7.5" rough country lift

7.5" rough country lift

Postby SilverBullet11 [OP] » Jul 03 2011, 4:26am

I bought my 2011 silverado back in march and am looking at lift kits for it now. I kinda settled on the 7.5" rough country lift but after reading reviews suprisingly most people say its junk? has anyone installed this lift themselves and are you satisfied or does it really suck. there is a guy here in town that has the identical truck as me with this lift on it and he loves it idk if it depends on what you like or not. i havent looked at his truck up close nor have i drove it. the instructions for this lift say it requires minor cutting and drilling. im not a big fan of cutting and drilling into my $40k truck. i did notice that it runs about 500-1000 bucks cheaper than other lifts its size. its only $999.99 for the 7.5"

Hey man. Just wanted to see if I could help you out on this subject. I don't own the kit, but I have heard some bad things about it. I would also never suggest cutting the frame or anything like that. I've heard the ride is rough and that the lift wont last. I would suggest saving your money and getting a good kit like from ProComp or skyjack or something. Another option is a 5" body lift from performance accessories. I've heard good things about it and it is only $600 or so. Hope I helped.

Lol. It's not really a 5" body lift. It is a 3" body lift with a 2" lvling kit.

$600 to buy, but then if you are not able to D-I-Y, then you are stuck for another $400-$500 to have it installed. Not a bad price for that much lift, but you still have to think about shelling out some cash.

I would stay away from the RC kits. They are bad news. You will be better off saving you money and buying a kit from a more reputable company.
