RE lift part II, previous thread was hijacked :)

Anyway, so far this is the best deal fo RE I could find out there:
Free s+h and they offer "free" DT 3000
http://www.redrock4x4.com/shop/products/247.html
Are there any better deals you guys know of?
Do I need adjustable Rear Track Bar with 3.5 RE?

Where did you get yours, Phil? and how much if that's not a secret?
Thx

You can get front and rear adj track bars from Kevinsoffroad. Rear is $135 and front is $195. I went with Kevin's track bar conversion up front and I'll be putting it all on this weekend. Look in my sig. to see what all's going in. I'll let ya know how everything goes and maybe give a little more advice at that point.

You're going to want some front swaybar discos. The RE ones are cheap and easy but can be a little clanky. The JKS ones or the RE second generation discos are better.

My RE Kit was purchased and installed by OKAuto4Wheel Drive. I didn't get any bargain, I basically paid the same price you did with no shocks thrown in!
Now, I do have some advice with front swaybar disco's and Hunter's recommendations. I have had trouble with my RE Gen2 Disco's. The driver side bolt has come loose a few times and I actually lost it when wheelin 2 weekends ago and RE still hasn't gotten the replacement bolt and sleeve to me. I would not do RE Gen2's again. Go with the JKS's. I am more disappointed with their lack of service than the fact that now they recommend using red locktite on the bolt!
Good Luck,
Phil
