Simple, economical kit to give add larger tires to a daily driver.

Rough Country 2" budget lift

2" Budget spacer/shackle lift with 4 RC 8000 hydro shocks. Installed in driveway by myself. Had a little trouble with the rear shackles due to the trailer hitch, but by placing a jack on top of the axle I was able to push the leaf springs down enough to set the shackle bolts. Also had to use a strut compressor on the front springs to compress them to place the spacer. In retrospect a 2nd set of hands would have helped.

Coil spring spacers were installed by previous owner. Will swap when ready.

Excellent Product! Easy Install and Cheap. Very Solid but my Leafs are Getting too Weak to maintain 2" lift

Just installed and so far I'm loving it. It's actually 2.5". I will probably get shocks in a few months but the stock shocks with extentions are working great!

I have this lift and I love it. I added the quadratec springs along with the lift, making the perfect daily driver, but able to hit the trails on the weekend.

This was on the jeep when I bought it. I'm not terribly impressed with the product or the installation just yet.

2.5" in the front and 2" in the rear can't be beat for the price and result. Super easy to install. I did need the rear track bar relocation bracket.
