THats whats on mine, add a leaf and a mini pack. Was on it when i got it. About a 3 - 3.5'' kit all together. Had to switch from a 2 to 3'' rear block to level it out perfectly.

You have extended track bar bracket and pitman arm? I would think you would need them.

Also what size tires you running smokenstroke?

i know it has the adj track bar but not sure on pitman arms.. it does have longer BDS shocks up front. Im running 305/55/20 Terra Grapplers on 20 x 9 ion rims with a -5mm offset. Needs to be -12mm offset to not scrub on the leafs. But you could run a 35 12.50 with minimal rubbing.

if you are rubbing the fenders it should take care of it, if you are rubbing the leaf springs (like i do) you need a different backspacing on your wheels.

Smokenstroke, is your add a leaf 1 inch and the minispring pack a 2.5? I have the rough country 2 inch add a leaf and 2.5 minispring that i want to install. But, I want to run 325/60/20s. I was hoping to get more like 4 to 4.5 inches of lift out of this combo...
