Raising the bar once again, Rubicon Express brings the Off-Road industry a great performing, low cost suspension system for the Wrangler JK. Rubicon Express brought the first long arm suspension for the JK Wrangler to the market back in 2006, setting an industry standard that all other suspension manufacturers strive to reach to this day. Rubicon Express uses their expertise to create an affordable, budget minded suspension package that is packed with impressive features and provides outstanding performance, creating a smooth ride on road and on the trail. The control arms and other components are retained. This suspension will allow the use of 33" or 35" tires and has been engineered to easily upgrade to either a 3.5" - 4.5" Super-Flex or 3.5" - 4.5" Extreme-Duty Long Arm system with the purchase of additional components.
I wasn't sure which lift to get so I went with what 4wheelparts (Portland) recommended, the 3.5" on 35's. They did the install and it turned out perfect!!!! I couldn't be happier. It looks great, perfect height, especially with the 35's. Not too tall, just perfect. It still works well as a daily driver, and is more that capable to handle most off road adventures. I've thoroughly tested it in mud, sand and rocks and it's great. Thanks Austin (Portland,OR shop).

I've had this lift for 18 months and I totally love it. Rides great very comfortable not stiff at all. I have an aftermarket bumpers front/rears/tire carrier with 35" tires and winch. The only thing I would suggest especially if you are going to have the set up like mine is to get the .50 leveling kit TER1954105 so the rear evens with the front. I'm about to put the leveling kit because I think my rear is sagging a bit from the tire.

3.5" Standard Rubicon Express Lift
The lift can easily be installed in a garage. The instructions were fairly detailed. There were a few times there could have been better pictures or instructions. The worst part of the installation was knocking out or cutting out the tabs in the control arm brackets. You will most likely need a really good carbide cutting bit for a die grinder. This will make the installation much easier and faster.

Good product, Rides great
Really easy install and it rides great. It gave me almost 5" of lift without aftermarket bumpers.
I have a 2015 2 door and want to go with a 3" or 3.5" lift but i have heard several comments about drivshaft clearance. would i need to upgrade front or rear driveshaft? also with this lift what else extra would you recommend or need?

All 2012 and newer Jeep JK Wranglers will require aftermarket front and rear driveshafts. As for additional parts, we highly recommend extended stainless steel brakes lines. Thank you for the question.

No driveline modifications are required. This kit can be installed in a weekend with basic hand tools.

Do i need to order a new drop pitman arm for this kit
jay from on
No drop pitman arm is required when installing this kit. Jeep JK's only require a drop pitman arm at 5.5" or taller lifts.
