That is definitely one COMPLETE suspension system.

My question is, why do you guys "trail tough" prefer to go RUF instead of YJ on all 4 corners?
Any specifics on pros and cons?

IMO, by going just RUF u don't have the longer brackets out the front which changes your approach angle.
Being new here thats what I'm getting out of every thing I've read so far.
This is what I'm thinking about doing, but SPUA. ( yj rear ruf )
Need to know if this gives the oil pan clearance for motor up grade?
I need road worthy with good ride, running LT 235/75 R15.

That's true although the difference, from what I have seen, between the RUF "fangs" and YJ "fangs" do to the Missing Link system really isn't that much.

This suspension is less wallowy at higher speeds and drifting or cornering than with the YJ spring conversion, yet offers more than sufficient articulation.

If I were to lift my zuk again from scratch...this is the kit I'd go with. Everything ya need, nuthin' ya don't.  I'm riding on a set of (4) stock width rear bonz's right now and they are top notch. What a nice riding spring on the trails.

Brent,
Any idea on when the SPUA system will be out???
I don't think I'll want to run larger than 30s (never say never).
I run her more on road than off.
Want the lift so I can up grade engine.
Just need to know how long I have to raise funding
thanks
Richard

Yes sir sorry, the kit is perfect for 33s but we are flat landers down here so we squeezed the 34s but still it will flex 35in without rubbing

Trail Tough, are there any options for buying parts separately from the entire kit? I've got a SPOA YJ Missing Link (front only) setup on my zuk right now, and I'm not content with the suspension setup. Ideally, I'd want to buy the shocks separately and am also wondering what I would have to do to get the RUF Bonz-Eye springs in to replace my existing YJ springs. The YJ spring hangers are only bolted in, so I could remove that and use the stock frame mount and then add some 1/4" spacers or appropriate bushings to make the YJ missing link shackles work. I know the shock towers and springs are available, but would it be possible to order just the shocks?
