Pros- good clearance for 35's and for me has done well off road. Mostly Retains stock handling.
Cons- Doesn't flex as well off road. If your going to add steel bumpers and winch it will probably sag. So when I get the bumpers etc... I will upgrade to a coil lift. I've had my lift for almost a year and it had served me well.

What springs and shocks did you use?

I do not have this lift but did consider it. I ended up going with the Teraflex 2.5 lift that includes the Teraflex coils and shocks. I am very happy with it and glad I spent the extra bucks. It cost $712 delivered. Good luck with your choice.

I have this lift with the shocks. The one right below showing in your picture for $530.99. I've had it for three years now and am still very happy with it. Never any problems. Not saying there aren't better lifts, but for the money you can't beat it in my opinion.

Why not just do a google search if you want a bunch of different setups.

I've done that but it's hard to find pictures in just that some of the pics are not what I search for

If your doing a Spacer lift go with rough country. It's about $150.00 cheaper, this is mine with 35's.

Rough Country 2.5" series 2 suspension lift. $179.00 if you get the series 1 you don't get the rear track bar relocation bracket( I didn't see that in the the reflex lift) but its only $139.00.

rubisteph 10-27-2013 07:02 PM

Any spacer lift without longer shocks or at least shock extensions, is a waste of money due to the fact that it renders the suspension useless by robbing downward shock travel.

That Teraflex kit is complete and worth the money IMO. Unless you are building a mall crawler with no intention to use it off-road.

Eh not totally true man. I was maxing out my brake lines without the brackets in the rear with my BB so in reality how much more do you need? The sacrifice is equal to the ground clearance you now have. And my shocks although aftermarket (rancho 7000's) are roughly the same extended and collapsed length as the stockers as i got the 0-2" ones. Tell me if this looks like im having trouble with downward travel.... Not even maxed out btw. Attachment 467561 Attachment 467569

kcookuscg 10-27-2013 07:13 PM

The Rough Country I mentioned comes with both shock and brake line extensions. I was just saying that if doing a spacer lift, like me, brand isn't that big of a deal. I have no problem with not having enough travel. I also mounted a front and rear bumper with a tire swing and haven't started sagging yet. When I can I plan on doing an actual suspension lift and the I will go with a more reputable brand than Rough Country.

Normaly, you relocate the stock lines or change to longer ones. With everything taken care of properly you could tackle an even bigger tire. Still pretty impressive however and I'm impressed with the travel you got with that set-up.
