New Rough Country 2.5 Progressive rate Spring Lift and 1.25 Body Lift

Another forum is running a contest, where you have a chance to win a Rough Country suspension. I was lucky enough to be asked to try it before the contest and give them my opinion. My 08 was bone stock (Rubi HD Suspension), and was brought to the RC facility. RC installed their new 2.5 inch progressive rate spring kit, RC 2.2 shocks, and their new1.25 in body lift. 35x12.5x17 Cepek Mud Country's were installed also.

I've put about 250 road miles on so far and I'm impressed. The powder coating and quality of the springs look great and with the 2.2 shocks, the ride is firm but not overly stiff, much better than stock. The JK sits level now.

The 1.25 inch body lift looks very clean, no noticeable unsightly gaps. The T-case and tranny shift smooth.

So far so good , I hope to wheel it this weekend, I'll let you know.

I'll also post some before and after pics this weekend.

I'm right there with you- I just installed the same kit on my 4dr. Gonna take it out wheeling tomorrow, and then make a complete post/review of them. I want to flex it out before I review. But my impressions so far are very good.

500 mile check, re-torqued all tight, I adjusted the headlights to 36" at 25'. If I remember correctly it was 3 turns counter-clockwise of adjustment. Didn't get any flashes on the way home, and visibility was as good as OE Jeep headlights get. This thing is the bomb to drive now, I feel like I'm back in a Jeep.
