Good job on the lift, looks great. Hows the ride? What lift kit did you put on? I am jealous I am working (saving money) for mine right now.

I suggested that its an RCD due to the fact of no t-bars, and the rear shocks look like the shocks that RCD includes with their kit...

i think he meant, he assumed it was 4x4, and since it didnt have the torsion bars figured it must have been a rcd lift... i dont think he was trying to cause trouble or question you... he was just tstating how he came to his opinion. not tryin to cause any trouble, just seemed like you jumped the gun to fussin, instead of tryin to explain, and teach a new person somethin.
