    3" lift kit. 17" wheels and tires, custom grill, full technology package, Early model running boards, Push bar.
    Just bought a lift kit that claims to be 3" front and 2" rear. Hopefully this is the right amount to actually level it, You hear there is a different of anywhere from 1-2" rear to front stock but it measures out different when I do it, more like 1".

    This kit seems to suggest there is a 1" difference.

    This kit is a basic cheapo kit off ebay.
    No change to shocks etc.
    basic 130.00 kit with rear blocks and front strut spacers and some small spacers that CLAIM to correct the differential angle issues.

    Any thoughts on this guys? I also just put different wheels on it with Wrangler 17" tires.

    here is a link to the kit. Can it really be this cheap to lift it right?

    My thoughts are... don't do it. Save the money, buy once, cry once.

    Should have done a lot more research before buying that junk. $30,000 + for a vehicle and put Hockey Puck Spacers on it :facepalm:

    Always amazed at what I see done to 35k+ trucks... $5 cans of shit plastidip sprayed all over the place, cheap interior parts, ridiculous spacer lift kits, and people sawing and cutting fenders because they lifted "too big on a budget..."
