HoustonTiger's Garage

I just received my Rocky Road lift. I had to get them to email me the installation instructions, but that is the only complaint to this point. I am out of town for business this weekend but hope to get it installed the week of 7/21/08. I plan on using a local 4x4 shop in Houston to install it. They have never done a Rocky Road lift and are interested in trying it. Gave me a price of $350 with alignment. I do not think that is too bad since I can work while they install it and not have to get some of the tools needed, so I will break close to even. I will post pictures of before and after for those who want to see a stock and lifted without wheels and tires. Those are coming next.

In another thread we figured out that the RR lift maintains the Commander unleveled by almost an inch, and lift the front and rear by 2.5".

it will be good if you can make some detailed measurements before and after the lift to see how much exactly the RR lifted the Commander in both ends.

we used the distance between the side moldings and the ground for the measurements.

Welcome HustonTiger, I also have the RR lift and installed it myself. The price you are paying is a fair price as I still has to have mine aligned.

Looks awsome. Now all you have to do is install some bigger tires!

Yes, the search is on for bigger tires and new wheels. As far as the price to install the lift, I did not mind paying it. I travel a lot with my job so it is hard for me to plan an open weekend to work on it myself. I was able to work on my laptop while they installed it so I broke even with the cost and not missing a days pay.
