    it should probably be a relatively easy lift to install. what comes with it? Rear AAL and front spacer? i have heard good things about rough country and others on here who have it should chime in

    All the research i've done about lift kits points to rough country and a couple other kits as being up there in the top lifts.

    Point of order here, I believe the RC 3" kit also comes with UCA's (upper control arms) to improve the upper ball joint angle

    Rough Country makes a decent lift but as far as installation, it is usually best installed by a professional (not to say you are not capable) but installing a lift on an IFS truck is pretty intense.

    how much do you think it would cost to get a three inch spindle lift and rear block kit installed by a professional?

    i cant give u a quote for that but to have my 6" installed by a pro it was $650 for labor...so you would prob be looking at $300-$400 ??? IMO

    It really wasnt that bad. This is the second lift I have installed. My other vehicle was a Tacoma, and I did a 3" lift as well. But I have had lots of experience with rebuilding front ends on hot rods and custom cars. Usually working with less space than the inner fender of my 08 Silverado. At least I had lots of room for pry bars and impact wrenches to work. If you do this on your own tho... I REALLY ENCOURAGE that you have someone at least HELP you. I did it alone and nearly killed myself taking out the differential.

    This is not an EASY lift by any means. It took me a few hours a couple days in a row for the front suspension, and I did the rear in about an hour.
    If this is the first big thing you would ever be doing to your vehicle, then i HIGHLY recommend having a professional do it.

    IMO the Cooper STT is one of the best tires out there, especially for the money. they are nex ton my list when my MTR's go on my Jeep. they look awesome and work even better. nice choice

    Still happy??

    I am looking into this lift as well, Audio are you still satisfied with the lift and the operation of your truck? I am curious as my research on the kit has lead me to many posts of how unhappy people were with the kit and how they ended up spending a lot of money to go with other suspensions....
    Thanks to anyone who can add...
