2.5 RK Order

Ok so thanks for everyone who helped me with my research. Here is what I'm looking to go ahead and buy:

Rock Krawler 2.5 Flex Kit
3" Bump Stops
Wheel spacers
Bilstien shocks
Adapter to fit stock 35" tire on stock rear bumper
35x1250xR17 (Not sure on tire brand yet)

What do y'all think. This should address just about everything ill need I believe.

Venders: can y'all provide me a quote?

Jeff,

Nice looking list!

Why are you wanting to go with a 3" bump? I would do 2" on the stock fenders with 35's.

Also, on the adaptor to fit the tire to the tailgate, are you wanting to beef it up any? I would not suggest keeping the a 35" on the stock carrier for long. I would look at maybe the Teraflex hinged carrier to hold the weight.

Tires, we have free shipping on many of them!

Feel free to PM, email, or call us at anytime and we can help out!

-Jason

Mine doesn't get too much off road use... But I haven't had any issues (knocking on this fake pressed wood desk) with my 35 and stock carrier. Its a 2010, with 17k miles...

You'll need an Procal to change tire size.

does going to a 3.5 inch RK kit require new drive shafts and extra suspension components over what the kit comes with?

This.

The adapter is a temporary fix. We've seen a few tail gates be damaged over time due to the weight.

You may want to think about rear extended brake lines while you are at it. Saves the need to do them later. And if you have a '12 or newer.. Probably need exhaust spacers so the drive shaft does not hit the exhaust at flex.

Just received my RK 2.5" flex, hope to install over the next few weekends. Great choice!

Jason and Marcus - Thanks for the help in me making that decision!

oh.. and you may want to get spring retainer clips, as they could pop out when on the trails. Which, really means you are having a good time anyway..
