    So I work in the automotive industry, and my dealer is offering me a very good deal, or so I think (cost plus 10% and 1/2 off labor). A revtek kit with spacers, a 4" in front and 2" in rear, they say the stock bilstiens will be fine for $300, and only $300 install which includes the alignment. So right around $600 plus tax.

    The thing I like is that with them doing it, my warranty is not voided on anything. I had warranty issues in the past on my Dodge and hate to deal with it again.

    Is this a good option for me, and can I get a 285/70/17 on it with no rubbing issues.

    Honestly, I want a lift to make it look more aggressive if anything. Only time it will be off road is when I go quadding. I will not be taking it to the limits by any means, so spending thousands of dollars on something that will not get its true intended use out of is futile to me.

    The Revtec is a 3" lift, not 4. BUt, Your alignment will be off, and the ride will be horribly stiff. Your better off saving your money, and doing the lift right the first time around.

    The general consensus around TW is to stay away from spacer lifts.

    I wouldn't do it.

    And regardless of who does it, your warranty technically isn't voided regardless. They can only deny specific claims if they say the aftermarket part in question caused the failure. Now if you do a suspension lift and they would still charge 300 for that installation I'd say that's a good deal as far as labor goes.

    Either one man, both are proven good kits! As they say, pick a color!

    The stock rear shocks will NOT be okay with 2" of rear lift. Spend $600 on a good lift and have someone local on here install it with you for some beers. Problem solved.
