2" lift. ITS FINALLY DONE

Sup guys, you read it right. Finally got my rough country spacer lift done
Also had the Monroe load levelers put in on the back and Monroe quick struts up front..
Getting my 255 75 kenda klever mt put on today also. So I'll have a pic with those later too.
(Theyre just under 32" I think like 31.8)

My guy said it was more like three inches lift after install, and it does look like it (never measured) but I'm sure it's just cause nothing is settled yet.

Nice looking commander let us know if you have any issues with the tire size and if you are going to use spacers.

Went with 1" spacers off eBay. They're hub centric, came in a set of four. Nice quality of you ask me. Real happy with the look of the commander now and it still handles awesome. Seems way higher then 2-3 inches tho especially up front when standing next to it.. one thing tho is my shop told me they weren't able to do a full factory alignment because the spacers had maxed everything out so all they were able to do is tow in the front wheels a little bit

I'm not sure that I believe them.

most places dont know were to adjust the camber. just tell them to its in the lower a arm

there are two bolts in the LCA to loosen.

Those look great and you didn't even have to do any trimming to fit them I might consider that size next time I need new tires.

Definitely looks like positive camber in that picture from the front. You'll wear the outside edge of your tires that way.

Otherwise, looks awesome! Reminds me of mine, only taller!



I love how you blacked out the COMMANDER lettering on the side! I plan do DIP that whole chrome strip whenever I get around to it.

Mine are 255/70r18. Took some pinchweld work to get them to fit with only 1.5" on the front.

Yea, no rubbing on the road yet. Might possibly have a bit if I'm off tilt and full turn but I don't think so. I think it has a lot to do with 1" wheel spacers.. I kno of a guy with same setup as me except 1.5 wheel spacers and he rubs.. as for alignment I agree.. I'm thinking I'm gonna take it back or to a different shop and see if they can align it better. Weird thing is the place I went to actually deals with a lot of lift installs and off road products

And thanks for noticing the lettering. I couldn't understand why that was left matching the strip. Looks much better now
