New they were around $800. You could probably get about a 1/3 of that to the right buyer I would imagine. They are really heavy. I wound up cutting mine down to size a little.

Look elsewhere. RC shocks are known for their terrible ride. I suggest you take a look at OME, or if $'s are a big factor, try Zone's 3" lift or a BDS lift. RC and Skyjacker are pretty much bottom of...

You can and should run 12.5" tires on the 8" rims (better for airing down off road), but even with 4" of back space they will stick out beyond stock flares. Mine are 3.75 backspace and stick out...

I suggest you install a 1" Mml, it will lessen your driveline angle and and most likely solve the shifter hitting the dash issue. When I did mine, I was able to cut the tail pipe ahead of the t-case...

Bottom line is you are going to have to reduce your drive line angle to get rid of the vibes. This can only be done by lowering your t-case, raising your engine, or lengthening your drive shaft (by...

The nut is what puts the threads on the plastic pin the first time you thread it on. It's just a stamped sheet metal flanged nut. Try Ace Hardware.
