    went back to update my recon-recently put on some bigger rims and tires. scheduled an appointment as usual. filled out a new form with the updated information, they rechecked bumper/license plate and headlight heights and filled in that section-and i was good to go. no charges for update.

    Can a "C" notch pass recon?

    1. [C notch rear (boxed and welded) ] UPDATE!..."C" NOTCHES not allowed again...if you did get recon during those few years then you are grandfathered in. / drop spindle front. (regular stuff)

    Can "Air Bag" suspension pass recon?

    2. Bags are O K as long as they are installed properly and installed on the original perches, no cutting, welding, or relocating. No cutting of the frame is allowed either.

    Cut and pasted from various threads in this forum.....

    Thanks to all contributors, with special thanks to Minihune. I think we can all agree that he's been providing excellent information here.

    Also, an apology to Kalihicop. I deleted one of his posts because it was a duplicate of information I have here. Please don't arrest me.

    Please note: some content has been edited from their original posts for the sake of clarity.

    Just a FYI I heard Recon is now welcoming WALK-INS.

    No more calling to make an appointment. Apparently they hired more people.
