Question RCX 1.25" Body Lift- Anyone running it (with pictures)?

hey guys, just finished levelling my rig and love the look of it.
Want to fit 35s but I know theyll look a little to crammed in just level alone.
Just wondering what everyone else is running out there body lift wise?

I was looking at the rough country lift for around 125$, just curious if anyone else is running it?

This is exactly what most members do besides a lift kit.
Another option is a 3" body lift.
But it will come down to more fender gap or not.
I personally like the 1.25" with 35's and a level

Yeah I don't want to go to insane, only thing that really is stopping me is my hitch.. She'll be sitting 1.25" down from the rear bumper and really I have no way of changing that?
The exhaust I can bend back up I understand that.

Also tow hooks? how do people manage with those?

Yea, if that is the case the 1.25" is the better option.
The hitch does not look at all out of place. With the 3" it does....LOL
Exhaust is easier to adjust and less components to install too.

Tow hooks will be a different story.
There are way to have it still there with some modification, but for strength wise, I am uncertain the strength will still be there. But it is doable to still keep them.

Sounds good, thanks for the input.
I was reading a thread on the other forum about a guy modifying the stock brackets to work with a body lift, so might try that.

Ordered the kit this morning, will be installed next days off hopefully. Than some 35s this summer.

It's prob the same one I was referring too!
They just need to be notched to be used once again

That is one wicked stance man

Just curious what size tires/wheel offset your running?

I'm looking out there but its just hard to figure it out. My rockstars are a +10 offset but apparently guys are running 12" wide tires with them??
