Looks good! I like the price. I believe that any of the 2 - 2.5" lifts out there are really similar and you will be happy with any of them.

Basically they all have poly spacers for the rear and steel spacers for the front. Some with shocks, some without. Basically it comes down to price.

Ditto what jcoulter stated. $149 is a real good price. Plan on at least replacing the rear shocks if you don't want them to top out.

I was actually going to get that lift but the auto shop that was going to do my lift and tires talked me into getting the pro comp lift, it was highly recommended since they do almost all the lift work in the county. I spent an extra $50 for the pro comp, and no complaints.

Any additional feedback on this lift? I will be ordering a lift in the next 3 weeks and this is currently at the top of my list (of what I can afford).

It's a decent lift...need to grind the tops of the existing strut bolts in order for the spacers to seat flush, make sure to center the rear springs and/on the isolators when bringing the load back on (axle back up) and a spring compressor for the driver rear will make things easier and eliminate the need to unbolt the LCA from that side.

Took me about 5 hours to do the whole thing (I have the compressor in my toolbox).
