Rocky Road budget lift any good?

Reading up on this lift and noticed it was an over the top type spacer just wondering if any of you are running this lift and your reviews. Thanks

Stay away from RRO,and stay away from OTT spacer lifts.

The Daystar spacer lift is 1000000000000000 times better then anything that RRO sells.

Though in 5000miles or so your going to wish you got a real lift because the ride from a spacer lift get's real harsh.




Oh and don't forget the "not included" stuff you need to do like extended brake lines,longer shocks(if not already included),and extended bumpstops to go with any lift.

X2 my daystar lift is running like a tank. Save your money for real lift like the JBA Adjust A Strut

So it doesn't keep the factory feel like most of the lifts claim?

Any word on the OME lift and what would the ballpark price be on it?

I am in need of new tires very soon and would like to get 245/75/16's but def need a lift too and working on a budget. Too bad there arent many options for us KK owners yet. I would try the Rock Krawler but dont see how that is much different from RRO or Daystar.

Thanks for the help

I have a couple buddies using the Rocky Road budget lift on their Libertys, they have always done great. I picked up their Rockfather kit for my KK.

The Daystar kits using the spacer that goes inside of the strut. Never sounded like a good idea to any of us. Not sure why someone would think that's better.

Thanks for the reply. I think i am gonna order it and give it a shot since i haven't heard anyone running this on there KK. It def sounds like a better option than the daystar, i have heard plenty of bad reviews of the daystar too.

Skip the spacer lifts,will cost more $$$ in the long run then doing it right the 1st time.
