I have 33s right now in the garage. Gunna run those for a while. I'm kinda hoping the springs give me 4 inches as I've seen some people say. And if so 35s will be on my mind. :-)

I got a quote from him also, but after I got shocks and retaining clips and bump stops, Jason from KOR gave me a better deal. John got a quote from him for his lift and Jason beat it also....guess you got lucky!

Yeah I pretty much already had all that. The quote I got from kor was 6 dollars less. I wanted to help the smaller vendor out.

I got my 2.5 flex in the mail. Gonna add the other control arms as I go but needed to save a few bucks after the engine and knee fiascos.

X factor huh Justin? You didn't mess around.

I've also got some rigid duallys to put on. Then all I need is a winch and I can sit tight for a while. Hopefully....

Yeah I wanted a bad ass base to build off of. Still going to add all the rest as I save more. The deal I got pretty much gave me upper adjustable CA's for free. With free shipping.

As soon as I get it I'm going to start on it. I'm just nervous about a couple components and am not sure if I need a shop to just do the whole thing :-/

Congrats man, that will be sweet. I've been really happy with my rk stuff. I should have gone long arm from the start though.


Chuck, congrats man. Looks like lots of people starting to get some sweet gear ready for the summer wheeling season!

If you got adjustable uppers, I would get these washers to eliminate the slots,

Will you be doing your drive lines anytime soon?? Im not sure if I wanted to do the 2.5 x factor or the 3.5 xF It would be awhile before I can do drive lines.

I want to get the 15" Black Rock Vipers and 35" MT/R Kevlars.?
Will the 15s work on the JK?

Hey Dave, the more complete your kit is... IE, control arms, trackbars, and such the happier you will be. All of that will contribute to you being able to correct the geometry of your suspension/steering and flex better to put those tires on the ground. If you have some more questions on it before you pull the trigger ask away. I run a 3.5 RK Max Travel and I am very happy with it. Start a new thread on it so we can get out of this one and we'll see if we can't get you a good idea on what you think you need.

Hell yeah. The lift has been shipped. Hopefully the ups driver doesn't get caught in the "legendary" storm New York is supposed to get. I can't wait lol
