Default Anyone running a Full Traction LA kit???

I am planning on putting a LA kit on my jeep this winter and have been thinking about using Full Traction instead of RE. I like the 3 link rear idea.
Anyone got one of these kits? How do you like it? How does it handle on the road?
Looking into the pro's and con's between them and RE.

I like that Nth Degree kit, but isn't it like $1000+ more than the other long arm kits? Not that it matters to me, I don't have a TJ, but just asking.

the full traction is nice but there top rear tri link is not adjustable. thats bad. the nth stuff is probobly the best kit out there right now. if you dont want to spend the money maybe look at the new rockkrawler kit. they had a lot of bad reviews when they first came out but they have a new kit called the x-factor. check it out you can get one of those for 1800 shipped to your door! and is complete bolt on no more welding. look around on pirate for used ones, i have a line on a R,E kit 5.5 for 1100 bucks! the guy will be taking it off soon! if you just drive down the road then any long arm will be nice!

Hey, I wheel my jeep. In fact, it only rarely goes down the road. It has only been driven on the road like 4 times in the last 3 months.
