New Rock Krawler owner.
 
Just invested in the 3.5 inch rk X-factor. I feel like a little kid at Christmas time.

Sweet!!!! I'm 13 days away from the 2.5" max travel.....tick....tick....tick....

Justin04Lj 02-02-2013 04:43 PM

Awesome man. I got mine through a vendor here on wrangler forum. Saved me about 400 bucks.

Owen_TJ 02-02-2013 05:18 PM

nice pick, man!

you'll love it...

what size tires are you gonna be running?

Justin04Lj 02-02-2013 05:31 PM

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. :-)

firefighterwhiskey 02-02-2013 05:37 PM

what vender did you use? Im looking at doing the long arm kit as well on my lj

Justin04Lj 02-02-2013 06:02 PM

His screen name is AOR he has a sale going on now till the 9th. I'd talk to him.

chuckr 02-02-2013 07:08 PM

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!

Justin04Lj 02-02-2013 07:24 PM

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.

JOCJK 02-02-2013 08:04 PM

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....

Justin04Lj 02-02-2013 08:11 PM

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.

Tweak 02-02-2013 08:22 PM

i bought a 3.5 midarm from AOR, should be here in a week or so, i can second that "Kid on Christmas" feeling! he saved me so much money, i basically got the lift and a set of 5100's for what i would have paid for the lift alone at quadratec!

Justin04Lj 02-02-2013 08:39 PM

Yeah he's an awesome guy. If I could sticky this thread to him I would. I'd definitely recommend him.

Sweet! Can't wait to see the results. When are you installing it?

Justin04Lj 02-03-2013 09:59 AM

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 :-/

jagerhelix 02-03-2013 10:23 AM

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,

Thanks buddy. I'm really looking forward to it. Long arm stuff will be for when I don't owe so much on this jeep. Lol.

Justin04Lj 02-03-2013 10:38 AM

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:confused: 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?

stillcrazydave 02-04-2013 09:56 PM

I am new to all this, Got the cash for the X Factor and Shocks and then Im tapped out for a while. Been researching all this on the forum, wheelin some on the weekends. lots of big rocks here in Vegas.

Check out the venders AOR and KOR here on wrangler forum. They can get you an awesome deal.

stillcrazydave 02-04-2013 10:28 PM

Yeah, Allan gave me a nice price, im ready to pull the trigger on the 2.5 x... but do I really need all that in my lift?? we got some pretty crazy stuff to crawl over here.. My friend is sponsored by Fox so Im going to see what he can get me for shocks!

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.

Justin04Lj 02-08-2013 06:16 PM

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

sledn8r 02-08-2013 08:12 PM

Congrats buddy.

Justin04Lj 02-08-2013 08:19 PM
