What size tires are you gonna run?... Are you ordering the RCX? and are you gonna use it offroad?

I'm just curious... I had some problems with my RCX on 39s which is the reason I got rid of the RCX... I live in a pot hole ridden state though

The other kids truck I posted, he said he had no problems, RCX on 40s... He has since sold the truck... He drove on the flat roads in Florida...

And from what I can see the third pic on this page is a 6" Fabtech on 38s... I bet he has no problems, the Fabtech is a great IFS lift...

I'm running 36's with the RCX lift with no problems, I'm thinking about going with a BL and bigger tires, just curious, what kind of problems were you having?

I was dealing with death wobble... And replacing parts every couple-few months...

The wobble was extremely violent (with the 39s, minor and intermittent with the 37s depending on replacing parts)... I have video of it on my YouTube channel, jdasilva644 if you'd like to visit...

I replaced the entire front end twice in 7 months... (hub assemblies, all 4 ball joints, all 4 tie rod ends, Pitman arm, idler arm etc etc...) Just couldn't win lol... Had a dual steering stabilizer as well...

Tires were 33x12.5s for a couple weeks with the setup, then 37x12.5s for 4 or 5 months then the 39x15s which ended up turning the truck into a lawn ornament for a couple weeks while I replaced the entire front end again... Then in a month it was wobble city again with worn parts...
