Rough Country Lift

After reading the glowing reviews AtRoPiNe and others have written about the RC 3" lift I am about very close to picking up the phone and ordering one.

Before I do, is there anyone out there who has had a bad experience with this lift?

Also I'm not going to be able to afford tires for a little while. Other than looking goofy will there be any performance/safety problems running 235-70/15s for a month or so?

The only thing you should keep in mind that the ride will be quite bumpy and harsh - other than that it's a great value for the price!

I'm going to order this kit next week. I wonder if we can still get the 350$ price. Maybe we should order it together, or try to find another person or two with us, to get the lower price than the 389 they are advertising.

When you call Rough Country, ask for Davy Lee. He is the guy Ive talked to every time. I got a 3" susp. lift with pitman arm for $350.00. He used to put them on Ebay for that price. That included shocks, all relocation brackets, new u-bolts, springs (and bushings), the dropped pitman arm, and probably some other stuff I cant remember. Good luck!

I bought my RC lift about 3 months ago and when I talked to Dave he didn't want to sell the kit for $350, He would only do it if I bought a steering stabalizer for $25. He told me he sells the kits on ebay for more than $400. Lots of stupid people out there, he lists them on his website for $389!

One important thing you need to watch out for:

Make sure none of the leaf springs are sagging - you probably can't tell before you install them though...

The left rear of my spring was sagging about an inch and a half (!) - but the Rough country people were cool about it and fed-exed me a replacement within four or five days.
