Anyone Have RRO LIft Instructions?

In the rush to get home for the holidays I somehow lost or forgot where I left the RRO 2.5" lift install instructions. Now I have access to the proper tools and space to get the lift on, but I don't have the instructions. I can swear I have seen the digital copy of the instructions either on here or the other site, and I have searched both forums for several hours but I can't find them. Anyone have access to the digital copy, know where it is, or willing to scan a hard copy for me? RRO is out on holidays until the 29th which is after I will have access to the tools, I have emailed and will post the instructions here once I have them. Can anyone help? just want to get it the jeep in the air!

The jeep handles and rides great with the lift. A bit more lag in acceleration with the larger tires, but really there isn't much compromise of ride quality only a slight bit stiffer on abrupt bumps. The lift was about a 9 hour job, got it done all in one day. The directions are clear and the pictures help to point out some of the more unfamiliar pieces like sensors that need to be removed. 2 people (mechanically inclined), pneumatic wrench, 2 jacks and jack stands, some patience and you should be able to do it. Some things we did that differed from RRO instructions Getting the struts out of the way first on the rear frees up some tool room. On the front we removed the rear bolt on the lower control arm which allowed us to lower it enough to the ground that we could angle the front strut out without having to remove the axle from its housing. This lead to it being severely misaligned so we had to adjust the alignment before taking it into get the wheels and tires on and getting it aligned with them on.

Oh and I have the PDF of instructions but it is too large to post here. I can send if someone needs them.

Hi McWushu;
Many thanks for your kindly answer.

I have my appointment scheduled for Tuesday. Paying a local shop to do it. They quoted me just under $400 for the install, which includes the lower control arms and an alignment. After I looked through my instructions, I'm smart enough to know I'm too stupid to do the job in my garage. I plan on letting them try out some different tires and wheels while I'm there to see how big I can go.

Re: Anyone Have RRO LIft Instructions?

Well well... Sounds like tomorrow is the big day Good luck!
Hopefully everything will go as plan and you will enjoy the power!

Please do let me know if you are also planning to change the tires as I really wanna get the Nitto Dune Grapler but I afraid the size of the tires for 20" (285/55R20) will not fit on my car even with spacers and 2.5" RRO...

I just purchased the kit and will take 2weeks to deliver in Muscat-Oman! will see...

I will definitely be fitting larger tires. I also purchased RRO spacers in order to give me more options. I hope to fit 33" but still unsure if I'll go with 18" or 20"wheels.

Re: Anyone Have RRO LIft Instructions?

that sounds cool... Seems like we will have a copy of same car Please share some pics if you would have chance to take during the installation and when its finished (a video on youtube would be great )

Where do you live? is it extremely hot and sandy climate or mostly cold? I heard that Nitto Dune Grappler is best option for tires especially for desert conditions... What you have on your mind for tires?

RRO spacer is 1.75" right? With stock rims at +56 offset (I think that's right probably want to verify), adding the spacer will effectively make your offset (+56-1.75*25.4) ~ +11.5mm. I am running +25mm offset wheels with 295/55/r20 tires (less offset and wider tires), so you shouldn't have any problem running 285/55/20 tires with the 1.75" spacer. Although, I have read on the forums people claiming that RRO's spacers aren't the highest quality and are prone to misalignment b/c they are not hub-centric. And as far as the Dune Grapplers go, I don't have any experience with these tires so I can't really comment on them other than they do look cool.

This is a good idea, the first set of tires that I bought did not fit: Atturo Trail Blade M/T 33x12.5x20 (too wide, bad rubbing on upper control arm ball joint) so it's nice to have them test out a couple for you to see what you like/ what fits best. But good luck, and upload some pictures when you get it done!

I'm in Florida (not too hot in the coastal area I'm in), and I do my fair share of sand Riding but I don't think I'll go with the dune version, maybe the terras. I have owned the Nitto mudgrapplers but they're a bit too aggressive for me.i will look at the Duratecs and whatever else they recommend and go from There.

You are right, RRO spacer is 1.75".
Would would you advice as a spacer? I am not really experience in this.

thanks;
