Rough Country 4" Lift vs. Tuff Country 4" Lift

Both lifts cost about the same. I wanna know who has had experience with either.

Remember you get what you pay for. In that case I would go for the RC lift with upgraded shocks.

I've had four RC lifts.The new shocks make a difference.I like them for the money and what I need it for.You could also mix and match and have a Rough Tuff Country lift. YeeeeeHaaaaaaw.

As a Tuff Country lift owner myself I can safely say DO NOT BUY Tuff Country. Buy direct from Rough Country and then they can't pass you off to the "place of purchase" when you have problems that requires a warranty. (My guess is they don't sell direct because they don't want to deal with the end user) RC has been very helpful on other purchases I've made.

My 3 year old lift has a broken spring... Tuff Country is not interested in helping me get a replacement at all. "buy a new one, Send it back and we may issue a credit to the original place of purchase if we determine it is defective"

Rough Country replacement parts are far less expensive if you need to buy anyways. ($100 for 2 spring from RC as appose to $100 for 1 spring from TC)

Recently I called TuffCountry to tell them that there poor product support means I will not be able to recommend there products. They replied "It's a free country say what you want to"

***NOTE*** RC's lift is a solid 1.5" taller than TC's. I replace the springs as mentioned above and now I got a jacked up rear end. (not that I mind) I may buy the matching fronts in time.
