Pricing is gonna be around 250, working on all that today. I will try to get some pics of the skid installed as well. I believe with the LA kit you will gain 2 1/2 inches over stock skid.

I had the chance today to see a TJ with the RC Long Arm kit on it. The arms are hudge and the joints look solid. I was very impressed with the long arms. I definitely want one.

I definitely like mine. Hard to beat it for the money. When you're on a budget it is good to see options that you can actually afford. I know that was the case for me.

I was very impressed with how thick the arms are. The pictures don't do justice.

I agree on that. When I took them out of the boxes I couldn't believe it. Definitely have to see it in person.

If youre running the long arm kit, do you have to use a body lift to have the skid?

If running the LA kit you dont have to have the bl to run the skid. I run it on mine and it is close but no problems. Yes the 2.5 LA is 1499 retail but all of the LA kits are going up. But we are still alot cheaper than anybodies kit on the market.

Oh no, I don't want the prices to go up. $899 is perfect right now.

I have a 1" BL already, will I need the MML to run this skid plate with the LA upgrade?

I just finished installing the 6" kit on my TJ this past week. I'll be glad to answer any questions. I'm hoping the springs will settle over time, over all net is 7". I didn't have any exhaust modifications, Gibson catback is tucked up nicely. Also, I received a great deal on my kit; send me a PM and I'll let you know where.

If you could get me a measurement, from the ground to the bottom of the door that would be great.

I sit at 35" from the ground to the bottom center of each door. Keep in mind I also have a 1" body lift.
