Now I just need to look at my warranty issues and make sure all is groovy there I suppose. Thank you all for the input and please dont stop feeding my drive and envy!
If you like a decent ride, don't use RC's shocks. I just yanked a set off of my TJ after 8 months and replaced them with OME NitroSport shocks. Much better.

...a perfect DD setup that should still maintain your BADASS status.

They appear on craigslist/eBay on a regular basis. No modifications needed and they will give it more of a badass look. (We did agree we can say badass, right?)
That is a very familiar setup!

...surprised i was given 14 and 55 springs with a 2-dr w/ tow pkg...pretty squishy.

Your setup look sick and I have a silver JKU. Do you only have the RC 2.5" and nothing else? Did you get new controld arms or anything else under there? If that's all you did for under $400 that's rediculous. Also, what tires and wheels you got?

I will add to this one as well. I did the same on my ol ZJ, put a 2" OME spring lift on it, and it handled and rode much nicer than stock.

Dumped the puny, stock 20something" tires
2" OME springs
some nice adjustable shocks (forgot which kind they were, they were white with blue lettering )


I still see the old girl riding around town. Every time I do, I get a little :~(
It must be pushing 200k by this point
