Called the shop today to get my lift kit squared away and wanted to run it by the community here. I'm a long time lurker and have read several posts about the lift kits available.

The shop told me they would use the ready lift for both front and rear, 2.5 up front and 1 in the rear. The kit says it won't work with the pro 4x models but the folks here said it's just because the 4x tires are different. The shop said the same thing. Shop said it would be fine and the slight "squat" wouldn't be noticeable. Does all this sound right? I wanted to check with the pros before committing to the purchase of the kits and the work.

Any feedback would be very welcome.

I did the 2" / 1" and ended up nearly level, maybe 1/8" high in the rear. I did need the camber bolts for alignment as well

I went with the ready lift 2.5" in the front and 1.5" in the back. The kit came with the bump stops and the cam bolts. Had truck and car concepts in town do the work. They had it done in just over half a day. Everything appears great and the 45 minute commute drove just like it did before the lift so the alignment seems good.

I don't have the tools or expertise to do it myself but so far a positive experience with truck and car concepts staff and the work they did. Time will tell but I'm happy with the stance of my fronty and how well it still drives.

Looks good. Could you post some more photos? Any rubbing issues? With the kit you used, no brake line modifications necessary right?

There's no rubbing issues with a Readylift kit on stocks, same with the brake lines - no mods needed, some unclip one of the brake line fasteners at the rear for peace of mind but that's with a 2"-up rear lift.

I'm getting mine installed tomorrow. If you don't mind me asking, what was the cost to install it?

$700 for install? I know you said you lack the tools and expertise, but in all reality that 700 could buy the tools needed and then some.
As for the knowledge, that's what we're for or you could join a local club of 4 wheelers. Some pizza and pop/beer and your done in a day.
