    Mc joints on the frame side all around, jj on the lower axle side, ballistic on the upper axle side, heim on the front upper axle.
    New rock krawler joints should be on the way.

    So far I have had no wear on any of the joints and the MC joints have done a fine job.

    I think they are a great joint and ride nice. If looking for an upgrade for a warn out joint I would think they would be a great improvement but I would not replace another lift kit with the metal cloak just for the joint.

    So if you are running a RK kit not worth swapping to a cloak. But if buying first lift and not able to build you own, cloak would be a good choice with their joints? I know you have the suspension article. Im just on the fence of saving money with RK or buying the cloak kit, minus the million dollar shocks.........

    You say you wouldn't swap the whole kit, but would you change out just the joints in the kit based on a single factor of the joint (eg: reputation, ride, noise, maintenance, number of past revisions)?

    I already know your feelings on coils, arms, and such.....I'm just curious where you stand on the joints. They're nice, but is there a drawback or are they on par with your other options to where it's not worth the time for marginal improvements? Obviously extremes at each end would see a benefit from a different joint, but for the sake of discussion we'll say a weekend warrior- say 7.5% offroad time (25 days a year).
