Long Arm Kit for an LJ (rock krawler)

I'm thinking about selling my Rock Krawler Long Arm kit on my 2004 LJ. Just seeing if there is a market for it???

This is what I have ($2,150):

LJ X Factor Plus Long Arm Upgrade

Less the cradle (and tie in) which can be purchased new for $190.

Many consider dumping their mid arm for a long arm. What are you considering switching to?

You crazy. If it ain't broke don't fix it. At least not until after it breaks.

Did you break your stock suspension?

or your wheels?

or your tires?

or your bumper?

or your rockers?

Yeah, he parked next to me on Saturday. We were joking about how I should get rid of the stock tires...

Nice! I have to admit, I was talking to Stan the other day about upper CA's. It was in the back of my mind: Upper CA's? Or replace with long arm?

I have to admit, I really do like how my jeep drives on the highway and handles offroad. From what I read, that is due to the long arms. It seems like where ever I point the jeep, it goes...
