It took about a year for it to sag how it did but it did sag. On the bright side though RC did say they would send him a new kit ....so it seems they will stand by their product.

I appreciate the info. And hopefully they'll stand by it if it does end up occurring.

That extra .25 won't be noticable driving. But it may make a world of difference with clearance. Go for the 1.25.

35's will work with 4" and up without anything fancy. As long as your springs stay above 2.75" of lift, and you use a 1.25" lift, you shouldn't have a problem. Every situation is a little different though, and I have no idea how the 3.25 springs hold up long-term. Don't forget to adjust your bumpstops and steering stops accordingly.

I run 35's no problem with 3" suspension and 1.5" body lift. I do have flat fenders though.

That's 4.5"...

I could slightly rub 33's on the outer part of the flare with a 4" lift before my BL. I have 2" bump stop extensions.

When you get the 35's, leave the springs out and jack up each tire until it hits something. Take out the little rubber inserts from the bump stops. Add a spacer to the axle spring perch so the the tire doesn't contact anything.

Reinstall the little rubber bumpstops and springs.

Steering stops are just a bolts on the knuckle. They keep the wheels from turning too far. Like if you're tires hit the swaybar when turning at full articulation.

I was running 2" springs and a 1.25" bl with 35's, no problem at all, no rubbing. currently running 3" springs up front due to a winch resting on my bumper.

currently running more down travel than uptravel until I relocate my shock mounts and raise the fenders.


you dont need 4"+ lift to run 35's

I guess I assume there's not enough uptravel. Everybody has a different take on it though.

Currie's instructions for their 4" kit say that when used in conjunction with a 1" bl, their kit is good for 35" tires.

Ok. You can also fit 35's on 2" lift. You will just have no travel.
