You can throw my RC 2.5's to see how they sit if you want. I won't need them for at least a week.

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'm going to run Brad's. Not sure when I'll get around to swapping them out & if I like the ones Brad sends me I can just leave them in & throw him some cash for them.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Thanks, James, but I really think 2.5 is the magic number, if not I might check them out. Brad is shipping them to me this week. I think once I get those in & then the Bilsteins in the front, I should be able to take the 3/4" spacers out & hopefully sit pretty level at about 20.5" to the frame.

Besides, you need to get that thing sitting on those springs!

I'll get those coils shipped out to you tomorrow or Friday at the latest Danno! These RC 2.5" rear coils are more like 3" coils. The do ride smooth and you can see from our recent trip out to the Badlands how good they flexed (my new RC 2.5" coils). Here's a couple pics of how well they flex...

It's been 3 weeks hunting for some fender flares. It's time do do something. My search for a Rubi passenger flare to match the set I got off ebay has come up empty handed so far with no leads what-so-ever. So here are some of my options:

A. Keep trying to find a Rubi flare - no idea when one will turn up.

B. Get one from the dealer - $140 FOR ONE!

C. Get a stock flare to replace the Rubi pass front - $50, so run 3 Rubi's & one Stock. Not sure what that would look like.

D. Get a set of stock fronts so they would at least look the same & run the Rubi rears. - $100 again not sure what that would look like.

E. Get a full set of stock flares - $120

F. Replace the current ugly 6" passenger front that started all this mess. - $100

I'm leaning towards B or D because I want to run the Rubi rears after I HiLine it. For only $40 more at the dealer, I can run all Rubi flares.

Upon further reflection of my situation, I think I might go option E. Get a full set of new stock flares. Hang on to the Rubi rears & maybe try to get $20 or so for the driver front. When I HiLine it I can get a few bucks for the full set of stock flares plus some cash for my front fenders to ease the $600 price tag on the Rokmens.

I found the rear coils and they are going to be shipped out tomorrow morning. I'll get you that tracking number tomorrow. And as for your fender flare decisions, I choose...

G. Stop screwing around and spending money on stock fender flares and put that money toward some flat fenders. That will completely transform your jeep. Flat fenders up front and no flare w/ corners (or 3.5" flare w/ corners) in the rear.

Cool man! Thanks!

I'd love to do the Rokmens now, but it would look pretty stupid with my 33's. The MCE's look ok, but I love me some Rokmen HiLines.

Stock flares are fine. I MAY actually have a full set of those. I know I have good rear flares, just not sure about the fronts.

Those highlines are amazing, but so are their standard line fenders. If you want to highline then I would just hold off until you are ready to drop that dime and continue the momentum. If I had to choose between stock or rubicon flares, I would choose stock and trim them. I still have my sock flares on the back of my jeep and I frequently get asked "who makes those rear flares"? I'm getting rid of mine in the next week or so when I install the Rokmen corners, so they are yours if you want em.
