Lift kit is IN YAYAYA!!!!!!!
didnt ruun into any major issues it went pretty smooth...first time pulling the struts was fun...and then of course stuffing the struts back in the 2 more inches to go....

rear left was a pain like everyone said...i managed to bash my pinky pretty dang hard and my index finger somehow got mashed between the coil and the coil mount...

but all well all is good..im not gunna do a full write up as there are many threads already plus the pics are pretty self explanitory

couple more...and sorry bout the pics being so dark...i was working in my garage and it was bout 1:00 am...ill get some better outside photos today

my total start to finish time was 4 hours....it took me longer because i stopped to go read the instructions after every single step...and my impact crapped out on me....i was also helping the wife build our fence...so total time into the lift alone...probably 2.5 to 3 hours

I used Red lock-tite on every bolt i removed and reinstalled and torqued to rough country's specs

I installed my rough country lift about a month ago, took about 3 1/2 hours total with floor jacks and air tools. Left rear was not that hard. I took off the upper rear axle linkages, they were the hardest to get back on. I should have had a buddy with me but I did it all by myself.

On the front I had to cut off the top of the shock studs by about 1/4 inch.
Spring compressor is NOT needed, it's pretty simple to do.

You had mentioned in one of your first posts about the extra 1/4 in spacer? I did not see any response to your question.
Does it sit level? from your pics it looks level and very good btw.Or would 1/4 spacers make it more level?
THanks

i never ended up ordering the extra 1/4" spacer...but from the research i have done yes it basically will make the commander sit almost perfectly level....but after installing my lift i was VERY pleased with the results..so im leaving it as is
