I purchased the Rocky Road kit and retained the strut top spacer plate from the tuff country kit cut the rear spacer down to 3/4 and installed it. The GC looks great, sits great and took a 265x75-17 with no issues. I also added 1 1/4 inch billet wheel spacers to flush the tires with the fender wells. When I can "FIGURE OUT" how to post pics "from my pc" I will do so. 2011 GC Inferno Red Laredo E.

I had the same results with the tuff country kit, end up machining up same spacers temporally.... Under shot with 1".. I think 2" would be perfect.

What do you mean after modify? Did you cut the rear down?

Here's some pics,,, and I agree with 1 1/2 - 1 5/8 front lift to level w/o having to do anything to the rear and you'll still be able to fit the 33" or equivalent metric tire with wheel spacers. The GC is my wife's and she loves it, the TJ is mine it's an 06 X with the 4.0 6 speed, 4' Pro Comp lift with Goodyear Wrangler MTR 35x12.50 - 15

Are external strut spacers for the air lift possible???

Another inch or two would be awesome!

Re: Anyone in UT that can donate their WK2 to Rocky Road for a level kit.....

Sorry guys. Was out of town. They installed the prototype one last week. I would guess about 2 inches of lift up front. They are awesome to work with, and said it should be on their site in a week or two. Here are a bunch of pics they took of the installed lift.....
