I'm done installing my Rough Country 6" lift, 35x12.5x18 Nitto Trail Grapplers and bedlining my rims

It took me three days to install the lift in my garage at home with my wife's help. The rims took a full two days which was mostly sanding/prep work. First I started with 180 grit and it seemed too fine so I switched to 120 and it was perfect. I went to the car wash today and they withstood a pressure washer with no problems. Thank God.

I sprayed all of the bolts a few days ahead of time with PB blaster and they were still a royal pain to remove. I have air tools, but still couldn't get some of them loose. It took a breaker bar and a lot of swearing

It was a very time consuming project and my whole body hurts but it was sooo worth it. First time I've ever installed a lift.

Rides really good actually. I was anticipating needing to upgrade coilovers but I'm really happy with everything as is. The tires are awesome. They handle great and aren't nearly as loud as I expected them to be.

There is definitely something satisfying about completing projects yourself

Thanks man. I ordered it from Top Gun Customz. At first I submitted an offer $1,150 shipped through them on Ebay. They told me they could give me that price if I ordered from them directly so I did. Topguncustomz.com

Thanks dude. That's about how long it took me. I feel like I could cut the time in half to install the lift if I did it again though. Amazing how much you learn about the anatomy of our trucks installing a lift.

Yeah i could knock it out way faster now, no ones working on my truck any more. I was pretty ticked off the whole damn time but it was a really good learning experience.

Man my lift took almost a month to ship. I ordered it from Top Gun but it shipped straight from Rough Country and they were out of stock. Then when the damn thing came the knuckles weren't in there. I don't know how you forget to ship two of the biggest parts. But they didn't give me a problem shipping them out.

Woohoo!!! Just got an email that they shipped. Lol. Can't wait. I'll post pics up as soon as I get this thing on. Lol. I'll be pissed if there is parts missing. I've heard that from a few people that bought the RC kits. Hope my procomp comes complete. That's Rediculus for them to screw up orders.

Wow, that looks awesome! I love the stance.

I have been thinking about a Pro Comp Lift, but your pics have me reconsidering.

What are the benefits and drawbacks between the Pro Comp and Rough Country kits?
