Rubicon Express Jeep Wrangler TJ Lift Kit - Express Jeep Lift

If you own a '97-'06 Jeep Wrangler TJ then you know that there's no shortage of suspension systems in the aftermarket. With long-arm upgrades, coilover conversions, and wheelbase stretch kits all the rage these days, it can be a little overwhelming for someone who isn't looking to go all-out but still wants a quality suspension lift.

Luckily, Rubicon Express has a 3.5-inch Super-Flex suspension system to increase your Jeep's trail performance at an affordable price. The Super-Flex system is an all bolt-on suspension that sits just a touch above the company's entry-level 3.5-inch kit. To fine-tune each suspension, Rubicon Express pulls from its years of real-world testing both on and off road to dial in the coils and shocks specifically for the '97-'06 Wrangler.

Since we were looking for some new legs for our '97 Wrangler, we headed down to Off Road Evolution in Fullerton, California, to strap on the 3.5-inch Super Flex Kit. While the Evo installation pros were able to knock the lift install out in a just few hours, we suggest setting aside a solid day if you're working out of the home garage.

'Con Ride
What better way to test out our new Rubicon Express suspension system than on the Rubicon Trail? After a few days of on-road suspension testing we dropped the air pressure down to 10 psi, disconnected the sway bar, and headed out on the 'Con for a weekend wheeling trip. Though we scrapped and banged a few times along the trail, the overall ride and performance of the suspension was excellent. For a short-arm kit the travel was great and the Jeep consistently felt stable and in control.
