilizer. I have blown a bushing on the track bar and had to replace it the second trip out wheeling. Removed the RC brace, too much bump steer for my 3” lift. Returned it back to stock level and bump steer went away. The RC dual steering stabilizer shocks were hitting my tie rod at full steering and I have removed it and went to a flip shock kit. All and all I wished I would have saved a little more money and bought other parts. Just my 2 cents...
Ok, lets get this thread back to life. Rough Country did a lot of R&D in developing the RCX 3.5" Series II kit. Now that it has been a few years I would like to hear some feedback from those who posted early about this kit. What I got from this thread is that the kit is worth it but needs extend brake lines. Other forums seem to more positive about RC products than this forum.
Sooooo... let here from everyone who actually used or has been around this kit and can provide first hand experience.
The shocks are pretty bad and didn't last long. I am currently doing a coilover setup instead. The shocks are all blown but the springs havent sagged that I can tell. My favorite RC product to date is the discos, I have cut them and made them work for my AEV high steer and haven't had any issue with them, outside of those..I'm ready to move on from the 3.5" II kit.
While owning the 3.5" II, I added Rock Krawler front lower adj arms, RK 3 link rear, Crown extended brake lines, RK coil correction wedges, stopped using their drop pitman arm, track bar brackets...etc... to make it more tolerable.

I have since added front and rear adjustable track bars. Rear from JKS and front from Rock Solid Performance, along with the sector shaft brace. I didn't like the track bar brackets which is why I added the adjustable track bars. I also was able to remove the drop pitman arm with the front adjustable, which improved steering feel considerably.
If I were to do it again, I probably would do something different.
