Rancho 3.5" Rockcrawler Lift Kit - Reviews

Customer Rating Rancho Springs may be problem
Date: Jul 09, 2010
Reviewer: A User from (Reno, NV)
I have Rancho Rock Crawler kit installed on a 2006 Jeep Rubicon/LJ. Nice and soft however the springs and Rancho 9000 shocks don't seem to work very well together. I drive a lot on the street and to keep the vehicle from swaying back and forth I need to stiffen the shocks up which makes for a very harsh ride. In the soft shock setting suspension seems very loose on the road. I will be replacing the spring and shocks with Old Man Emu compontes and see if that solves the problem. This switch was caused by a 40MPH death wobble from the front end after hiting a small pot-hole.

To be honest I have had the kit on for about 3 years. I have never been able to really adjust the ride correctly. Also, moving to NITTO tires seems to really bring out the harsh ride. All in all it is a good kit and it has never really failed me.

Customer Rating Don't Go With Any Short Arm
Date: May 18, 2010
Reviewer: A User from (Marin County, CA)
I bought this kit it has good flex requires winch and bumper\ spare combo to get it to ride nice. Driveline vibration isn't solved by lowering the transfer case be expected to buy the sye kit and cv driveshaft. If ur looking to wheel ur Jeep save for a long arm. The angles of the short arm give it a rough ride every little bump is harsh. Install took me alone 4 hrs if u can't do it urself, u shouldn't own a Jeep.

Customer Rating Rancho Rockcrawler on 98 TJ
Date: Oct 10, 2008
Reviewer: A User from (California)
I put the 2.5 rockcrawler lift on my 98 TJ back in '00. This was before the 3.5 version came out, but it is the same kit with different springs I believe. Ive driven rubicon, fordyce, deer creek and other pretty hard trails for 8yrs on the kit, its done awesome. Its a bit creaky now, but regular service seems to fix that. On road driveabiltiy is great. Its a good compromise if you dont want to pony up for a long arm kit, or if you want to stay relatively mild. Im combined mine with a 3" body lift to clear 35s, not a good idea. Now im going to a RE long arm, but for 8yrs and with 33" tire, the rancho lift was great. By the way, have a good installer do the work. 4WP in sacto did mine, it took them several tries to get it right, and i found that they had never done before, were using my vehicle to learn.

Customer Rating 2002 Sport Jeep, Rancho 3.5" lift
Date: Dec 01, 2006
Reviewer: A User from (Modesto, CA)
This is my very first jeep that im glad I got. After a buddy of mine bought a 06 X off the lot and convinced me to buy this jeep sence it seem "ready to go". This jeep came with a Rancho lift with the RS9000X adjustable shocks. I have no clear idea if its a 2, 2.5, 3, or 3.5 inch lift, all the rancho kits look same, from a buddy who has a rubicon express 3.5 or 4 inch lift? it sits about half inch lower off the bumpers... Anyhow, id say for buying something with a lift already on it its very decent. I havent seen much rancho stuff on the web anywhere nor any other jeeps with these kits. This kit is really sweet, little bit stiff but figures that comes with lifting a jeep. Shocks are fun to adjust i have them on the half setting for roading around. Even now im slaping my self in head because I want to go higher perhaps a real 4 inch lift or RE 4.5? we will see what happens , im happy with this kit!

Customer Rating Wonderful Lift!
Date: Aug 20, 2005

I expected to lose some handling and ride quality when I added a lift. This actually performs as well or better than the factory suspension. Be sure to get the adjustable rancho 9000's with the kit, they make all the difference in the world.
