yeah i know a guy on another forum who installed his lift on a 2wd truck and loves it ! im sure you can fit a 275/70/17 on a 2 inch rough country lift with minor work ... a wheel spacer, possibly triming the uca bolt.... good luck!

just to throw the idea out there ... what i didnt do and i kick my self in the behind every day.... order strut spacers for the front .. you can fit two on each side one on top of the lift and one below the lift for an added .5 inches in the front and throw some monroe load levelers in the back (the ones for the ford f-150) and ull have close to a 3 inch lift in the back and a 2.5 in the front .. looks WAY better imo..... like i said the wk has two different wheel well sizes and when its level it gives the appearance that the rear sits lower then the front

if u dont choose to do the load levelers in the rear yet... atleast consider the strut spacer up front .. while the suspension is apart anyway an extra .5 in the front for 60 bucks is hard to pass up

Re: Cost of a 1" or 2" lift

Alright so if i get the spacers, lift, and the levelers about what would that come out to? Also, why is the cost of a prof. installed lift 2100 while just the kit costs 150?

Re: Cost of a 1" or 2" lift

my RC lift made my truck sit perfectly level and gave it just enough lift for my daily driving.

seriously do this yourself. it might take you about 4 hours or less but its cake. you can borrow spring compressors from like autozone or some place like that. i cant remember but some place loans tools.

the kit will run you 160 tops ... maybe another 60 bucks in strut spacers and the load levelers are about 85 bucks ...

agreed... the recommended install time is 4 hours it might take a person whos not so savy another hour or two ... but its worth it deff.... save your time and money and do it your self ... the rough country kit doesnt need a spring compressor btw

but while the whole suspension is apart ... really consider the strut spacers ... its going to add another half inch in the front .. and its really worth it, if you dont have the extra funds for the load levelers then those can wait... the jeep may look funny... but they can wait lol

the load levelers in the back are literally TWO screws and one of them you have to take off already to install the rear of the kit ...

http://www.roughcountry.com/install/664.pdf if you havent seen the install instructions for the lift there they are between those and us here on the forum... youll get it done in no time and for ALOT cheaper

Yeah I havent really looked into the RC lift...honestly I was just assuming you need spring compressors from when my roomie changed the springs on his mini.
