i am new to forums

as the title says I am new to online forums and not sure on what i can gain but a friend of mine is in the jeep world and he loves these forums so i figured what the h#ll i try it.

i have a 07 yellow fj with a 3" rough country lift 285 dick cepek fun country,
eclipse head unit and some other accessories. I like many other I know want a bigger lift and tires. I am torn between the fab tech and the rough country
and was wanting to hear the true opions of both

Thanks for all the help in advance

Re: i am new to forums

Welcome

Modding is definately a "love - hate" kinda thing.

Since you are new to forums, definately use the search tool. You will probably find your answers regarding the bigger lifts and tire scenarios. Going big requires much more research to do it right!

Good luck

Welcome to the fourms! This place is packed full of great resources to help you make educated decisions concerning your FJ.

I've personally seen two Rough Country 6" lifts in action but have no experience with the Fab Tech. If my memory serves me correct the big difference between the two kits is that the Fab Tech requires you to cut the cross member while the RC kit does not.

Why is that important? Well once you install the Fab Tech kit you're basically stuck with it. The RC kit can be taken back to stock by simply changing the parts back out. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but that's my understanding.

So it would be my suggestion to go with the RC kit if you're set on going with a 6" lift kit based soley on the retrofitting feature. Plus, the guys at RC are a great group of guys and a pleasure to be around.
