I'm going with 33" tires, unless 35" tires and lift drop out of the sky. For the money, is this a good deal?

Any opinions?
 






i havent used it myself but ive read a ton of opinions on this set up on the forum. just do a search on rough country lifts.
 






I'm no expert but here is what I know.

1. The pivot drop plate for the passenger side beam has a history of punching holes in the top of the front pumpkin :thumbdwn::thumbdwn::thumbdwn:

2. The rear lift parts are for a spring over application, the Explorer is spring under so those items are useless. If you do convert the X axle to spring over, that alone will give you approx 5.5" of lift. You;ll need to check the leaf spring option to make sure they are right for the Explorer application.

I recommend the good stuff from the beginning. Skyjacker or better yet James Duff

Thanks for the time you spent answering. I've looked for a skyjacker but there isn't one listed for an Explorer. (except maybe a spring) James Duff.... looks like good stuff...pricey though.
