Thanks for the reply. Searching for the right 2wd lift has been more work than I thought it would. Definitely will have to get a tuner of sorts shortly also so I can adjust for the wheels and get some power and mpg back. Just have to figure out which tuner.

Does any manufacturer make a 2" leveling spacer for the front that actually bolts compared to just placing it on top of the strut? The only ones I have found are all four 4x4 and not 2WD. If not, what is the best 2" leveling spacer out there? Daystar, CST, readylift?

The strut assembly is only on the 4wd. We have a coil over style on the 2wd. The only way to lift the suspension without the spindles is a coil spacer. And you are going in the right direction with lift size and the companies. Those are the most popular companies, I believe Fat Bobs makes one for 2wd? Not sure on that one though. And of course you have the generic brands on Ebay, which work fine for most guys. But I would not go above 2'' and maybe 2.5'' max. I have seen many threads where the 3'' maxes out the shocks and gives a terrible ride. And if you put on longer front shocks, it will allow the coil bucket to hit the UCA. Not good.

Definitely not too many options for us 2wd. There is a newer company called Maxtrac making lifts now also. Do some browsing in the engine mod section. Most guys run the Diablosport, Bully Dog or the Super Chips. I am running the Diablosport with Hemifever tune and love it.

Great looking truck Molina. The only way you could make the rear taller is getting just the rear lift components that comes from a 4wd lift kit, like the RCX, that has taller replacement coils. Then you could add a 1-1.5'' coil spacer to that and get a total of around 6-7'' out back. And to add total overall height to your truck, you would have to go with a body lift. 1.25 - 3''. You could research the 4wd kits and see which ones come with the taller replacement rear coils, and see if they could sell just the rear. Would probably be dang near as much as the full kit itself. What are the specs on your wheels and tires? Looks good.

Thanx for the help and suggestion. I honestly dont remember to much about it anymore now ive had it all almost a year. But I know the tires are 35-12.5-20. Wheels are 20x9 and I think its a zero offset.that sounds about right but not 100%.

What he said.... However RCX 4" does not have rear coil.
So you'll need BDS or Zone 3" rear coil
