.... as in quality. They really spent their time designing this stuff and the products show. If you had it in your hand you'd be saying the same thing. All the parts are very solid and very heavy!

There are some kits, that when you look at the control arms that are included are very small. (I hope this is what you are talking about AZ). The RE are tubular and are big, so are RK. They are also made from tubular steel, not boxed (square tube), and this keeps them from twisting. You get what you pay for.

^ - Yah, they are pretty much over-built. Much bigger/thicker than most of the "budget" kits.

I decided on that kit because you got it. You know a lot more than me, and I've heard a lot of good things about it. You're my muse...

Ok - now go paint it Teal. You won't be accepted until its teal.

But really - I think you'll like it. I need to take it out and test it still.

What size are your tires? I'm gonna guess 33s

And I'm not painting it teal. Besides, if I did you'd just go out and get that orange and I'd be all alone again. I like the red...

D35 + 33" Tires + 3.07's + Large Highway Hills =

Plus the 33" tires are maybe .5 taller... and that really didn't warrant all the extra money I would have spent.

Rides great! I'm running my BFG A/T's @ 26psi and its a smooth ride. Bumps are a bit harsh, but its what I expected from all the reviews of the TwinTube shocks.

Remote res shocks are mainly for a long or fast travel environments. The res helps cut down on heat that is generated from the movement of the fluids.

I was going to get the ft kit but don't think I want it know. What do you guys think is the best bang for the buck 3"-4" lift.

Not to rub it in but I got my kit less than 24hrs after I ordered it. It's sitting in the garage now, going in on Sunday!

I saw those kits too. I never heard any one talking about them though. Any info ont hem is welcome. BD is pretty cheap. I'm planing on RC II. If i'm going to go w/ another kit it will be long arm so for now i just want something to get me riding higher.

add..
i don't think its worth me getting a 800-900 bucks kit now and then later replacing it with another higher end kit.

I mean, you aren't going to be doing anything kind of serious offroading so the RC kit will probably be just fine.

None after the lift. I'm hoping to go do a little bit of light wheelin' tomorrow. I'll be sure to take some.
