Anybody ever heard of or have experience with this Rocky Road soa kit??
It sounds like a pretty good set-up, but it IS the companies website and they sure aren't going to make it look like garbage so I'm just looking for any personal experiences or opinions on this.
Thanks for the feedback man, Customer service is a pretty big deal to me so I'll definitely take that into consideration. I'm just a little sketchy about the whole bolt on thing, doesn't seem right for a heavy use trail, rock, mud pit rig but I'm no expert either.

DON'T F#*KING DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I bought one(bolt-on SOA kit)and have been sorry ever since. Got to start, they(RRO)took forever to ship the kit. Once received, pieces were missing. Contacted them(RRO)and they said that's not possible. After several arguments they finally shipped(they tried to get me to pay for shipping, again)the missing pieces. All parts accounted for, installation time. Front went together OK, had to change the order of installation from their instructions. Hopped around to the rear, and the nightmare began. The rear perches key off the exsisting factory perches. It is impossible to get the required pinion angle with their plan. Also, I had to grind 1/4" off the perches just to get them to slip over the axle tubes, as per the instructions. I ended up welding the rear perches in place, after I cut more than a 1" off the front of their perch to get enough pinion angle. If you're hell bent on a bolt-on kit, look at Rubicon Express kit. Far and away better than Rocky Road Outfitters. I gotta tell you, you'll be better off just buying some perches and going from there.

I agree very poor customer support. I wanted to order a set of font springs. I wanted the ones they used in the pics of there soa kit (military wrap ones). Talk to order personal in the phone he told him what I wanted. A week later I get my springs all excited. Till I open them they sent me stock yj springs. Called them up and told that's not what I order. They told me that they don't sell the springs in that pic there springs from another company, but wouldnt say what one. I was told I could ship the springs back (me paying shipping)and get store credit I ended up selling them on CL to recover most of my money.
@2xs don't do it buy the Tera flex cross over set up. I bought just the knuckle and built my own drag link and tie rod. A whole lot stronger.

Your best bet is NOT to buy any of these so-called all inclusive kits. Anyone will tell you that they aren't. Try to find someone that has already been through this kind of lift and get advice from them. There are several threads on this forum that deal just with SOA lifts. I built my own this past year out of E-bay parts & knowledge from others. Whatever these kits cost you might as well figure on spending twice that to get it done right.
