|Yes sir finally competition for the Superlift
Back in the day I would not touch a rough country lift, ball joint spacers and all that junk....but they have really stepped up their game last 10 years or so
We have the RCX 6" drop bracket lift with cast spindles on my wifes 2007 FJ Cruiser, 35" tires, 4.56, ARB air locker....never an issue. The rough Country lift has been awesome.
One of the Forum vendors here on FR.com advertised this lift back in June, good price and very nice looking kit!
You can combine parts from this lift with some parts from BTF fabrication, ditch the torsion bars (coilover conversion) and really get a nice working 4x4 LONG TRAVEL suspension in the 98-11 ranger, 95-2001 Explorer, sport and sport trac.....the nice part is you can add parts as $$$$ allows....start with RC lift, then later uni ball UCA, then boxed long travel LCA with CV's and somewhere along the way ditch the factory torsion bar and shock setup and install some tabs, limiting straps, and threaded bodies of your choice. I hear 600-800 lb spring rates work best in the ranger/explorer with the heavier trucks (4 door explorer, big bumpers, winch, etc) using the 800#. Rangers are good at 650-750 depending...
Drool drool, come on lottery!!
