3" top gun customs lift

The rough country lift is not doing it for me. I see pictures and don't feel like there is enough of a lift. I think it needs a bit more and I was wondering is anyone is running the 3" front 2" back top gun customs lift from eBay

if you want to lift more than the rc lift then the only good option is OME HD springs. Otherwise you need to be looking @ a superlift which of course is significantly more.

Yep, you nailed it lucky.

I gave some thought to getting a superlift.

The biggest deterrent for me isn't the price - it's the fact that Big Blue wouldn't fit in my storage unit anymore - I only have about an inch clearance now as it is.

That and a superlift would make your tires look too small, which of course means more tire and even greater ride height.

You could pull off your rack and crossbars and gain back a few inches of clearance, but then you have to store that stuff and that doesn't sound terribly convenient.

I can just barely get my XK into my garage... its too full of kids stuff to park it in there though.

Yea.....my roof rack comes off about every year and a half or so, to be lightly sanded down and re-painted.

That's really the only time I mess with it, outside of normal use.

I don't understand that though. It's still a steel spacer... there's really no difference between that and rough country except an inch

Superlift? Wrong it completely relocates where the control arms bolt in.

OME? Also wrong these are new taller springs.

The "Heavy Metal" Lift kits, like the top guy customs ones are known to lift less than advertised.

No not superlift or OME, just the topgun one. I spoke to a rep to get he exact measurements of the spacers and they are larger than the rough country ones. I am just looking for anyone who has possible run the lift so I could see it.

That might be a tough task.

I've never heard of this lift - or seen it mentioned on this forum - until now.

If you're really that interested in it, you might have to man up and be the guinea pig.

Alrighty! Also, do you happen to know the height of the rough country spacers? I am trying to compare the height of both of the lifts and cannot find the size anywhere.
