Whenever I have time, Ill do a review on the RC long arm kit, for now I will just say it was a ***** to install, but rides very nice.
Very nice. That will look good color matched.

Look forward to seeing the new LA kit.

On a scale of 0-10 with 0 being super soft and 10 being super stiff with stock ride being a 5, I would say this is about 5.5. The rcx kit I would put at about 7. It really isn't that much different from stock. Rides nice and smooth on the highway.

And yeah, me and a buddy put it on.

Heres a couple pics right after I got the bumpter on. Ended up just painting it black. No time or money to have it body matched right now. I think it turned out really well.





And heres a dirty pic for all you Jeep pervs like me



Thats all I have right now until Im out of school and have some time to have some fun.

Near future mods include a platform in the back for spare tire storage. On board air in the spare well. One of those chinese knock off head units with GPS and bluetooth. And a winch (haven't decided which one yet)

I think it looks just fine.

Custom or commercially available?

The bumper? It is from TAG. I bought it from BamaWJ on here. It had a light bar across the winch opening kind of like a small stinger, but I didn't really care for it, so I cut it off.

No problem man. And I feel you on the hoop on the front. I didn't really want it either, but it was the only way to mount those giant lights I had. Looks good, even though I was looking forward to the color match.

About the company...they were still KMA when I bought they bumper. It was shortly after that they changed to TAG. I think they are Blue Lake Offroad now.

Lift

How was the installation of the lift? Did you use the 4" x-series? Is it a pretty straightforward job?

On the white Jeep you see in the OP, I had the x-series kit. That kit was very straight forward. I installed it by myself in a day.

The Overland has the RC long arm kit. It was a bit of a ***** to install. It took me and a buddy 36 hours total. But, that included several trips to hardware stores, a trip to a machine shop and a trip from the garage to my apartment over an hour away and back for a part I forgot and didn't realize until we got to that particular step in the install . Without all the mishaps, we could have had it done in a weekend, maybe 18-20 hours total.
