Anyone done the Rocky Road Llift kit yet
 
I know it's still pretty new, but I was just wondering if anyone out there has had the Rock Road lift kit put on their WK2 yet ? I'm thinking about having it done, and would like to stay with my factory 18" wheels, I'm still not sure about what tires to go with. Pictures, and feedback would be great from people that have already had it done ...

I was about to do it...until I read the horrible, horrible reviews about that company. Do some research and use your best judgement. I'll wait...

Thanks for the info. I checked out some reviews and it seems like everyone rates them either very poorly, or very highly with nothing in between. I guess I'm more concerned with the quality of the lift kit parts, than I am with customer service. If the parts are solid I might do it and have them installed locally. I just want to do a mild lift with some larger (probably 275 65 R18 AT) tires. It seems like most of the complaints are about parts not being delivered anywhere near when they were promised.

Given that nobody has posted back and said that they have done this lift kit yet, I think I'll hold off for a while.

Rocky Road has had a long history of hit or miss. I have watched them from other forums and taken note of their customer service and responses to problems. I think holding off might be the better part of valor on that one. No personal experience but several of their products have had problems in the past with long delivery times and the like. Things can change however. FWIW.

Installed RRO kit in my 2011 GC, Cut the rear spacer down to 3/4 inch and also retained the 3/16 strut top spacer plate from an already purchased tuff country spring spacer kit which was removed due to spring compression and terrible ride characteristic after install. So in essence the RRO kit grew to just shy of 2" inches in the front with the addition of the spacer plate included in the tuff country kit. I then cut the rear spacer of the RRO kit down to 3/4 " and then installed it with the addition of 1 1/4 billet wheel spacers i put a set of Firestone 265x75 - 17 underneath with absoloutley no issues. The GC sits like it should from the factory and looks great.

These fit on QL model wouldn't they also fit the standard?? I saw someone running duratracs in that size here I believe.

yes I do have several pic's but can not post as they are not on flickr or image shack, can I post from home folder? Any help would be appreciated. As a side note the RRO kit should be done in a garage the rear is no problem as the spacer sit insdise the factory spring location on the LCA, the front passenger side took several minutes but the driver's side was a true test of patience as the factory axle is so short it's hard to put back into place with the kit installed. They state in their directions, "an extra set of strong hands" but make no mention of a lot of sweat cussing and bloody knuckle's.

There's another thread on this topic where I figured out (thanks to another member) about adding attachments. I included 6 pics and they are both on the same page. read my other reponses to member questions. The kit does consist of a strut top spacer kit which measure out at 1 3/4 inches (1.75) and the rear metal puck style spacer that measure out at 1 5/8. Depending upon accessories installed, weight of gas in tank etc it going depend on how you want the vehicle to sit. I did mine with 1/2 tank of gas and i inititall installed only the front. I measured (on level) the distance's betweeen the front and rear wheelwell openings and settled on putting the tuff country 3/16 spacer palte back in on top of the RRO kit and then cut and rewelded the rear of the kit to measure out at 3/4" (.75) The vehicle sits well and has an aggressive stance. Here's a couple of more photos
