i've asked this on another web site, does anyone out there have any first hand experience with the Frankenlift? my ride is an 05 rocky mountain renegade. 500+ miles a week commuting occasional off-roading any comments?

You have came to the right place, some of the people here tested it long before it hit the market as a kit.

I don't have the lift yet but many other people do. I will tell you right now they love the lift.



Planing on ordering my lift this month.

Tons of guys have experience with it on this board. It has been tested and tested some more. It is the third lift I've run on my rig and it is by far the best. Awesome!

For occasional offroading and excellent on road manners also check out Rusty's coil lift. But for max flex and offroading performance the Frankenlift can't be beat.

It's absolutely positively the best lift out there. I've had it on my '05 KJ Sport for about a month now. The ride around town and on the highway is better than stock, there's very little add'l body roll on turns, and a big improvement in off-road handling. A lot of guys here have 20K, 30K or more miles on their rigs and I haven't seen any complaints posted.

BTW, if you're driving 2,000 miles a month, don't forget to consider the impact on your mileage. The lift and the Goodyear MT/R tires knocked about 10% off my highway mileage.

I just installed this lift on my 05 Rocky Mountiain last weekend. I love it!
As you have already read. It is the best out there for your KJ. I did a side by side comparison to another lift someone bought and lets just say the Frankenlift is the way to go.

If you have any questions about the install on the Rocky Mountain PM me and I will be happy to explain anything.

Again if you want the best, always use this site as well as others, and get the Frankenlift. It will not disappoint you.

thank you everyone for your input! sounds like a unanimous endorsement! :D this past friday, i had 235/70/16 revos installed, so i'll have to keep an eye on gas milage changes. u think the lift itself will lower gas milage as well? hmmmm..... thanx again, bob

The gas mileage shouldn't change due to the Revo's because you replaced with stock size (unless you had smaller tires in the first place).

I have the Frankenlift and am very happy with it. It is my second lift and I installed it almost a year ago. I have not had any problems with it and wouldn't consider changing for any other lift on the market at this time.

The Revos also have a pavement friendly tread which helps. The lift will affect your mileage because of increased wind resistence, but it should be minimal...it's not enough to not lift it IMO. In my case, most of the hit came from swapping to the 245/75 MT/Rs. They're twice as heavy as the stock rubber and have way more rolling resistence.

I was told by the fine folks at All J that it could be a couple of weeks before my Frankenlift ships. That's okay. I can wait a bit for the best!

It was a special edition jeep came out with. They offered it as an option on the Liberty, Wrangler, and Grand Cherokee this year. There were about 5,000 Rocky Mountain Edition Liberties made this year. They were based on the Renegade X platform. So yes they are a Renegade Liberty. they have a different center console accent, premium fender flairs and they have JEEP embroidered in their seats and a special decal on the back tailgate. They also came with a sunroof.

And they removed the cool renegade bumper-mounted foglights, unfortunately. They did keep the flat hood from the renegade, however. It's a good look.
