lift questions

Question 1: Teraflex 1.5" performance leveling lift with Fox 2.0 shocks or OME 2" lift?

I don't want to go more than 2" in lift with the Duratrac 285 75 17s with Tracker wheels. I plan on getting a stubby bumper with winch and a trailer hitch for my motor bikes.

2nd question: can I safely install the lift in my driveway? I can't find any vehicle lifts near me to use for the install. If I shouldn't do it in my driveway with Jacks and stands due to safety, then I'll take it someplace and hire it out.

Thanks!

lift questions

You can do it in your driveway safely. You'll need a floor jack, two are really helpful, solid 6 ton jack stands and tools.

I'm not a teraflex fan but it will do what you want.

I have run the fox 2.0's for a few years and am very pleased with them. OME is equally as good.

Rock Krawler makes a 1.5 lift as well.

you should have no problem installing a lift if you can read an turn a wrench...i just did a 3.5 lift in my sand driveway ...it took me the longest to do the front end..the rear is a piece of cake...
