Ordered this in May 2020, and due to COVID shutting down Rubicon Express, I received this in September (5 months later) - hey, it's a pandemic. Roll with it.Install was straightforward, the only thing to stress is that you should be patient with removal of the rear leaf spring bolts. Heat, penetrating oil, and a cheater pipe are your friends.I replaced the rear shackles (not included in the kit, but pick them up - highly recommended), as well as the rear brake line(s) . . .my XJ has almost no rust, but the connection to the flexible line on the axle just snapped off. Not mandatory, but also a win is swapping out the XJ's front brake lines with stock YJ lines (they are longer than stock XJ ones, and cheaper than aftermarket 'braided' ones). If you do, get the brake line to caliper washers, 2 for each banjo bolt, as well. I also went with an Iron Rock Offroad adjustable track bar, so I avoided drilling out my track bar bracket axle mount.Overall, a solid kit, well built. Only drawbacks: (1) The 'swaybar disconnects' are not 'quick disconnects,' but will allow for a quick release mod at a later date. (2) The rear stainless braided brake line axle block is rather cheap metal, and stripped easily, so go easy on torquing the axle's hard brake lines. I had a spare YJ stock flex brake line, which is just about the same size, so I wasn't in too bad a pickle.An incredible save by Rubicon Express, though, needs to be mentioned. The rear shocks were shipped without the hardware needed to mount the shocks to the unibody. I called RE, and they had a hardware package shipped to my place by the next day. Solid folks, and very pleased by their response.

More economical than the Super-Flex 3.5" this system is also capable of fitting 31" tires. Note: Installing a SYE and CV driveshaft is recommended when lifting any vehicle 3.5" or higher.
