Rustys 4.5 Lift
 
I am interested in going with the 4.5 lift from Rustys Off Road for my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Does anyone have, or know anyone with this kit? I was curious to see how it does on and off road. Thanks, Justin

I've seen no report on Rusty's 4.5 WK lift on any forum.

If you feel lucky, be the guinea pig and get it, otherwise just stick with Superlift or BDS.

I believe Rusty's lift is a hybrid collection of SL front bits and Rusty's rear bits - the rear bits look to be an improvement over SL rear bits. The BDS lift also improves on the SL rear bits.

I have a Super Lift. Love the ride and off road it does well. The only problem I have with it is the rear lower control arm drop brackets - they can get hung up on the more difficult trails. I do tend to exercise my WK a bit more than most, so the drop brackets may not be an issue for you.

If I were to do it again I'd seriously consider BDS - they don't use the drop brackets.

i am having the same issues w/ my rear components. Front end has no problem clearing an obstacle then the rear hits. I am going to look into redoing the lower control arms in the rear but most likely not til next year when i have more time and money
