Price: $200.00
Pros: Very inexpensive and the Nitro shocks are awesome. Also, great customer service.
Cons: Shocks could be smoother, but its nothing to noticeable.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: As I said, its a very basic kit, and nothing too special. I wouldn't get it with the hydro shocks though. Shell out the extra $30 or w/e to get nitros.

Price: $189.50
Pros: Easy Install, Clears 30" Tires
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The only problem I had was that the washers provided for the front shocks tore through the bushings and caused a ridiculous rackett. If I could do it again, use the factory washers, so you don't have to go out and buy new bushings.

Price: $250.00
Pros: 2 inches quick and easy
Cons: hate the shocks, they bottom out when hitting bumps on the trail, just go for four!
Recommended? No

Comments: I installed it quickly by myself but in a well equiped shop in 3 hrs. Shocks included dont quite fit right but that may be because I have stock springs that have been well used and maybe a little worn out. The shock body hits the upper shock mount when on the trail and the ft sway is disco'd. Price wise just spend the extra 250 for the 4 in from rough country and get real springs and always, always upgrade the shocks! These shocks also have a bad bone jarring reaction everytime i hit a hole or bump in the road wish I'd have gone with ajustable ones. 2" runs 245/75r16s just fine no trimming.

Price: $90.00
Pros: gives enough clearance for bigger tires
Cons: puts more stress on the already weak leaf springs
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i got the coil spacers along with the adjustable shackles. it wasnt really hard to install. the hardest part was removing the shackle bolts. i had to use a torch on one. about a 4hr job all together. shortly after i put on 30x9.5 tires. the difference is huge. it looks so much better than stock. and for what i use it for its great. im really happy with the way it turned out.

Price: $140.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is actually the 2.5" BB. I like this lift. It looks good and functions very well. 2.5" doesn't mess up the handling like some lifts do without long arms. 3" is all I would go without a long arm kit. There were a few installation surprises like RCs failure to include some lower shock mount relocation bracket bolt sleeves and some missing info in the instructions about wires and other lines that would need to be loosened to keep them from stretching. Great price!!

Comments: 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.
