Yes I am. No complaints so far. I saved cash over the JBA ones. The JBA ones have a lot of hype, and they are great; however, the RRO aren't garbage as everyone makes them out to be. They have been revised and look strong. Don't let someone who doesn't even run them trash talk them. They are just fine.

Thanks for the opinion man. I knew they had problems up front, but I think have long since been resolved. I'm always open to products, especially if it can save a few bucks.

Nice. I went with 4600 in the front with the strut spacers (5100 still back ordered) , 5100 rear, ome all around, rustys trackbar, rustys 2" spacer, and 285/70/17 maxis bighorn.

I'll get disconnects for front and back at some point and some nicer rims. Hopefully install it when I get back from California next week

I'm so excited! Got tracking info on the rustys stuff and isn't supposed to be here until Monday, so that means not this weekend, but next!

Nice man! You have any pictures of it? Did you go HD or MD coils?

Just a heads up, when you dial that Rusty's track bar in and adjust it to recenter your axle, add locktite or another thread locker to the nut. Mine and JeepN4KC's came loose and created a popping sound.

Thanks for the heads up man. I thought I seen that somewhere. Do you know how much longer than stock I need to adjust that out to?

I just finished putting on OME shocks, struts and springs (no additional spacers). Having done the pinch weld, sadly, 285s are not an option (while they only rub lightly at full lock, they will rub a lot if the suspension is compressed and turning). Looking at 275s later today.

I thought about adding spacers but I think I need what little down-travel there is left so smaller tires it is (be looking at SL-styling later).

Depends on what your actual ride height is and how the axle sits. Best bet is trial and error really because individual results will vary.

I will tell you that a little bit goes a long way.

Thanks. Is this something that will be fined tuned when I take it in for an alignment after lifting?

No - when you install the trackbar you set the length. The axle side (passenger) tb end is threaded. You spin it in or out depending on how your length needs to be. It is reverse thread btw, and when I did mine I had to play around with it. Set length, install, reassemble, tires back on, set on it's own weight, see how the axle sits side to side. Took a few take apart/put back together and was somewhat of a PITA but that's how I did it.

Anybody know if I will need to add extended rear bumpstops? I've seen when people are using them, they are using PVC couplings?

If you're gonna run 285s it might not be a bad idea.
Really depends on how you plan to use the rig. Aggressive wheelin will stuff the rear at some point.
