The guys at Atomic 4x4 in Austin Texas installed this RK long arm suspension on my JK. As with everything else that I've had done at this shop the quality of work was outstanding. Atomic is not just a service shop, they are master fabricators & welders and can handle any job. Here are a handfull of pics. I'll post wheeling pics soon!

One note about Rock Krawler: This is my first product that I've bought from them. The kit is huge and shipped in 16 boxes. But every little nut and bolt was there, very complete. Quality is off the scale good. And instructions are also top notch. Great outfit - thanks RK!! / and no, I don't work there :)

Edit: a few wheeling pics at the bottom of this page.

A few new parts!

Very nice!!

That thing has some serious flex.

I am not a welder so I am not even going to start talking about "booger" welds or anything like that...:D


Your rig looks great!

Slick setup!

I'd be curious how much everything cost with labor for the kit. They do some great welds from the pics! :beer:

Yeah Adam can WELD man. You should see some of the rigs that this shop has built, makes mine look like a little kid jeep! The RK lift lists for 4200.00 and labor would be around 1000.

Updated pics below from 8-2011 run to Superlift ORV in Hot Springs AR.

I'll have it all boxed up and on the UPS (or who ever is best price) truck tomorrow. Thanks for buying it Mike, you'll like the lift. I have pics of mine with the Teara lift if you havn't seen it. Give you some idea of how yours will sit.

Nice looking build. What size tires and wheels do you plan on running when your JK is complete? Nice Tapout shirt too.

Rock Krawler
Thanks! And man, you guys make great stuff. The kit shipped in like 16 boxes and every little nut and bolt was there, very complete. The directions were also very well done.

I'll bump up to 37s after I burn off the 35s that are on it now. I'll keep the 17" AEV wheels. That'll be sometime in the fall I guess. The guy in the tapout shirt is John, owner of Atomic. He's been talking to someone at RK and we'll get some wheeling and build pics to you guys soon!

A few pics from my first wheeling run post lift install. We went to Hidden Falls near Austin Tx. No issues with the RK lift install and VERY good flex. More wheeling pics coming soon.
