You already said you don't want to replace your skid plate so why not take everyone's advice and not go with clayton?

what tires do you want to run? what terrain do you want to run? where are you getting stuck now that 4-6" of lift is REQUIRED? Do you understand everything that goes along with long arms & big tires? SYE, alloy shafts, brake upgrades, steering upgrades, lockers, etc.
Didn't know you needed lockers to run 4-6" of lift.

x3 on Poly Performance, just had mine installed last week, great ride and very solid feel. Had Full Traction removed due to having the bushings replaced every 12 months. Haven't wheeled it yet, still putting all the little odds ends together.

Why are you even considering any swamper product for a DD? The irok is pretty much the thornbirds handicapped cousin. They don't do anything well.

On the plus side, you can keep your D30/44 as they'll never get enough traction to break anything

I think I just found my new sig. This is by far one of the most "out-there" statements I have ever read.

I've heard nothing but praise concerning BDS shortarm. Haven't seen too many running the longarm though. Good, bad, ugly..?

I have the 6.5" longarm and have no complaints. It is my DD. Rides better than stock on the road and does a good job of keeping all the tires on the ground off the road.
