I'd agree that it adds cost, but we're also talking about the truck working properly and safely.
Re-valving the shocks to work better and/or adding adjusters to them is really no more than 700-800 . If it were me, I'd start there and save towards stock width UCAs that have a secondary shock pocket in them. As for the knuckle, the best bang for the buck would be to gusset the stock gen1 knuckles ( hell thats what a lot of gen2 owners are upgrading to as the gen2 knuckles are like wet noodles and cant be gusseted.
It works. Why I mentioned the knuckle because like the Baja Kit, the 2nd bypass goes inside the UCA and that kit like the RPG Bolt-on uses a different knuckle because the pivot point of the UCA outer bolt is horizontal vs vertical. Fully aware of the weak factor of the stock knuckle as I have the SDHQ gussetted knuckles.
