    It is surprising how much lift you get out of a stated 3.5” lift as well as how many extra parts you needed on this kit.

    Maybe a 2.5” Rancho kit will be about 3-3.5”.

    Great video as always and no sugar coating.

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

    N.S.D.Q.! and Army ........... ummm, we don't have a slogan anymore.

    18 JLUR - white, 13 JKUR - white (gone), 09 JKUR - white (gone), stock 85 CJ7 - red - in storage.
    6 other 4x4 trucks (but only have 1 now-of course it is white too).

    RS9000XL shocks are adjustable and can be made to ride pretty much however you like. Needless to say, they are quite nice for our taste. At this height, you really need to have adjustable control arms to help dial in your caster and pinion in the rear and a track bar relocation bracket in the rear as well as adjustable track bars will be needed to help things out.

    I see the link for the kit includes the CAs; whats your opinion of them? I know you have the EVO adjustable CAs installed but believe you saw the Ranchos at SEMA.
    The EVO adjustable control arms use Currie Johnny Joints and they have always been our preferred setup. The Rancho control arms are new and we do hope to test them out but until we do, I can't say for sure how they'll fair by comparison.

    LOL!! We typically send back products that we test so that the manufacturer in question can do more R&D.

    This is correct. If you're wanting a 3" lift, I would recommend that you consider their 2" Sport Lift as that's about what we got out of it.

    Off the wall question

    Hey, love and have watched all the videos and in the last couple I noticed you have some plastic caps to cover the wheel hubs. Where did you get them, size, etc?

    Great video as usual. I could relate to hitting your head. I installed our lift on jack stands, and being 6'4" our jeep Dorothy got a few new names. I had to pray a little longer that night lol. I'm interested in how those fox shocks you took off performed.

    The Fox 2.0's that you see were specifically made to work with the Dynatrac Endurosport coils. Together, they provided a great ride.

    Great video as always

    I never would have guessed that the axle wouldn't drop far enough to get those springs in...
