Thanks for all the replies, even the one basically calling me fing retarded. My truck does not have pvh, I did cut off the jack points. And yeah it will flex a little with the sway bar disconnected as I said earlier. The shop that looked it over does lots of RCD kits, they are also the reccomended installer in my area. I will try to get pics up. I sent pics to RCD and after four months they havent even looked at them yet. And it looks like I might get my replacement part in a month if it isnt yet another empty promise. (drives side subframe connecter.. the bar that connects the too drop brackets.)

I would have loved to get the dixon kit. Just wasnt in the cards. To much fabrication for the amount of time I have to work on the truck. Plus I dont trust my welds on suspension components, too important for m mediocre at best welds.

I definately wasnt expecting a caddy like ride unless you consider the superlift kit to give a caddy ride, because I was only expecting it to ride as good as the superlift with a bit better traction off road.

I have been wheeling the **** out of this ranger since I first bought it nearly 8 years ago, it is locked front and rear. I go to hollister hills pretty frequently and have driven many lifted trucks. I would say mine rides worst than most. I dont know what the deal is. Perhaps I did install something wrong, perhaps a part was machined incorrectly and I did not notice it. I dont know, my major gripe is that RCD is not helping me figure it out at all. four months and they havent even looked at the pictures of the installed kit yet. I guess that is ok for you guys so disregard my warning. Ijust expect better customer service when I shell out that much money for a kit. I am truley glad that I seem to be alone in this matter. I just wanted people considering buying the kit to be aware that a problem with customer service does exist. Even so one bad experience isnt too bad considering the number of positive replies so maybe their is hope.

i would say its decent for stock geometry and still ifs..


you didnt expect 24" of travel and the ride quality of a caddy for $2300 did you?
