Just make sure the weight of the vehicle is on the jack stands and not the farm jack! You don't want to try to catch the vehicle with them
I don't trust the farm jack to hold the weight for very long, especially not while I'm bashing on parts. I was planning on lifting it with the farm jack, then lowering it onto the jack stands. Should be fine?
Found a HILIFT 48" farm jack on sale for $69.99. Killer price for me.
Tried it out earlier...wicked jack. Love it.
Ordered the Rock Krawler kit from Carolina Truggies. Shipping was listed as $0 so it looked like a steal. Got a call this morning, I guess there was an error and the shipping is actually $30. So that sucks...oh well.
I imagine that RK builds the lifts as they are ordered in order to keep down overhead costs from surplus inventory. Also, RK has their "standard lift kits", but can also swap out components to the customers wants.
i.e. For a while, they had the RK 3.5" X-Factor lift, which many customers would order, but request the 2.5" springs be installed instead. Recently, RK has just created a "standard" 2.5" & 1.5" X-Factor lift due to demand. And RK RRD shocks can be custom tuned at the factory before they are shipped.
Just hang tight, the 1 week wait may feel like a long time, but it will be worth it once you have it installed. I believe you will be pleased with the results.

RK 2.5" Max Travel, Rancho 9000XL shocks, 37" Nittos, 5.38's, RR skids, Warn VR8000-S.
RIPP Gen 2 Stg 2 Supercharger. Political Correctness offends me.
Whoever actually arranged shipment (either the seller or through RK) used UPS as a courier. UPS is notorious for excessive COD's. USPS and FedEx don't have that problem. I guess in the future I'll have to request they use a different courier, assuming they're able to.
But the missing trackbar has to be a RK problem. And now I can't install my lift kit. And I'll probably have to wait a few more weeks and pay even more COD to get it..
They responded WRT the trackbar. Supposedly it's separated during shipment and will arrive today. That seems strange.
