Don't let the newbs on here who've never been off road on a short arm kit or longarm kit tell you differently. They search for the best dollar deals to run back to the mall or park on a curb at school. I've been to too many Grand Slam events, GSE, GSMW and GSW for the last 15 years seeing what works and what doesn't. Claytons is more expensive but worth every penny.

However, I'm a shortarm guy. I ran 6.5 of shortarm RE with 33s and 35s.

BAM! The law is spoken. Close the thread

Nah, not law....I've watched too many guys start with something cheap, completely regret it. Buy the second kit...for just weekend trail driving and within a year, dana 60s, hydro steering, 35s or bigger, 5.9 crate motors...the addiction is SOOOOOOO strong.

Yea I'm still finding that out. I've had mine lifted and wheeling for a year now though, and still love my critical path IRO kit. Not saying it's gooder, just good enough.
