JKS manufacturing ACOS anyone?
 
Anyone using the JKS Manufacturing ACOS? What are your impressions? I was thinking of getting a full set of these instead of a lift kit. Just looking for some pros and cons.

I,too have looked at these-expensive,but I like the adjustability on them.I tried a 2" spacer kit,and opened myself a gateway to a myriad of problems that I am still sorting out.If I ever get everything stabilized,I might run these,because I like the idea of not having to rip out virtually every bit of the stock stuff and replace it all!

I was thinking the same thing. I know I have seen someones rig on here that is running them. I just cant remember who.

They are pricey and are really just good for front ends that need adjustments for extra weight and other calibrations for trail queens.

They are just adjustable puck lifts. Youll still get the same potential problems.

A good lift will have some new springs, shocks to fit the extended springs and other parts. Especially for the price. IDK

Id love to have them but they are pricey and not that great for just a lift. Maybe if I needed tunable suspension!

Can you use these in conjunction with a lift kit to fine tune everything and maybe give you a bit of an added lift it you wanted to?

Yes sir, thats the primary usage for most people. So when they add a winch or notice rub on a trail they can adjust a little. Or any other circumstance. With a nice lift they could be a great addition. On stock or just a BB I wouldnt see it being worth the price. Id go with skid plates and supporting parts with stock heights or close to stock heights so when you go offroad what is close to the ground doesnt get torn all to hell!
