    Iíve seen Radflo on a lot of buggies mainly from the east coast. Not sure if that is where they are based from.

    Looks like they are based out of California. Definitely a premium brand.

    Yeah most that are running it are doing some extreme things. Well from what I have seen.

    They were started in South Africa. Not too popular in the Jeep world.

    I've installed and tested out their lifts in the past they've been nice. If you upgrade to their control arms, they are square and that seems to bug some people but it's no big deal to me. As far as shocks go, I'd be hard for me to say being that I don't know how their JL springs ride - I'd have to test them out before I could know for sure. Of course, you could always run something like Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks and set them to how you like.

    Thanks Eddie! I agree i've narrowed it down to the Rancho 9000 or the Fox 2.0. The lift is sitting in my basement until I pull the trigger on shocks and tires. The entry level kit I went with came with the front upper arms with Johnny joints on ok e end and giiro joints on the other. I would need to order the other six to have it complete. Square or round doesn't matter to me especially since they have a lifetime warranty! I'll post up some pics later as the build goes on.

    Good choice on shocks, too bad you dropped the ball on the tires. But hey, they are 38" Pats

    For $196 each they were worth a shot! Rotate, Rotate, Rotate.
