    What do you guys think of this front driveshaft: Spicer Performance Front 1310 Series Driveshaft for 2"- 4" Lift? I know there are a ton of driveshaft manufacturers out there. So, suggestions would be helpful. We all trust our Dana axles so I figured we could trust their driveshafts as well. Thoughts?

      Love love love my RK control arms. Very happy with the springs as well paired with my Fox 2.0 shocks.

        Nice! Great to know CDE! I was going to use my existing Fox shocks as well since the are rated up to 3.5" of lift.

          ZacT and Oldbaldguyinajk can probably speak more about the control arms, as they have had theirs longer, but they are a night and day difference from the Rough Country junk that was on the Jeep when I got it.

            Grauler i am a huge believer in Rock Krawler products. I suggest there suspension over any other brand. I beat on mine and the hold up. the triple rate springs need to be paired with the correct shock sense they are very soft. The adjustable arms will give you more suspension mobility and the Rock Krawlers links are solid steal no tube.

              Thanks ZacT. Your input is appreciated. I guess we can chalk Rock Krawler up to a trusted brand then.

              I will start making the change over as I have opportunity. I will be upgrading my lower control arms and front driveshaft first and this will begin my (painfully) slow migration to an increase in lift and 35" tires.
