Looks like the shocks are an extra $300. But hey, you get a free hoodie!

That there is a complete kit, and your gonna love it. rides great on and off road and flexes very well.

I love the gen 2 quick discos it comes with.


Check DC4wd.com for the same kit with the D shaft and SYE, he has really good prices.

I have that exact kit and bought it from the same place, although the price has gone up some since I bought mine. Jason is good people though. Be sure to call them when you decide to order it, they might have unlisted deals on shocks... if your not down for $300 worth of shocks, I cheaped on mine and got the RE Twin Tubes for $150... although the ride is a bit rough on bumpy roads, it's not as bad as some would say. It still rides very nice on the highway.

This is a VERY complete kit. All 8 control arms(adjustable uppers), adjustable front track bar, rear bracket, SYE and drive shaft(needed with this lift). Although I would suggest getting an adjustable track bar for the rear for proper alignment. Other that, I'm very happy with mine so far.

Here is my TJ on just 32's... I could have went for 33's but I didn't want to stress the D35 too much.

ive been pretty impressed with my turdy 5 so far. Im running an open carrier with 3.73s and ive pounded on it for almost 3 years with no problems yet (knock on wood)

Ive heard tons of horror stories and have helped a guy rebuild one on the trail,but he had a ARB and was flogging it. I stay off the skinny pedal as much as possible

Me too, and even though it only has 62k original miles, I still believe they were all built differently.

Excellent tire on and off road. I ran them full time, which included regular 500 mile trips, and they held up quite nicely for me.

now out here the old style BFG MTs dont cut it. Now they wear pretty good but in the snow they dont fare to well and the side wall puncture is common. the BFG is a good tire but theres many MTs now that in my opinion are better.

im running those trxus MTs with great success. my next set ill be running dyna beads for balancing. the only coomplaint i have is Intercos lack of quality control. I have 8oz on one side of a couple tires. thats ridiculous for a 33'' mt.

I couldn't tell you. I sold it with them on it. I racked up some miles on it before i did though, and they were showing no signs of rapid wear. They guys that I talked to before I got a set all were very happy with how long they lasted them though.
