a quick search would have turned up lots of results on this. might be a good choice for the future...

i just did the coilover conversion on my superlift.

from what i understand, the rcd lift is no longer available. but there are some used ones out there for sale. youll have to search for them though. dont be scared

Oh I didn't click the link lol. Well that one is only a 3" lift with a supposedly 3" torsion crank.

yes, it is the 2wd lift. its a full 6" lift. its a coil over conversion, so cranking the torsion bars would be out of the picture. from what i understand its still being made, or atleast the site the link is from still has it in stock it because i called a few weeks back. was just curious to see if anyone has used it or what you fellas think of it.

not sure about the 2wd one. from what i understand from some of the 4wd guys, rcd crossmembers arent the strongest and their links arent the best either. their bracketry i used for the coilovers worked out awesome though. not sure what else there is to it on a 2wd. buy it and find out? haha

well im not to familiar with to many "wheelin" spots down here in Louisiana. for the most part everythings muddin haha. i need to find some local ranger owners to meet up with and find some spots. anyways, would you consider the camburg kit worth it for muddin? i mean i know its worth the money as far as dependability.
