looking good, I'll have to check that out I thought currie and rokmen were the only ones that provided greasable flex joints

The rubicon express superflex joints are greasable and rebuildable.

That's just shy of awesome I saw that Jeepzcb09 I think RC and RE (RC ESPECIALLY) is starting to really give bang for the buck.. a lift with those Joints 2 year ago would be more like 2000 dollars in my guess ( because I still see them selling for that much)

Apex I love seeing another apex.. It's the one thing people notice about my jeep.. HEY NICE SEATS!!! lol

Check out the gold mountain trip report in the southwest section. All the TJ's were on short arms, including my LJ. The 2 TJ's are on RE 3.5" springs with 33s. My LJ is currie 4" with 33s. Here's a few pics of mine, but there's more in that thread. Nothing super flexed out, the trail wasn't too difficult.

$$ on the RCs that lift looks really nice glad your getting some use from the currie already why does it look like you still have your sway bar connected in that picture?

You have quick discos right? Just saying after putting on that lift i'd be disconnected and whoring up the bandwidth with the pictures lol

Antirock, no need to disconnect. My driver side rear was up on a ledge while the passenger side was down since I took a tighter turn on that line. I really want to get out on a rougher trail and see just how much it can flex now. Since that was the first run with the lift and tires I didn't want to do anything too gnarly, just wanted to get out and see how it rides. This summer, once all the snow is gone, it's on!
