    Default Poll: Who makes the best lift kit?

    I am trying a poll. One of the other members suggested setting up a poll to see who makes a good lift. I like Full Traction and pretty much am going with a 6 in Long arm. It installs easy, it bollts on, and I like the fact that it has a true front four link. I am not too keen on R.E.'s radius arm in the front, that is pretty much a two link set-up. My opinion is that there seems like there is too much room for failure. I am sure that R.E. has that set-up that way for a reason, i.e. it works good, little problems, what ever. I personally don't like it.
    That's my 2 cents.

    I have no insight as to who makes the best lift kit. I picked Rubicon Express for my CJ, Not installed yet, and I also selected it for this poll.

    Once I get it installed, I may change my mind.

    I prefer RE. WOuld like it even better if I would have gotten OME shocks to go with it. RE shocks are a little stiff.

    I love my Rusty's "6" long arm. No problems and very stable. The jeep handles great and Rusty's has been great with other parts as well.

    Teraflex's LCG Max is a true 4-link up front as well.

    No track bar, front or rear, when it's all done.

    Downsides: Requires welding and is expensive.

    Upsides: Super stout components/ extremely complete system/ very flexible off-road/ handles well on-road.

    I have the pro comp 4" and am real happy with it, although it is not on the list....

    I have heard good things about the Rock Krawler, Rustys and the RE.

    I had a horrible time dealing with Rusty's. Bad customer service and thier parts that were supposed to bolt up needed redrilling. For the money I spent on that stuff, it ought to be easy as hell to put on. I am seriously discussed with thier customer service / tech department.
