Default Suspension Lift Kits

What brand lift kit are you running? Do you like it, hate it? Would you recommend this to others? Let us know about it here.

A suspension lift kit raises the suspension of the vehicle by replacing front and rear leaf springs and shocks. This not only creates greater travel, it can allow for significantly taller tires improving clearance between axles and ground. Articulation should improve with a good suspension lift kit.

I'm happy with the older style 3 inch Rough Country parts I have up front. Thats the big square tube links.
Out back are a BDS add a leaf, and all the springs are good ol' Ma Mopars of an '01 Off Roadster.
Extras include a Linstead track bar (with the 5 inch Tuff Country T-bar bracket) and Warrior sway bar disconnects.

I run 285/75/16's and while I could fit a 315, it would be silly with 3:55 gears.

Fabtech 5.5" long arm kit, everything up front is great but to level out the rear i had to stack blocks. I have not had any problems, yet but i do need to get around to fixing that.
