Anyone in UT that can donate their WK2 to Rocky Road for a level kit.....
 
...will have one installed for free. I have been trying to get Rocky Road to make a level kit based on their lift kit spacer design. They are interested in making it but need a donated WK2 for a week to engineer the kit. If you have a non QL WK2 that you could donate it would be appreciated and you can keep the kit when they are finished. Please contact them directly to schedule getting the work done.

When I have been emailing them to set all this up I told them the option of the tuff country spacer and how I would like them to design a spacer based off their lift which goes on top of the strut that does NOT compress the spring. If they do a spiring spacer I'm just going to have to become an engineer and do this myself lol. I have been working on them since July.

The spring spacer would be a mistake, all they need to do is shrink thier front spacers by .75" of an inch.

Pretty sure that is what is happening.

Just wanted to put in my couple of sense, the tuff country spring spacer in my opinion is a waste, I purchased it and installed it. It did pretty much level the front of the vehicle with the rear after initial install but it settled and still had a rake of about 5/8 " or so and it gave it a deplorably stiff ride by compressing and bowing the springs out of shape. 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.

That's why I contacted RR in the first place. You can't compress the spring and expect a factory ride.

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

I measured the rake on mine (pictured above) and 2" would be too much. When I contacted them the first time they said they would sell me just the front spacer in the kit but it's 2" in the front and when I measured the difference between the rake in the front and back on mine 2" would have taken it slightly over. I'm thinking they will do around 1.6" - 1.7"
