I came home from work and found my rough country lift kit sitting on my door step! Now I just got to wait for my hardware and shock boots to show up. I will definitely post some before and after photos when I finish.

I would skip on the shock boots, just a place for gunk to find a home and can gum up the shock rod over time.

Sounds good I can start on it when I get the new hardware. The old bolts are pretty rusty so I'm going to change them out.
