Default Lift/Level

I am going to lift/level my 09. I am thinking about the Ready Lift 2.5" SST. It is a combo with 1.5 in the rear and 2.5 in front. I am also looking at the Rough Country 3.75" combo. Any thoughts from those that have done this?

I personally don't have either. But I've heard good things about Rough Countries kit. Seems perfect for what you what and is a great price from a reputable company. If you go through Discount Auto Performance here on the forum, they will hook you up with fantastic pricing

Thanks Gonefishin. The RC is $200 less than the Ready Lift. RC has a boatload more pieces which looks to be more complicated. I have heard others say the RC is the way to go.

Yeah, probably the RC. A little positive reinforcement never hurts.

I have the ready lift 2" on my 13. Just wanted it close to level till I do a real lift later. Rides great, aligned good at my friends shop. I haven't had any issues on or off road. 3700 miles so far. The RC lift looks good I am too lazy to do a body lift.
