So i have had this kit over a year and wheel it a ton! very good in the rocks and mud! rund great on the highway at 75 plus. Very easy to install just have all the tools needed and check the kit part list before, i was missing a small part that was overnighted great help from Rubicon express! The only problem i had was that i had to modify the OEM tranfer case skid to work! As well as the crossmember doesnt work with all aftermarket skids. Rock hard makes the only trany and oil pan skid that will bolt up! no problem with the joints as it is a 4 link and has less stress on them!

Bought this product after lots of research comparing short to long arm. Along with this i bought cv driveshaft and sye. Originally wanted to install myself but didnt have the time and all required tools so i ended up having 4wheelparts in santa ana, ca install it for me and i had them regear 4:10 f and 4:11 r as well. Running 33x12.50 goodyear duretrac and bilstein 5160 series. I have taken my jeep out 1 time since install and performed great and very happy with purchase and install. Ride quality is a lot better than stock. Great articulation!

Cadillac of long arm kits
I recently had this lift installed on my 2006 jeep wrangler rubicon. I put a lot of research into this lift before I purchased it. I was informed that it was the Cadillac of long arms. I was going to do the install myself but I lacked tools and experience and was advised not to do the install myself due to the difficulty. The lift compliments the jeep giving it a clean, yet aggressive appearance. Once I drove the jeep off the line from the shop, I noticed that my steering was loose and it wondered a bit. I was informed that during the first few months, the springs would would need setting and cause tweeking until it finally rested. Once my suspension settled and I had it aligned and readjusted, it now drives better than stock. The few times that I have had my jeep offroad since my install have been great. The articulation is insane. I went from a complete bone stock Rubi to the 5.5 re extreme la kit and I can now reach trails that I never could before. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and recommend this kit from weekend warriors to comp wheelers.

You will have to reroute your right side rear parking brake cable. Other than that the lift is great. highly Recommend the SYE kit and Rear Driveshaft
How do I specify that I have the Dana 44 rear axle to make sure I get the correct u-bolts?

The best course of action about the Rubicon Express 4.5" Extreme-Duty Leaf Spring Lift Kit with Twin Tube Shocks to get the correct U-bolts for a Dana 44 rear axle would be to contact our customer service center @ 877-474-4821
