    all lifts created equal?

    thinking about a 4.5 inch rubicon express long arm or a full traction 4 inch lift, what should I watch out for when looking around for a lift in general? 03 rubicon

    I've been told that the spherical ball joints on the RE Superflex (or whatever they call it) don't do so well in our salty road environment. Then again, others say they're fine, as long as you grease them often.

    So I installed the flux capacitor but the Jeep just won't do 88 mph.

    affording is a different story. CHase banks is offering a .99 + interest rate for 6 months, if I pay it off before then it's same as cash

    I know full traction has a 6 inch bolt on kit that is supposed to be good

    I'd buy a RE kit... Only complaints i've heard are like others have said, keep it greased -- but that goes for any kit.
