4.5 Rubicon Express Long Arm Trilink rear, RE Monotube shocks, RE Rear drive shaft, and 33x12.5-15 BFGs. I've had the same BFGs before and I wish I would have gone with Goodyear MTRs. I don't know if I would do the Trilink again, It is about $400 extra. I had to have an exhaust built to fit because the Trilink puts a control arm where the muffler should go. The kit was easy to install, a little cutting and welding. The instructions lack a little but anyone with a little experience can figure it out. I welded the rear shock brackets on too high and bottomed out the shocks and ruined them. Rubicon Express was good enough to replace them even though they didn't have to because it was my fault. It handles well on the road and great off road. I have a vibration in the front end between 50 and 65 and I'm not sure where it is coming from but it may not be the lift. One thing that really impressed me was the quality. The one picture is a comparison of my RE front lower control arm next to the stock lower control arm. If I had it to do again I would buy RE again.

Scout, can you please add your spec's?

Helps others know you have a 5.5" RK lift and not a 6.5'' or 4.5'' RK lift.

Distorted,
I put those lift blocks on tonight, and as expected, the alignment has a lot of toe-in. The vibration between 50 and 65 is gone. rides and drives great but I really have to adjust the steering or I'm going to get some serious tire wear. I'm going to keep a bit of toe-in and maybe that will keep the vibes away.

It's in my signature.

But...for reference, it's a RockKrawler 5.5" LA with TeraFlex 3/4" spacers. The shocks are the run-of-the-mill RK shocks that came with the suspension and they work perfectly fine. Tires and wheels are 36x13.5x16" Interco Irok Radials mounted on 16x8" Champion Beadlocks.

As I've mentioned before, I still love everything about my LA kit.

RK 5.5" LA (Stretched 10 inches with LJ Rear Arms and RK Coil Buckets)

37" Comp Claws

And I love everything about it. I'm at 104" now and the only thing I want to do further is stretch the front a few inches.

For the Trek TNT LA, try looking on the colorado4x4.org site I believe. I think theres a few there running them and I think that the Treks crew is on that board as well.
