Wise words young grasshopper. Way to check it out and make a good decision.

Spacers, as in what's in the green circle on the right here. Not a stock item.

the quick disconnects are easy to make. I ended up saying screw it and just took off my front sway bar all together. You start to realize its not a race car and shouldnt be driven like one. With that in mind, no swaybar = no issues

Looking good! You can trim your fender with a cutoff wheel on an angle grinder. Then pick up flap disc to clean it up!

I love my front sway bar connected and my *** alive, lol, but I've been looking at a 4.5" lift on cl. Though I want it bad. I don't necessarily want to trim my fenders myself. I will screw it up.

Thanks man, I tried my best, she's not done yet though, just waiting for money to come in. And your asking the wrong guy, I have no clue honestly, I've heard good and bad about RC. I mean, I don't think it's terrible. The one I'm looking at is a RE. But yeah, going straight and soft turns is one thing, I can't go over 35 on a backload without feeling like ima die

Hey matt If you use a grinding wheel to cut the fender an have the line marked with making tape and move slowly with the grinder then you will have no problem with trimming those flares. That's how I did the guy's JK stock bumper for that winch.
