Question Rock Krawler LA kit

I'm looking to upgrade to a long arm set up. I looked at rusty's and clayton. Both are about $800.Rock krawler's long arm kit is about $475. Does anybody have any feedback on the rock krawlers? I dont really have the cash for the rustys or claytons and dont really get that hardcore. I'm at 4.5" short arm and going up to 6.5". Just looking for a better ride than the short arms. I know that i could get the RE drop brackets, but i would need to get adj. uca and lca. Keep in mind that this is a dd. Thanks!!

Re: Rock Krawler LA kit

I run the new RK LA and it works fine, its designed as a bolt on but we welded bolth the ones we installed just to make sure it doesn't shift. I've run it down the HWY at 70 with 37s no prob.

actually the Gen II kit REQUIRES welding! its listed as a STEP to take during installation... the Gen II kit is actually pretty decent for the price, and jeremy has done a great job turning that company around.

Re: Rock Krawler LA kit

Re: Rock Krawler LA kit

Look under upgrades, that way you get just the arms and brackets, etc.

Re: Rock Krawler LA kit

I have the rockkrawler La kit and love it. i have had it for about a year and half and i use my xj as a D.D. I have not had any problems with it at all. Also something cool about this kit is that you use stock cross-member. and the lower links do not mount to the cross member like all the other LA kits. This way if you have to drop the cross member you dont have to worry about disco. the control arm or drop out the whole thing. Might help out if you break something on the trail.

Re: Rock Krawler LA kit

Also the RE drop brackets, you can use your stock upper and lowers. The reason why I say this.. that is the setup I am running. Rides nice, but I am looking at doing a LA conversion.

Hey xjrockkrawler I also would love to see some pics of this system installed. I'm in the process of installing an RE 3.5 Superflex and I'm already thinking of an upgrade.
