    Sprayed black wheels/ bed lights/ fog light mod +yellow lens/ reverse light mod(changed to fog lights)/ 5100s x4 / under the hood lights/ driver seat flashlight holder/ bed fire ext./ next up will be some tires not sure type yet.
    I have an 09 sport and i want to put a 3'' rough country suspension lift on it because it only cost $249. does anyone know of a better lift for about the same price, or does anyone have this lift already and could tell me how they like it and why. Also, do i need steering, break line, extenders? or any thing for my drive shaft's. The web sites tell me nothing. like everyone else i still want the best ride and deal for the least amount of money. Thanks guys

    Most people that give advice about lifts tend to stay away from spacer lifts because of additional stress on ball joints, etc... the most recommended lifts on here are bilstein 5100s (all 4) and AALs for the back. OME makes good lifts as well. Search around and read the thread cited above about lifts in general, plenty of information.

    Good luck with your search.

    Billy's are adjustable. Rough Country's aren't. You would need the 880 or 881 to get lift with those RC struts. The Billy's will be a lot better than the RC's.
