Are you not going to get the tire carrier? I think with everything I want its like 805. Pretty good for a bumper with a tire carrier, gas can, and receiver.

Get a credit card and use it to get groceries or something cheap every once in a while. Then pay it off full every month.

Nice looking jeep you got there. I noticed that you put in a RC x-series lift kit and as someone who will being buying a lift kit soon would you be able to tell me the advantages of the x-series over the regular one and also what other components you had to buy in addition to the kit. Thanks, Pat

Thanks man, I love the RCX. I would high recommend not getting the cheaper lift from RC. The problem with that lift is that you still need somethings to make it all work. Like lower control arms, adjustable track bar. Its just a better buy to get the RCX lift. The other problem with the cheaper lift is that you have to install a Drop Bracket for the track bar. Its VERY sketchy. My of the guys have to get it welded on to make it work. Not worth it. With the RCX lift, I haven't had to add anything to make it work. Just the obvious stuff like a new front driveshaft. But besides that, thats it! If you have anymore questions or need a discounted price on the lift I know where to get that for you!

Do you have factory UCA's, or did your lift come with new ones?
