What's wrong with RC 2.5" STEEL spacers

Great clearance for 33" tires and I already have Rubi springs

Running the front half of the TF kit and quite happy with it...

Sorry the camera wasn't level nor is the drive way, but you can see the space gained in the front wheel well.

There is very little more work involved to install a true 2.5 in Teraflex lift over a coil spacer leveling kit. The same components are disassembled to install either one. For around $300 more you could run 315/70/R17's (35's). Here's mine with 33x12.5's. There is plenty of room for taller tires.

I would check into what # springs your running. I ordered my X with HDsusp. which turns out is basically Rubi springs/shocks. With that info I was more inclined to go with the TF Leveling kit for what need.

I'd recommend the TF kit. Everything I hear about it is good.

A budget boost is a budget boost, just go with the cheapest or whatever brand you fancy. If there's an even slight chance you might get a winch and/or bumper, look for something that replaces the coils like Teraflex Performance Leveling Kit or EVO MFG Leveling kit, as the stock coils will sag in no time.

Thanks. I am familiar with the TF kits and several places to get one but not leveling kits by EVO. Sources for the EVO MFG kit?

Couldn't find it on their website, but: http://www.epicaddictions.com/produc...eling-kit.html

Basically coils up front, spacers out back.
