I purchased one from Glen at Rocky Road. The kit looks fantastic. I haven't had a chance to install it yet. but the ones that I have seen installed worked really well.

Thanks  LongZuk, Do you now when you will be getting to your installation of your kit, I'm interested on the assembly and most of all, performance of the vehicle.

I am hoping to get to it very soon. I am just going through a seperation, so space and cash are at a premium right now. The Quality is first class on the arms and mounting brackets. when I get around to it I'll take some pics for you if your interested at that point.

don't know a link - just look for him on other boards. (zuwharrie, pirate) he's probably busy and not online much, but bet you can find his #
last I knew, it like was $1400 for f+r kit (either with coils, or mounts for air-shocks)

i love the RRO coil kit
goes really well

couple of problems with the kit
front bushes are two close to getter and it wears the bushes out really Quickly
going to change the arms by spreading the bushes apart by putting top bush to the top of the diff


also fitted the shocks to the top bolts as on the left hand side it punched a hole
in the original shocks (now ranchos rs9000 xls)


panard rod ends need to be changed to rubber as also wear out quickly

just entered a winch comp (all timed and really rough)tipped twice and no breakages and 1st in class




flex

I really like my RockyRoad kit.My zuk's at 100'wb stretched front and rear with Toy axles and 16" coilovers.I ended up adding a antirock swaybar to the rear and limiting my travel.It's torn down right now while I'm converting to 22r and drivetrain.I also might go to three link for the leverage,the bushings do wear fast on the front links.
