If I had access to a tube bender, lots of tubing, and the time- custom would be the way I go...

But since I have non of those readily available, and I want to run stuff I also sell, I'm shopping my different suppliers for options. Poison, Smittybilt, River Raider, OR-Fab, and even 2 still in prototype stages are in the running right now. Of course, if someone steps up and tosses a sponsorship my way, well I guess that will win!

I run both hard and soft tips depending on the season and events I'm doing- anyone have any pro's or con's to either top working with one of the brands I just mentioned?

I have no 1st hand experience with all the bolt in cage kits u mentioned but from what i read on various installs and build thread they are all pretty much compatible with both tops. Anyone else wanna chime in on this? Only con ive seen was some times thier lazer cut fit is almost always off and custom fabbing and alteration still has to be done to get these kits to fit. So the day i hafta pull out my grinder,cutter,and welder for a 800 dollar bolt in kit...is the day i will just make my own.

Anywoo...intrested to see which one u go with. Dont forget to show us the install process! Awesome jeep!

like i said, check out the synergy kid. other than that i like the design of the poison spyder, or-fab for bolt ins and i didn't feel like i would be getting much from rr for the price. just my .02

So I'm shopping for adjustable control arms, upper and lower, front and back. I'm looking for feedback based on actual experience on any. Right now I'm not married to any particular brand so I'm completely open minded. I want to hear good and bad.

Going in our '12 JKUR with 4" superlift and 37's. looking for maximum articulation and strength

Sorry for the delay in posts- we have been really busy with upgrades before this season's spring events. We installed a Poison Spyder Trail Cage with grab Handles, and rear C-pillar kit, JL Audio Stealthbox and Kicker amp, new Trek Armor grab handles and relocated the old handles to the headrests for the rear passengers to hold on. We also have new axle gussets and trusses to install sometime soon, as well as some weld on steps to add to the factory rock rails. Lots of fun!

We also just got back from the Big Meat Run 2014 in Disney, OK where we had a blast. Despite a rear locker wiring problem, we still got to do some great trail riding and rock climbing. Met a lot of new friends and got to spend time with a lot of old friends. It was a great weekend. Here are just a few picture updates.

Another photo update, we got to attend Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, although it was very last minute so we only got in on one official trail event. We were in Moab from Thursday morning to Saturday afternoon, but we made the most of the time. We did Poison Spider Trail with the Jeep crew on Thursday, then ran Kane's Creek on Friday, followed by a ridiculous mountain bike ride up Hymasa and down Captin Arab, followed by dinner with the Bully Dog crew and then night wheeling Hell's Revenge (that was terrifying in the dark!). Then Saturday we ran 3-D and The Pickle before airing back up and making the 950 mile trip back to OKC. And all of this without the rear locker! But the jeep did great, and the only times we had issues were times we expected to and knew be hard like we were trying was likely over our rig's abilities. Had one rollover scare on Kane's Creek, actually and now that I think about it all of our issues were on this trail. Got high-centered on a table rock, had the roll scare, and spent some time trying to climb a sand hill that we never actually got up. All incidents were in fun and completely our own doing, looking for the hard lines to make the trail more fun.

After wheeling Hell's Revenge including Hell's Gate in the dark, we have added more intensive rock lights to our short list of must haves. Having better light to see down drop offs is a must for night runs, and a hand held high power spot light is being added to our trail kit.

We met, wheeled with, and hung out with the guys from Exiled Off-road, and look forward to more events and trips with them. If you haven't already- check them out, they're goals and purpose is pretty cool! We also had a great time at the vendor expo, and look forward to working with some new partners to help bring better products to our customers.

Here are just a few pics from the trip, and several thousand more on the GoPro still to sort through...
