Daystar vs rough country 2" lift
 
just wondering what your thoughts are on each of these... or metal vs poly!

I went with the RC lift because i like the idea that the "spacers" actually bolt into the vehicle and there's no chance of them coming loose. I was also worried about squeaking with the poly lifts.

I went with daystar because I got a smoking deal. So far I have 6500 miles on it and nothing has came loose or started squeaking and it rides great.

can someone with a daystar post up the measurement from wheel center to the fender front and rear? just for reference thanks.

from the ground to the fender in the center of the rim is 35-1/4 front and 36" in the rear. And this is with a 265-70/17 street tire on a 9in wide rim.
