hey man, welcome. there are a ton of posts regarding lifts. prob over 2 dozen. Iv heard on here alot of guys useing the Rock Krawler lifts. Metal cloak is a great product as well and their customer service is epic!
Just remember the search button is your best friend. and if you can find reviews on google on the interested lift, that might help too... good luck with your search and have fun with your build.

Nick, I use the word AWESOME a lot.

To be honest. If a guy says don't waist time or money. Just walk away. Remember! It's your jeep. Do what you want. But myself stick with what guys really recommend. A lift and the right gear is worth some bills man.

Bigworm36 used to have a Rusty's lift for about 8 months. One of the worst out there. We swapped it out for a rock krawler.

Between previous dealings with Rusty's and that being a short radius style arm lift, I don't need to run it to recommend avoiding it.

I'm not impressed with what Rock Krawler has to offer either, but would take them over Rusty's without hesitation or a second thought.

WOW, a radius arm kit that uses the factory length arms... I don't think I have ever seen that before. Crazy.

Short-arm radius setup?

It would be difficult to design something conceptually worse than that. I'm not going to give you a deep dive on suspension geometry, but....just don't. Listen to the collective voice on here unless you like buying everything twice.

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

I don't know too much about their kit, but I am running their springs. I've run with the front for about 3 years now. and have just gotten the rear springs n everything is doing great.

Um, run as fast as you can away from the Rusty's lift!!!! Do as you like though but rest assured that you will be one sad puppy when you decide you made a huge mistake. Good luck man.
