Default Rusty's ZJ long arm upgrade

So now that I got my zj, I'm looking at what kit to buy.

I know Rusty's has a bad name in a lot of stuff, but their kit is pretty well priced at $1350.00 for front and rear. I want to pair this w/4" coil springs. I'll get my own shocks and track bars, etc.

I've searched this product and not found much. And only met 1 guy who had them on his ZJ and he liked them.

Any REAL WORLD HANDS ON experience??

i like it, its a decent kit.

i installed one on a customers ZJ not to long ago, using rustys coils, and track bar.

rode great, and seemed to have a fare amount of suspension travel.

Thanks for replying!

I am glad to hear that. My xj had a rusty's lift and it flexed great! for short arms. The coils were nice and soft.

I've really only heard complaints about the track bars and bushings. And sometimes customer service.. but who really knows.

How did you like the way the mounting system is designed and ease of installation?

I know RC is coming out w/a 4" kit here soon too. And it looks good.
