About to install this kit again on a buddy's Jeep. I've lost count of how many of these kits I've installed. I haven't had anyone complain about it yet.

2.5" kit, quick discos, steering stabilizer, 1.25" BL, 1" MML

I would add a 2" lower to the front and a 2" upper to the rear. If your shocks still bottom out add a 1.5 RE spacer and trim to fit.

You got the same jeep as I do. How does it ride with 6 cyl coils? Any rust yet? I'm looking to be as close to the ground as possible, hoping to stay around 2" to avoid having to do anything with the crossmember.

i've only taken it around the neighborhood so far, but the ride is nice an firm; not stiff, just firm. All of the bushings are worn out in the control arms, so we will be looking to replace those too.

RC does. Just order it through the vender here or via RC and ask for the forum discount. RC ships really fast.

I've had my 2.5" kit on for 2 years now and have no rust.

with a 1.25" BL. Could be done without it but it would be really tight with stock fenders.

My springs and shocks have just begun to rust. This is the second winter they have seen in Maine. And I have two blown 2.2 shocks. I can not find my proof of purchase so they will not help make good on it. I will shop else were from now on. I have purchased about $1000 worth from RC. Looking back at it they just do not quite have the quality to make it worth while. If stuff did not rust out as fast and they made good on the shocks I would be much happier. I used to defend them but not anymore. They are what they are and you get what you pay for.
