What about Rusty's Offroad? Are they not on the list for a reason? I am seriously considering running thier 4.5 system in the very near future... I was at wheelin in the country over new years and saw more Rusty's stuff than almost anything else... Just think that they are a worthy competitor and should be added to the list!!!

I'm running a 4" tomken ultra flex kit with 1.75" Teraflex budget boost. I'm very pleased with them. it actually rides smoother than stock. If I would do it again, I'd probably go with a Rubicon Express kit though.

Default Well it seems no one has.

Parts are in the mail. Rocky road 4" trailblazer, comes with OME springs, poly spacers, shackles and blocks, adjustable track bar, bushings and rear brake lines. I opted for the additional cost rancho 9000xl adjustable shocks, quick disconnect anti-sway bar links and fixed length lower control arms. I admit it was pricey, but if it is what it says it is its worth it. The guy says it's gonna take a few weeks to ship, I'll report back how it works out for me>

i posted this question elsewhere on this forum but this looks like a better thread to ask, has anyone ever installed the rustys 8 inch long arm kit on their xj? i was going to order it but was wondering about ease of install and quality? i have a lift to install it on so i know that makes it a bit easier to begin with. also it says i can fit 35s but should i go with 33s for more clearance?

I would definitely go with more than 33s. Most people run 33s on 4.5 and 35s on 6in so 8 is gonna need a decent size tire. I have 4.5 with 33s

Most people on here are biased towards km2. They are an over all better tire. If you don't mind the road noise and do more mud I would go with a cheaper swamper. Km2 also has a better on road tread life
