Re: Think I'll be ok with this setup for a bit?

RK looks good. But the potential issues with going off road aren't what I am looking for. I'm working on selling the kit. If it doesn't sell I'll just limit the extent of off-road driving I do until I can upgrade to another kit.

JonJon, what happened with yours? How hard were you running it?

The kit just isn't nearly as good as the RRO. For $100 more, I expected a lot more out of it. I mean I wheel it to its limits and that's it, but I just want more. For the money it just isn't the right kit for off roading. OME HD will be my eventual resting spot in terms of lift kits. This is until I can take the jeep in a different, more extreme direction.

Thanks for the input JonJon. Just sold my RK kit. Waiting for payment. Once I get the money and it is shipped to the person who bought it, I will be ordering the RRO kit. Thanks again!

I'm glad you were able to sell it so quickly. You'll like the new setup. Keep in touch and let us know how the build goes.

Ya I for sure will. And speak of the devil, they paid. Just gotta wait for the paypal echeck to clear. Had to sell it a bit cheaper than what I paid but I figured that would sell quicker that way anyway. But I still have enough after shipping to buy the rusty's spacers I want for the front.

Re: Think I'll be ok with this setup for a bit?

I was planning to get the RRO installed then I will be running Monroe LoadLeveler shocks on the rear (which add a bit more lift) and then the Rusty's 0.5" spacers on the front. Soon I will be getting the Monroe struts to paid with the shocks but I am waiting on the cash for those.
