Default Rough Country 2.5" Suspension Lift/Leveling Kit

Has anyone purhcased the 2.5" lift kit from Rough Country? Price is very good ($130) plus shipping. Curious to know the quality of the parts and how easy the install was.

I went with Hell bent steel 2 1/2 front level kit, $79, & installed myself. Quality seems great. Oh, just noticed that its front and rear, thats a good deal.

For now I plan on keeping the stock wheels and tires until I decide on what kind to get. Do you have a picture of how your truck sits with the lift on it?
