Clayton Long Arm Suspension?

Ok, so I did lots of searching here and the only person I noticed running a Clayton suspension kit was snwchris with the 4" short arm kit. It appears that Chris loves it, but is anyone else running one of these kits? I am really interested in the long arm 5.5" lift, and have seen a couple of reviews online, but I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with one:

I use the long arm upgrade kit with about 4" lift. I did it mainly to get a better ride on and off road . I do like it alot . I still have short arms in the rear that are adjustable and flex. That along with OME shocks gives a great ride . I am still going to change to a different track bar and pitman to flatten out dragling and track bar angles to improve it more.

You won't find many people that will talk bad about the clayton hard arm kit. It is one of the best you can buy. I look at things differently than most. If I read about a problem people have with a specific product I can guarantee I will have that same problem. You don't read about problems with clayton's products. It is good stuff.

Thanks you guys, that is very helpful. I feel the same way Mr. Clifford, if there is a problem, I am sure to get it. I have a '97 TJ Sport that I recently purchased and I want to make sure I minimize my chances with problems. I was sold on the RE Extreme Duty kit, but the idea that the Clayton kit is welded on rather than bolted on is just great. Added bonus that the control arms come with Johnny joints, and not to mention the triangulated rear. Of course, this project is still a few months down the road for me, but I can wait. When I lift this, I only want to do it once.
