    Ok so its not a full on Ram Runner but it does have Radflo 2.5 coil overs :)

    Pretty happy about it so far! Im looking for Lights for the Bumper, any suggestions on an affordable set up?

    Looks good! I like it, I have a couple, well, one now as the 12" started retaining moisture. I'm sending it back and looking at mounting a 30" on my sport bumper, not fond of drilling holes in my bumper though. I hear a lot of guys saying good things about the Rough Country lights so you might check them out.

    I'm going to end up doing the same but probably with kings. Looks good man. What upper arms did you go with?

    Peattie i bought a set from someone on here they were advertised a year ago, they were the kore stage 1 arms advertised as a kit but i didnt realise the kit came with different high angle cv joints.. so i was advised not to put them on with out them.. so stock right now. i have bora spacers on it.

    You should be fine without them. Theres a few people who have done a similar build w/o the new cv's. If you keep the sway bar on I don't see it making a huge difference in the cv angle.

    How do you like the radflo coils? I'm going to end up doing a similar build but not sure if I should go radflo or kings. And I'll probably get total chaos uppers if the local shop doesn't want to build me some.

    This might sound dumb but what is the purpose for switching to the different upper A arms?

    Ball joints are supposed to be limited on how my the can travel. Uniballs have a little more movement allowing the shock to compress and stuff better.

    Switching to a uniball upper gives you about 1" more in travel. With uniball uppers and a new coil over you should have about 11" of travel up front.

    Not 100% needed, but better performance wise.
