Does anybody know anything about this company's products? I'm torn between RE's long arm kit and Full Traction's long arm kit for my XJ. Any suggestions? What else besides what comes with the kit should I be concerned with? How difficult is the SYE to install? Any and all tips and tricks are greatly appreciated. I try to read through as much of these message boards as I can. Someone should put up a website with everyone's personnal Jeep webpage links on it to make them easier to find. Just an idea for anyone that ambitious.

I have heard great things about both companies, but have not had personal experience with either one. As far as the sye, I did not think that it was too dificult, just had to follow the directions and have a day set out to do it. As for tips or tricks, when you are removing bolts off of your cherokee, especialy from the suspension, soak with plenty of PB blaster for a couple days in advance (or have air tools handy). Its a life saver
