Default Rough Country 6" Lift

So, on Friday I ordered the 6" lift kit from Rough Country. Usually priced at $999.99, for December it's on sale for $899.99.

I plan to run 33x10.50 tires. This is slightly (~1.5") larger than the recommended tire size, but I'm prepared to cut the fenders for clearance.

From speaking with their online support, factory 4wd rims will not work. They have 6" of backspacing, which will rub. Rough Country specs 4.5"-5.0" for this kit. Pick N Pull sells steel rims for $7 each, so I'm hoping to pick up a set there that will work.

I'll be posting updates and pictures here as I go along, hopefully this can serve as a how-to thread for those curious about the lift.

Any questions, or if you've installed the kit before, let me know!

Following. I'm happy with my 2" lift but I'll be interested to see this done. Good Luck!

It's under s10 blazer (2nd gen). This is the one for 4wd 4door. There is a separate option for 2wd.

I don't think they have the 6 inch for two doors. I'm not sure what the differences are. Possibly where the t bar crossmember is?

So, it's here! Haven't had much chance to really look through it. The instructions seemed decent, although the pictures are black and white and generally crappy in quality.

Skimming through the directions, there's a little more cutting than I anticipated, but I'm not too worried about it. They say to use a Sawzall. I'm thinking a cut off wheel might be better though.

I would use the cut off as well... might use more discs, but cleaner in the end. Would you mind posting pics during install? Would like to see what all intells.

Timmins_jimmy, I'm wondering if the lift kit is both 2door and 4 door. But I think you would have to contact rough country to find out for sure...
