Default Rough country combination lift questions...

Has anyone used this kit? It's a 2.5in suspension lift and a 1.25in body lift combo... It's 249.00.... It's designed to work with the stock rims which is fine with me. Any input would be great... I'm not looking to go big but alittle more than a leveling kit. Thank you in advance ...

I had ordered this kit but while researching I actually called and cancelled it what I did was ordered just the body lift and the rear 1.75" spacer for the rear that came in the leveling part instead of putting the spacers in the front I put bilstien adjustable 5100 s in the front set at max 2.8.. i am very happy with out come. the struts canbe removed and reinstalled if mechanically inclined but a shop will have to compress spring to change and do an allignment. the body lift again if your mechanically inclined will take about 6 hours. I just got about 3000 miles since install and rechecked fastners and all stayed tight, the bumpers raise by drilling a couple new holes in brackets no big deal but have extra drill bits. the tailpipes if you have dual will raise easily, only thing i can think of negative is you either have to trim the lower fan shroud or leave it off I chose to trim would rather it still be there but again no big deal go for it it is as close to a 4" lift you will get without spending 1200.00 and you can keep factory wheels 275/65/20 look good (34.1x11.00)
