  1. Thanks for the info! Been really looking hard into that Eibach kit. Between that one and the Halo Boss Kit for me right now. Sure do like the price point on the Eibachs as compared to the Halos though. Just wondering if the Eibach kit would be too hard of a ride. I do a lot of highway miles and off road/farm riding as well. Trying to find the right balance.
  2. Sharp truck! Curious if you put any lift blocks or add a leafs in the rear? From the pic, it looks like a slight rake, which I like.
  3. Hate to hear that. Unfortunately, it’s what I’ve heard a lot of. Did you get the rub before or after the new tires? I’m told anything over 11.5” wide will rub with the factory wheels. Wondering if I stayed at 11” if they’d still do it. If you did get the rub before new tires, what did you have on it previously? On a side note for anyone interested, I talked to JBA Offroad today inquiring about their arms. For now, they make nothing compatible with the stamped steel or aluminum UCAs, only the cast steel, but they are in the works. However, he couldn’t tell me an expected release date. If you look at the design of their arms, they are built with a slight bend in them he said that corrects this issue everyone’s having with rubbing. Too bad they aren’t available yet. At any rate, doesn’t do us much good for now, but hopefully they’ll get them out sooner than later.
  4. I think it would be wise to go ahead and get new UCAs. The kit will give you 2.5” on the lowest setting, and that’s right at the maximum recommended limit before they say you have to. Might as well do it while you’re in there. Just my feeling on it. I’m sure you could get away with not replacing them, but I’d be willing to bet you’ll severely limit the life of your joints if you don’t. I’m planning on this kit myself and new arms, too. Love to hear any and all feedback from those who’ve run this kit for a while. So far seems like most are very pleased.
  5. Good to know. Was somewhat leery of the Cognitos as I’ve read some mixed reviews on the quality of their ball joints, and most report issues of rubbing with wider tires, but I won’t be going too wide myself. I do think the arms themselves are built really well though. I much prefer the price point of those Freedom UCAs, but still gotta make sure they’re legit before I pull the trigger on any. Only want to do this once, and I want it done right. Would love to hear an update on how you’re liking the Eibach/Freedom setup after you’ve put a few miles on it. Thanks for the info!
  6. I like the look. Curious what made you go with the freedom UCAs? I’m not seeing much intel on them, and I was just wondering. I had been planning on doing the Eibach kit with Cognito UCAs. You have any idea how they’d compare to the Cognitos? Also, any rubbing on them after the install? Thanks!
  7. As far as I know, the Limited is essentially the same as the 2018s. Every part number I’ve compared on my Limited matches the part numbers on the 2018. I think all the Limiteds were all configured with the stamped steel UCAs. Mine did I know for sure. You are correct, very little info out there on these. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
