    Default Rough Country 4.75" Combo Lift Kit

    Eeey Guys,

    I'm seriously considering to buy the Rough Country 4.75" Combo Lift Kit.

    I really like it because it is cheap and would save me from buying a leveling kit since it comes with one and it's a decent size lift. With this lift, I will probably run 33" Duratracs or Nitto Grapplers or something.

    So my question is, does anyone think this would be a bad idea? Should I not buy it and just save for a different brand lift?

    Thanks!

    Save it and look at the BDS 4" or Rancho 4" kits. It is priced cheap for a reason.

    X3 save your money for a BDS or Rancho kit. You invested alot of money in your truck so why cut corners on a suspension lift.

    I agree with everyone else.. but if your on a budget i would get a 3 inch suspension lift and a Bodylift separate do some searching before you jump the gun... and your tight on money so do some searching for good deals!

    If you add the price of a good 3" lift and a good 3" body lift and labor installing a bodylift, which is labor intense, its cheaper to buy a good 6" lift. The labor to install a 3" lift is about the same as installing a 6" lift.

    Agreed. I used to run a 2" leveling kit with my body lift and that was a nice setup. IMO, that's the best way to get 4-5" on a budget.

    You have said in the past that a buddy of yours worked at that dealership and I am sure the average person cannot get a lift installed for $300.
