Hello All,

I traded my Harley for it, I love it

Just installed a RC 2.5 last night, saving for some 31's

just curious, did you install a steering box brace yet? That really helped on my old YJ, I'm about to get one for my LJ as well. It's only like $25 and installs pretty quick.

I have 31's on mine with no lift, If you have the money, which shouldn't be much of a difference, go 32's it will make it look even better. Just fills up the wells a bit more. Just my opinion though

I can answer this one I have the RC 3.25 on my LJ. Which uses the 2.5 springs with a .75 spacer, also comes with longer sway bar links. Anyway I have had it on a couple months and really dont have any complaints, If flexes REALLY well for a 3" kit. The ride is stiffer than stock, around town it is not alot different in my opinion, small bumps are a little harder, but not painfull.

I just got back from a weekend of camping/wheeling and what i can say is if you plan on being on rough roads, even dirt pot holes and wash boards, airing down is mandatory for a smooth ride. I did not air down that much, only to 18-20 psi. which most people do not even consider airing down.... But for the type of roads and trails i was on it was plenty, in doing that the ride was awsome!! If you do not have a OBA setup, here is a cheap alternitave which has served me well. IT is not the fastest little compressor, but it works. I got mine at checker for $60 http://www.parksoffroad.com/prodrevi.../mv50/mv50.htm

Thanks, am debating what size to get, I have a friend that knows a person selling a set of 31's, not sure what they are what he wants for them, I should find out this week, if not I be looking at the 32's

Just installed the kit Friday night, it rides a little stiff but I read that after some miles it will soften some, am pleased with the way it feels now.

The only problem I got a bad case of the (DW) Death Wobble, the front left shock leaked out a pretty good puddle, I hope that's what is causing the DW's, will call RC Monday to ask for a replacement.

Then tires and alignment

Hmmm, never heard of such a thing. Do you have a link? Let me know how it works out for your LJ.

I haven't heard of a steering box brace for TJ's, but they have them for CJ's and YJ's because the mounting is a little bit weaker then TJ's.

Here's one example of the steering box brace for TJ/LJ's

http://www.quadratec.com/products/22518_910.htm

I just ran a quick search, didn't look at 4wheelparts or any of the other guys out there yet. The Warrior Products one is only powder coated which should be fine for most folks, but I live in NH and they use a metric arse ton of salt up here in the winter. So I was gonna spray paint some extra love on there. I'm looking at getting my under carriage painted as well to prevent further corrosion, not sure what all I'm gonna do there yet, not sure if you can bed line the bottom of your rig, never tried.

Anyhow, as far as the steering box brace goes it's the same basic principal, strengthen the mounting of your steering box, with bigger tires comes more strain, flex, etc... so this helps take some of the strain, pressure, weakness, etc...

You know how it goes, with bigger tires comes.....
