Very Nice XJ.

Why did you chose the Treks LA Instead of RE's?

Very Nice XJ.

Why did you chose the Treks LA Instead of RE's?

Several reasons, not necessarily in this order: They are a smaller, fairly local (Chayenne) company and I like to support local vendors. I liked the design with the "Y" link for clearance and the belly pan is hella stout. The arms bolt to the belly pan up above and inside the bottom of the "frame" for a pretty smooth underside (I don't remember where the RE arms mount). I wanted to use their frame stiffeners and I wasn't sure if they would work with the RE kit.

Overall I am very happy with the setup. The only drawbacks are that it sucks to get the the t-case end of the front driveshaft, I have a 14" extension and 8mm wobble socket just for that reason; and you have to drop the belly pan to get to the tranny pan but that's not a big deal.
