just ordered a lift from RRO. Has anyone ever installed one of these? And what do you think of it? What size tires did you put on?

I have one on mine. I am running 265/70/17 after the lift and pinch weld mod. One suggestion for the RRO lift is if you have access to a welder, tack the inner 2 bolts on both sides to the spacer. It becomes a PITA trying to get a wrench or socket on the underside while tightening the nut on top. If I had it to do over again I would have tacked all the bolts to the spacers while on the bench instead of doing it on the vehicle with the strut tower in the way.
