Rough Country?????

anyone use Rough Country lift kits or anything like that???

I notice costs on lifts are high for anything over a leveling kit, but rough country has a 3" lift kit I can get for around $450 that would fit my budget better, and give me more than a leveling kit.

the kit includes a +3" front spring, 2" blocks and u-bolts for the rear, 4 nitrogen shocks, and track bar relocation hardware.

I had this kit last year,its Ok IMO.
Springs rode great,leveled out my 350
w/out needing to run the rear blocks.

The "relocation bracket" for the trac-bar
is nothing more than 2 spacers they have
you install between the trac-bar,and frame.

has anyone else used ANYTHING from Rough Country????????

kinda wondering why my local shop doesn't use em at all and hasn't seen much with em installed. I was warned about going too cheap, but this kit seems like a decent deal considering the amount of the lift. A 4" or 6" lift would run me about $1200-1700 which I cant swing til I'm outta school.

ive never used them before either.... you can get a 4" pro-comp for under $900.00... and i dont think youll need the rear blocks.... if you want a good kit tahts cheaper than going for a full 4" susp you can do the 3.5" shackle/hanger kit... i ran one of them on my truck for over 2 years and it did great......
