fbnewell is on a distinguished road
Default 2WD level (lift) w/ Traxda / Truxx kit installed

Just installed a Traxda 2wd 2" lift on my '14 CC Outdoorsman. Actually raised it 2-1/2" according to my before-and-after measurements. Nose is now a tad higher than I'd like, but needed to raise it some to keep from dragging the front bumper and cross members in the mud and dirt when driving the dirt roads and end rows of our farm. Measurements went from 35-1/2" left and 35-3/8" right, to 38" left and 37-7/8" right (measured from ground to bottom center of wheel flare). Rears were unchanged at 37-3/8" left and 37-1/2" right.

Before:







And after install:





Traxda kit is a good quality STEEL spacer, unlike the Daystar polyurethane. Ride seems a bit firmer, which surprises me. However, I only have 25 miles on the kit, and I may be a little more sensitive to it now. Overall, am very pleased.
