Rusty's 3" Advanced kit was patterned off a vehicle that Rusty built for himself. People would often ask what was on his personal Jeep TJ so we put together what we think is the most complete 3" lift package in the industry. The Rusty's Advanced kit will easily clear 33 inch tall tires while taking off-road performance to a whole new level!
Rusty's used computer modeling to design coil springs that will retain the factory ride while providing the increased ground clearance required for off-road use. Rusty's offers two front coil spring rates: 150-lb and a 180-lb. The 180-lb springs provide the same amount of lift as the 150-lb versions but provide the extra spring rate needed to handle the weight of heavy accessories, such as a big bumper, winch or a snow plow.
The front axle is secured with a pair of our beefy extended-length fixed lower arms and a set of our multi-holed fixed upper arms. These arms correct the wheelbase after being lifted and also bring caster back into proper specifications. The rear axle is properly located by a pair of our beefy extended lower control arms as well as a pair of adjustable rear uppers arms. This rear control arm set corrects the wheels base after being lifted, and the adjustable upper arms enable the pinion angle to be properly "dialed-in" so that driveline vibrations are eliminated. The front and rear axles are properly centered under the vehicle with a heavy-duty adjustable track bars, which eliminates the failure-prone factory track bar brackets.
A drop pitman arm is supplied to correct the steering geometry and to keep the tie rod ends from binding under extreme flex. Rusty's supplies Kevlar stainless steel brake lines for better braking performance and to provide the extra length needed for a suspension lift. Rusty's Front Sway Bar Disconnects are also included to unlock maximum flex off-road, yet they can be re-mounted in seconds for excellent on-road manners. A set of extended rear sway bar links correct the rear sway bar's operating angle. A complete set of Rusty's Performance Shocks round out this excellent suspension package, which has everything you need to lift your TJ safely and effectively.
To further enhance your TJ's off-road prowess, Rusty's has a variety of additional upgrades available. Adjustable upper and lower control arms for the front axle allow the caster and wheelbase to be "dialed in", while adjustable rear lower control arms do the same for driveline angles. These adjustable arms are also available with forged Flex Ends, which are specially designed suspension joints that allow the suspension a much greater range of movement without binding in their mounts as the axles articulate. Upgrading to Rusty's remote reservoir RX-300 shock absorbers is recommended for those who like to go fast in the rough stuff, while a replacement steering stabilizer will help smooth out the steering on the street.
