I don't know how they ride. the vendor guy isn't saying much is he. Remember a jeep is always going to ride like a jeep.

would this fit 33x12.5 15's with 1" of BL? I am thinking yes, just want to double check before I pull the trigger...
and would it be possible to go to a 16" or 17" rim?

hmm, possibly worth the extra $200 over 2" BB and shocks.

Its not that much of a price difference.

The RC 2.5" kit has a MSRP of $299. 10% off makes it $270, or $266 from the other mentioned vendor.

Most BB kits with shocks are $200-250.

I looked at Rocky Mountain adds and it shows $ 299 so I dont know where that price is coming from but I can match it and prolly beat it.

As far as the 2.2 shocks, no complaints so far, a few guys on here are running them and love them. You could run a 33 with this and a 1 inch body with about the same result as running a 35 on a 4 inch and 1 inch body.

Come on guys I know some of you wanna try this kit out, just give me a call and I can send one your way.

If you would have came out with this kit 8 months ago I would have been much happier...

The BB should be absolete with a true coil 2.5" lift for under $300, it makes perfect since to me for anyone in the BB market to be all over this.
