Ok.... I have a 03' Rubicon, I want a 4" long arm kit, I don't mind spending a little extra money if it's going to make a big difference! So R.E. or what? My tax return $$ is burning a hole in my pocket, And I have to spend it before my wife gets a hold of it! LOL rofl
Any problems with any R.E. stuff out there?

With good installer, I don't believe you'll find anything much better.

I wouldn't say the RE is the best. They seem to have continued issues with the arms bending at the threads. However, it's one of the most respected off the shelf LA kits. Like I suggested in the other thread, RE, Full Traction, Nth Degree. If you want something beefier that can stand up to serious abuse, check out the Clayton HardArm setup.

What do you plan on using your Jeep to do? The expense and work involved in LAs is high. Not only do you have the kit and labor to install if you can't do it yourself, there are other parts you'll need. A new rear driveshaft to handle those taller angles, shocks, tires and wheels, etc.
