    Well after a year and 3 sets of ball joints from the rough country lift I decided to pull the trigger on the rancho 4" lift on my truck, not only does it look better, but it rides better, drives better and feels more solid. Yea install was very involved and took a whole day at work to do, but we and worth it. Oh and my tires don't rub any more either. I will put up before and after pics when I get home.

    Did you have your torsion bars cranked up? I've had my RCX lift for 3 years and haven't had any problems with anything wearing out.

    Anxious to see what the 4" lift looks like. In NH there is height restriction on passenger vehicles but I was hoping to get away with at least 4". If I ever went with a lift it was recommended that I get Rancho so good to hear that the ride quality is nice.

    What's the maximum limit of the restriction? With a 6" lift rolling on 34.3" tires I can actually get my vehicle under a 7' entry way ... barely. It creeps me out every time I do it, too!

    bluavalance - nice choice with Rancho...really like the skids too! :glasses:

    TBC -- Amazon is currently selling a kit for your truck for about $1,500 (not sure what the cost of shipping is to CN though). You may be able to find cheaper though as the price was only $1,200 a few weeks ago. Also, Rancho is currently running a rebate of up to $500 (depending if you purchase shocks or not).

    Glad to hear you got the lift and especially that you now have the ride you want. And thank you for the pictures. That's one more happy customer for the Rancho 4".

    Out of curiosity, do you know how much lift you actually got from it? I've heard from a couple of threads the 4" Rancho often actually nets more than that.
