the PSC gas tank skid nor the RE control arms are all that good....sell them on craigslist, make a profit, and save for better stuff.

In the case of the PSC tank skid, there isn't anything "wrong" with it, but there are much better options out now. The PSC skid adds unnecessary weight, and you actually lose ground clearance because it's added over top of your stock skid.

A far better option is the Savvy gas tank skid, which is much lighter, has a ton more clearance and comes with all new hardware. Most importantly it has the dimple required for the fuel pump - unlike many other aftermarket full replacement skids.

The RE arms...well their bushings flat suck. Well known issues, and probably one of the things that lead to RE's eventual demise. Procomp's parent company bought RE, and Daystar started making replacement bushings...but those with old RE arms usually only got a few months out of the RE bushings. Also due to construction, the flex joints aren't nearly as good as real Currie Johnny Joints.

Really to answer that question it would be best to know how you plan to use your jeep. There is alot of different grades of equipment and sometimes the best is more than you need, want or can afford. Unlimited is not wrong in what he says, but having aftermarket RE flex arms is better than stock and a PS gas tank skid is better than the stock one..Do some research and get some opinions. This forum is a great place to start and contains a wealth of knowledge...:)

Nice looking Jeep. You should fill out your profile, looks like you already have a Antirock and maybe OME shocks?...You geared too high already or plan on bigger tires?
