Full Traction BB?

Has anyone out there used this BB? I'm looking to go with BB in the next month or so and came across this one. I searched and could'nt come up with anything on it.

Thats ok. I was just wondering about the shocks it came with mostly. I wanted to go with the RE BB but I have been reading and it seems alot of people don't like the twintubes it comes with. I know I could get the monotubes but thats not an option due to tight finds. I saw the 2.5 through RC. I actually called and spoke to Jeff today at RC and spoke to him about it. I'm just not sure if I need a full spring lift tho since I don't do much wheeling.More or less just a camp run and a little playing in the mud at times.

FYI - Use caution when recommending the RC 2.5 TJ Lift

I have the lift installed on my '06 Rubi Unlimited and it is bottomed out on the shocks in the rear - the springs are just not stout enough. I have Body Armor bumpers, sliders, an Olympic Daves Rack, a hi-lift jack, and two empty gas cans (all told less than 500 lbs added) and this is with no hard top on and a 1/2 tank of gas, no passengers and no cargo. I don't think I have an excessive amount of accessories..... I have been in contact with several others that are having the same issue. I have been in contact with RC to hopefully resolve the issue - and they are working on getting me out some H.D. coils.

My point is - if you have a non-stock jeep with extra gear bolted on - this may be an issue - better to know now than after you spent 4 or 5 hours installing it.

You almost need your own thread, I just installed the 3.25 lift and plan on adding all of the above in the not to distant future. Keep us posted.

I'm assuming your talking about the RC 2.5?

RC 2.5 Shock Fail

Yes - the RC 2.5 kit. I's been awhile since I've checked in. Rough Country never did send any HD coils and I just finished removing the 2.5 shocks - the left side failed and was bottomed out on the rubber bumper and the right side attachment bar failed at the top.

I am of the opinion that these springs are too soft for my setup and thereby require a very heavy duty set of shocks to compensate - which the 2.5 shocks are obviously not.

I've gone back to the stockers for now......
