RF, they used to have 5.5 coils instead of 6.5 coils with their kits. They do not have them listed on their website anymore. Check out MoonyJohn's rig........he has em

Last time I emailed they still had a set of fronts available. Not sure about rears though.

I also saw this company that has them available, but they are a little pricey.

Didn't take long to shoot that down.

Its surprising how many good deals slip under the radar on classifieds. Thought this might be one........apparently not the case.

Yea I jumped to it when I saw the add because 4.5 with my kor spacers is where I wanted to be. Got lucky I guess.

Will..... You stink! (although you have the lift I want)

4.5" coils and 3/4" spacers is what I want as well. I plan to cut my fenders and fir 33's on.


Anyways. I took my dog to the lake and let him run around today. He had a blast! On Friday I think im gonna go to Doton's Point to check it out.

I love my setup. I plan on trying to fit 34's after fender trimming and then bump-stopping it properly. Should make for a great combination.

Yeah dude. It doesn't raise the center of gravity as much and full fender trimming lets you fit good sized tires in there.

On another note, how do you like the IRO long arms? do you have them just up front or in the back too? I'm trying to figure out what my arm situation is going to be when i hit the ~5" mark.

Im thinking right now:
Front - Lower long arms. upper adjustable arms
Rear - IRO ajustable A-arm w/ adjustable lower arms

I plan on using IRO for the front LAs and IronMan 4x4 for the adjustable arms.

The IRO long arms are a 3 link design so the drivers arm covers the upper and lower mounts and the passengers only covers the lower. Long arm kits will not require any upper arms as they are already incorporated.

I'm also running IRO font long arms and have been very happy with them so far. You can check them out sometime if you want.

I'm on fixed Rustys short arms in the back and have no complaints. I'm hearing a lot of good things about ironman.......I would definitely go that route if your looking into adjustables.

That is correct. Here is a picture of my lift before I put it on. You can see that the iron-Y arm incorporates both the upper and lower control arm mounts.
