  • Tj Lift Info

    so heres the deal, im a begginer mechaninc with minimal tools. any idea of a website or catalog or something that can help walk me through the instalation of a 3 1/2" rubi express lift for my 01 tj? id rather save $1000 and do it myself


    edit: and once i get this 3 1/2 inch on along with 33's, if i do moderate, but not crazy 4 wheelin, will i really need a sye? i know that its a good thing to have, but im a poor college student, and that will have to come later. and someone said something about having to get a longer driveshaft as well?

    p.s. its the superflex kit if that helps at all

    If you are ordering the superflex kit, get the SYE. The lift will come in about 4.5" of lift at first and then settle to about 4" and you will want that SYE if you are doing any kind of wheeling at all. Otherwise your driveshaft will pop off at the transfercase.

    And the lift will come with a set of instructions. It is pretty easy to lift the jeep, as long as you have some general idea of suspensions (like where springs and shocks go.)

      There's 2 good write ups, like Lilryry said, its pretty basic. Lay out all the parts, figure out where they go, get your tools together and a plan for how to do it, and take your time

      Good luck

        Check around for install pricing......I found a local shop here in Fort Worth, TX that will do the RE Super Flex install for a flat $350! I think $1000 bux seems awfully high.....

          I agree with pspence I also think $1000 is a lot of money. I am going to have a complete 4" lift - kit, exhust, driveshaft, shock, and tires all for $550 here in FL
          So look around for a better price...................

              just do it yourself, then not only do you have the satisfaction of building your own rig but you'll also know exactly what went into the jeep. also when the time comes that you break something you'll have a general knowledge of how to fix it. instead of just being stranded on the trail.

                  Go to RE's website. Find your lift kit (click on it). There should be a link to the instructions. You will need Adobe reader if you don'.t have it yet

                    Hey Wrangler I just noticed you lived in Folsom CA. I am sure you may know but Rubicon Exspress is of Sunrise and Hwy 50. Go stop by there and ask for intructions.

                      I did my own lift, 4" superlift, and I am not a mechanic at all. Just good at following directions. The directions called for 8-10 hours and it took me about 20 total. mostly due to rusted bolts. But as my DD I wanted to take my time. But as others stated, you will know alot more about your rig when finished and have the satisfaction of knowing that YOU built it!!
