    I bought the Rough Country 4 inch kit with all springs 2 or 3 years ago and have been verry happy with it. Its a good kit. I didnt HAVE to have my drive shaft lengthened. But i decided to just to be safe for when i'm off roading. I had it lengthened 1 inch and it only cost me another 100 to do that. I drove around for a few months with the stock drive shaft an no prplems though.

    Congrats on being able to order the lift finally! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    I have the 4" Rough Country lift, all springs. My front driveshaft needed the $50 spacer from 4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers. Very easy install. I also needed the extended rear brakeline that was something like $39. I do have to say that my truck rides much softer than my husband's 8" Superlift. You get a backache after trail riding in his!
    Good luck with it!

    after i blew the 10 bolt and put the 12 bolt in, my driveshaft got shortend quite a bit /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif. and if i do the lift i fear that my slip yoke will come ouf of the t-case and make me really pissed off. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Would you happen to have the part number for that spacer? Couldn't find it on their site.

    Superlift #4310. We have a spare but I doubt Trev will part with it. He likes to have a lot of spare stuff around.

    Thanks for the number. Been putting part numbers together the past couple of weeks so i can get it in one big order. 2" lift just isn't enough anymore!

    Sorry for hijacking your post Bryan, its all yours /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
