Not EVER!

Good luck with the search! I know they are rare here in AZ, and we are fortunate enough not to deal with rust issues.

Is there a reason you want a long arm vs. short arm kit? Just wondering, you could go either route.

Hopefully you can find a Rubi!
After going through a lot of threads and getting a lot of input from other owners, I determined that the long arm would be most suitable because it provides the most smooth ride both on and off the road, instead of leaning more to one side. And thanks I'm determined

I think you will find a lot of people that disagree with this statement

IMO long arms are unnecessary on a jeep. Mid arms if you want to extend the wheelbase and run 12-14" travel shocks, other than that, shortarms will give you the best ride and are plenty capable off road

ahhh, ok, well most of that thread is over 4 years old. and the majority of the people supporting long arm set ups have small post counts. the main knowledge guys say it in there. no real benefit unless you stretch it and actually hurt your break over angle

I just paid more attention to how they mention that the long arm runs much smoother on the street than short arm. And requires a lot less "spot on" decisions
