I have body damage from not having sliders. Stage 2 or 3? Does it really matter?

Also I have the RCX shocks.

The angled up tube actually gives you a bit of a boost when your stepping on them to access the roof rack... I think stepping wise they are both the same, I don't think them being flat matters... I like the stage 3 because the angled up tube protects the door a bit more from getting dinged up in close parking lots... just my .02

Yea, we will see. I'm flat broke right now. Long arms are first on my list.

Ruh roh... You get long arms with your lift! Be the the first!

I ment to say, "you should get long arms with a 2 inch lift." Really low center of gravity with LOTS of flex

You would get zero uptravel because the arm would come in contact with the unibody before you could ever stuff a tire.

Not a bad idea, but if I go long arms ill at least go with 4.5 lift. But may look into trying it. Dont know how well long arms would work with my currant set up. Any more input?
Mesured center hub to fender and im right under 21" in the front, so I suspect I have the up country package, makes sense I have all the skids and hooks.
When you getting your long arms?

nice! Ive been wondering, your running 255/65 tires (right?) And had all kinds of problems with rubbing, is that from your off set on your rims? I ran 255s when I was still stock with no rub. Had to do very minor trim on front bumper and rears rub a little with my 265s with only 2".
