Nothing too flexy but ill post. RE DB on 33's 5.5" with RE bumpstops. Now im bumstopped even more cause the tire ripped off the fender. 10" shocks front and back, fronts showing 5.5" of shaft and rears not soo much.
not the best pics but you get the idea, 6" misc lift with rc DB's and x flex upper and lowers on some 33's, still need to trim more, these are some poser pics to check for binding, twists up on the trail better but i never have my camera
honestly long arms are sweet, but i couldnt be happier with my DB's and flex arms, to be honest i did my homework and as of now i have no need to go long arm, i dd this thing every day and on the road is really really nice, off road my shocks limit my flex and to say the least the pics dont do much justice for any of these trucks, search around find what you can afford and dont look back, one day you can long arm it but these fit most budgets better and dont give up much more then some ground clearance in compromise.....i can live with it until further notcie, and i can still do everything as a long arm, and hang with most of them on an RTI ramp when it comes to garage and who flexs more talk lol honestly you wont be disappointed, pm me if you have any questions, i dont post much but have done more research then i can shake a stick at and can at least provide some real world proof
x2. and if you keep your eyes open, you can find them used for a good price. i got mine with the braces for $150. thats about $250 off what they sell for new. deals are out there and you wont be disappointed like hodge said. if you wheel in rocks much, which in florida i doubt, they will drag some but not enough to really hinder off road performance. my 10.5" shocks also limit my travel
Completely stock, and keeping it that way...
As for the 5150's.... I did the lift and shocks all at once, and have never had any other shocks on my jeep other than the oe stuff with over 98k miles on it. Before all that, my xj rode like a jeep, now it really rides like a JEEP (if that makes any sense). Stiff ride, no bounce to it. It takes a bump or dip and soaks it up well, one stroke and thats it. What do they go for an extra $25 bucks a shock or so? I'd recommend them to anyone. FYI I have the 5125's in the rear (same shock and valving minus the external reservoir). Hope that helps.
hell the RC drops come complete with everything for like 189, they work great with pretty much any arms you run, and once you toss some RE or RC flex arms things get even better......as always the sky is the limit when it comes to money you can spend, but these ended up being a great compromise that i wouldnt think twice about doin again
