Not sure why RC gets bashed so hard. When it comes down to it, RC and RE is the same damn thing. It's a radius arm. The only difference is how it mounts, the skid plate/cross member section, and the joints. And when it comes to the joints, both RE and RC have trash joints. If one would buy the RC long arm, thread in a set of Currie JJ's, they would have a damn good radius arm setup.

00XJMikey, what will you be doing, more road driving, or a mix of both wheeling and DD'ing?

I log more paved mules than dirt ones. I try to wheel about twice a month.

Heavily abused ATV trails, logging roads, mud holes, and steep hills. If I had recovery points and some fellow jeep friends, I would be more daring.

Never wheel alone , And Never wheel with our recovery points.

I always go with Anywhere from 1-15 rigs. Find a local club that is established with U4wda and treadlightly they are usually the bigger clubs that have meet and greets , meetings , wheeling trips , and recovery classes

The recovery classes are pretty fun for first timers. I learned some things that saved me from flopping my Xj a few times.

I'm never alone. I always have someone with me and I follow my gut feeling and all the wheeling tip guides on everything. I love my jeep and being able to walk to risk pushing my rig.

I'm working on a tow hooks front/high with daring out back setup. I figure I can always get some plain heavy duty bumpers without d-rings to add to them.

I have RC on my DD and it rides fine. I will say though, that we had an RC on our YJ and it rode horrid.
