From what I have seen on their website their upper and lower control arms are both adjustable and have johnny joints in them. Looks like a pretty good deal with full leaf packs for the rear and ect...heres what their site says
XJ 4" Ultra-Flex Articulating Lift Kit http://www.tomken.com/

For XJ models with Dana 35 rear
Set your jeep up so you can put on 31x10.50 tires. This lift has stood the test of time.
Kit Includes:
Coils
Rear leafs (pr)
Sway bar mounts
Rear bump stop ext.
Poly leaf bushing
Rear brake line ext
Axle shims
Adjustable articulating control arms
(Uppers and Lowers)
Set of 4 U-bolts
1" trans case drop

$971.20 TMT-2000-35

Lower adjustable arms w/ johnny joints

This pic does not show all of the parts but most....



WHAT DO YALL THINK???? Looks like better control arms than come with the RE kit...but I dont know much. All I know is if everyone did what everyone else did than no-one would discover newer better stuff....so I want to make sure that RE is not the ONLY alternative to trash.

I did search Tomken and Yes lots comes up but no posts came up that offered anymore information than you did ie..."seems they are pretty good" (not that I don't appreciate the input I really do, and I dont mean to disrespect). I was looking for more conclusive data, rumors, reputation, personal experiances, buddy's personal experiance, specific, non-specific ect.... Dont start flaming me for not searching because I did search and if I found the type of information I wanted I would have not started a new post. But since I did not find the information that I was seeking I thought I would make a new post and see if anyone has any sort of personal experiances or emperical data to offer. No I dont have many posts but that Might mean I use the search option alot and find the information I was looking for without creating a new post, But thanks for your concern in keeping re-posts to a minimum.

Tomken was one of the first companies to make kits for the XJ. Problem was, they didn't evolve with the other makers and they are finally starting to catch up. I have a set of their fixed UCA and LCA arms for a 4" lift and they are beefier than hell, but do not flex as much due to the rubber bushings.

I started looking at their newer arms and am damn tempted to go that route. They look like they are well built, and if they are like other tomken parts, they are! I say go for it, and give use a full update (with pics) of the fitment and flex the kit offers.
