Default TRX Lift, are they out there?

So I've searched a bunch of old threads, but couldn't find a definative answer. Is it possible to put a leveling or lift kit on a TRX trimmed 2010?

I'm really just looking for a 2" leveling kit, but after seeing on the Rough Country website that their leveling kit doens't fit TRX's I don't want to end up buying a kit from another company that won't work.

Thanks for any help.

Sure is, you just can't go 2.5". I'd personally look into the Bilstein adjustable struts. All lift kits work with the TRX.

As far as I know the only difference with the trx I that it sits about 1" higher in the front then other packages. What I don't know is how they get that 1", I think it's a different strut then what's used on other models which would mean you need to be careful if you use a spacer
There wouldn't be any dufference if umyou used the bilstien adjustables

I would get the bilstiens, the trx sits up an inch higher probably by like a 3/4" spacer. I highly doubt they would use a different strut. Call Readylift or someone, or take the strut out and see if u can remove the spacer. If u can remove it then u can use a spacer but if not don't do a spacer because you will over extend the suspension. A 2.5 spacer is only about 1.5" tall, so if you go with both that will be too much. I would just go with the bilstiens, there not much more expensive then spacers and are better.

Trx models do use a differet strut to achieve it's .7" lift.

Get the Bilstiens, you'll get the most lift and a better ride.

I stand corrected about the different struts.

Thanks for the info everyone. I went with your advise and ordered the Bilstiens 5100 series for the front and a set of leveling spacers for the rear. I'll let you know how the install goes.
