AEV 2"spacer installed, want to add RC-1.25"BL

Hello, just curious if anyone has ever added the RC 1.25" body lift to their suspension lift, just for the extra 1inch..

my next goal is to add new shocks soon and a stubby kit( didnt realize how basic the factory sport shocks were ) or wait for the new upcoming 2" suspension lift from AEV and change them next year.. ( the install was pretty easy )

Like how my AEV 2" came out, just thought about 1 more inch all the way around.

my offroading is very seldom, wish it was more often

Since, I am guessing not many people are running the Body lift from Rough Country.

How about this.. I do not like the idea of the coil spacer kit- shock extensions. The front one's from AEV are nicely built. But the stock Sport shocks are not the best.

*Could I pickup a set of Mopar gas-shocks for 2" lift, or Bilstein for a 0-2" or 1-3" lift, or any other brand so I can elliminate the shock spacer bushing in the rear and bracket in the front..

Why don't you put on the bilstein shocks or get the Old Man Emu shocks,I do believe they would work and are better shocks all together. Just my 02.

What are you going to put on to replace your stock rubi-shocks...

I just noticed that the Sport are most certainly not as nice as the sahara or rubi-shocks.. just not 100% sure if I should change them and leave it alone, or Get some Rubi-take offs, and wait it out to see what the new AEV 2.5" lift will come with...
