Wow... I heard that Rock Krawler was pretty good stuff pretty regularly a few years ago... Wondering what went wrong? Care to explain why they are junk?

I would expect them to be comparable or better than a lot of stuff out there IE Terraflex and Rough Country, AEV and so on.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Heavy arms, they have had several issues over the years with joints, coils, shocks, poor finish, poorly fitting brackets, crappy packaging. They use marketing terms like "upgradeable" that takes advantage of the uninformed. I would place them below Rough Country in terms of quality of lift and company.

Appreciate the heads up.
Found some threads about things as well and am reading up on it.
