What BB should I get???

Does anyone have the 2.25" BB from 4wheelcustoms.com? I would rather do that than a 1.75 daystar but if its bad I wont. Same price and more lift so Im hoping Ill get some good feedback. Thanks!

They are all made from poly. They will probably be 2" and the stock coil isolator is .25". I have the daystar and they are fine. The 4wheel customs shouldn't be any different.

I remember a thread on some forum about durometer (I think that is what it is called) testing of different BBs, and I believe there was some difference between different manufacturers, but I don't think it was that big of difference to matter. I think you should be fine.

It's a combo... states he has 4" RC and 2" BB. Hopefully long armed and aftermarket trackbars at that height

I put the fat bobs kit on last weekend, It's easier to just pull the rear bolt out of the LCA's, and drop everything down to put the front's on, that way you don't need a spring compressor.

I need to order adj. track bars now though, not imperative, but it needs it.
