I did that right after Richloam, My clutch went 3 weeks after that trip. I took Johnny's advice and waterproofed most of my rig. Tubes were done at that time, But good looking out.

BTW, Brown Santa dropped off my goodies today. RC has great shipping.. A whole day early

Yep picked it up. It's off a yj so I've gotta drill 4 holes because they have 8 holes in the rear instad of just 4 on the outside but well worth it.

Gotta keep my eye open for a rear bumper/carrier combo for my 33's.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

Johnny...at times I regret getting the BB instead of the Full Traction 3 in lift. I was thinking of getting a winch with next years tax return but the lift might win out.

Besides, I'm going back to Moab and Ouray next summer.

Johnny, That kit is cheap for a reason.. Look how the back is setup on it ( your rig would flex better then that set up ) The front would flex just like jimmy's setup. They could of done a better job with it

Yeah, you'd be better off paying $1300 for that upgrade then $1300 for the RC kit... I like my SA kit for now, but if I go LA it would be either Rusty's or Clayton.... Custom could also happen.

2.5" & La?

Johnny I have been thinking along the same lines as you and I like the Rusty's LA upgrade. Do you guys know if it would work with just 2.5" springs? And which one the standard or high clearance arms?
