Nice rubbers! Are they the stock size?

Yeah. Went with 31s to keep it conservative.. there's no way to lift the zr2 anymore so 33s are out of the question

No way to lift a ZR2? Rough country still sells a 2.5" lift that fits the ZR2(it only gives a 2" lift to ZR2's). I put one on almost 8months ago.
(Did not see your thread about already doing shackles, t-bar, and UCA's. you've pretty much done the RC 2.5 minus the shocks)

That sucks, man. I know the ZR2s start a little higher up than regular Blazers, and even with the couple extra inches you've gotten it lifted probably wouldn't be enough for 33s. I lifted mine 6", and still had to do some fairly heavy trimming to get them to not rub offroad

Wheela... DM me some info on installing the RC lift. I have the control arms installed, and cranked the t-bars... the camber is still way off.

Sorry if I misled you with what I said, I put one on by having my local Jeep Shop install it lol. Little stuff I love doing but I'm not that mechanically inclined to do a whole lot, glad I had them do it too because I had a bunch of little things broke or completely worn that needed replacing that we only discovered while doing the lift.

Working on these trucks is addicting but I'd much rather have one of these MY WAY than spend 50K on a new truck.

Rented the tool, Installed in about 2 hours... it was way easier than I thought... now I gotta dial it in and get an alignment
