          For the 1987-1995 YJ Wrangler owner who wants a more aggressive level of vehicle lift for advanced off-roading, the Rubicon Express 4.5" Extreme Duty Lift Kit delivers it with the heavy-duty components you'll need for big wheel clearance and extreme levels of wheel articulation. 1987-1995 YJ Wranglers were never offered with sway bar disconnect assemblies that became optional equipment on newer JK Wranglers. This kit includes them should you wish to upgrade your YJ with this articulation-enhancing feature. Because when you're on the trails, wheel articulation counts as much as ride height does. More wheel travel means less body roll, and less body roll means a successful climb or descent. Tires belong planted on the ground as flat as possible, not spinning in the air freely as you struggle to climb out of a Jeep that landed on its side. Experienced off-roaders know that while it's easy to handle visible rises and drops, being truly prepared for extreme off-roading means preparing your vehicle with proper clearance and wheel travel, so holes hidden by grass or water won't make you you're your balance.

          Because tuning your vehicle's suspension is also a constant battle against noise, vibration, and harshness at speed, spacer pieces are made out of durable polyurethane. Unlike metal spacers, polyurethane cushions vibrations while retaining the ability to support the heaviest loads. And while they replicate the ability of rubber to absorb impacts, these polyurethane spacers won't degrade or crumble upon exposure to oil-based contaminants or the elements. Rubicon Express backs the durability of all components with a limited lifetime warranty against failure due to manufacturing defects.
