I am running the Proud Rhino SYA kit on mine. There is no place for the front limit straps to mount but the rears are same as the lr3-lr4.
FYI Bryce has found the same issue. However Erik at PR says that there is no issue with the front mounting point for strap (other than they don't provide hardware). They sent Bryce pics. Here they are to help you too;

Not a lot but many are used offroad with just the addition of AT tyres and waterproofing the remote air intake into a snorkel.

This is the sort of mods we normally go too.

Misadventure 4wd has a great series of videos offroading a RRS.

Black Betty is no more - replaced with a Defender but it did have a few CV issues when heavy offroading at high lifts.

I have the front mounted limit straps on my RRS, I got bolts at home Depot for a few dollars, though I can't recall the size. A fairly easy matter fwiw. I'd love to know more about the arb lr4 fitment for sport SC (aux radiator relocation and trim) since I just ordered one a few days ago.

Update after trying to fit the 275/70/18(33.2") Cooper STT Pro's...well, they don't clear and there's lots of rubbing, EVEN with the LLAMS extra lift. Would definitely rub offroad between front of rear tires and rear lower of rear doors(tire lug tread is already touching rubber trim of lower rear door). Rubbing on the lower wheelwell section of ARB LR4 when in reverse and wheels turned. In highest LLAMS ride height setting (super extended mode) it's drivable, but I can't be driving all the time that high. Took it to the custom body shop for estimate to clearance everything and make it work; due to all the custom plastic welding to clearance/shorten/back to OEM look; ~$4500! Yikes, no thanks. So off the 275/70/18s came and on went new 275/65/18(32.1") Cooper STT Pro's. Tire size I should have gone with in the first place but I wanted to push the envelope--and I did, and now I have 275/70/18 STT Pro's with about 100mi for sale!
Very slight rubbing with the 275/65/18's on ARB lower in reverse, but they clear everywhere else. Not taken it offroad yet to fully check, but the 275/65/18s should be good. Lesson learned! Still looks aggressive with these 32s.

They got the limit straps sorted out.
ARB LR4 fitment isn't too horrible, just takes some new placement of the aux radiator and intercooler--straightforward.

NOTE; also had some clunking in tranny, harder and harder shifts...tranny fluid/filter/metal pan already done. Got worse after clearing TCU adaptations. They tracked it down to the solenoids in tranny/valve body. New solenoids in and OMG it's buttery smooth now!

Also have some loose clunking from front end over rough pavement. Seems the front swaybar bushings are shot. Some play in lower control arm bushings, but will have the swaybar bushings done first and see how much that helps. Always something!

If you can post any pics or further info on your radiator relocation it would be very much appreciated. I've got the bumper now and am hoping to get cracking this week / weekend.

Sorry, only pic available. Zoom in and you can see them in front on top of each other;

Output shaft seal leaking, having it replaced now. Also all 4 calipers got fresh black paint using the G2 caliper paint from TireRack.

Update on the front end clunk; new swaybar bushings (for A.C.E; active cornering enhancement) solved it. Truck feels noticeably more solid. But wouldn't you know it...a few days later I started hearing creaking (like an old ship) from the rear end when turning and going over bumps in the road. I'm told there's movement in the rear swaybar bushings, so will get those replaced soon too.

Also to note, we had the plastic rocker panels off for the body shop visit. Re-fitted them with the smaller tires, but the tread lugs rub on the vertical end of the rockers, so had to remove them and keep them off with these tires. The less aggressive tread of an all-terrain tire may clear them, but not these mud-terrain's. /:(

How is your project going? I have an '08 RRS Supercharged with the same lift kit from Lucky8 riding on 275/55/20 BFGoodrich KO2s. Trying to figure out what bumper to get in order to mount a winch next.
