did a thing to the hoe back in april, rough country 6". I was going to just use a leveling kit from suspension maxx, even bought it (and the rough country one, way before) but then I realized lets just get it done. Shes rolling on OEM 20's with Nitto Trail Grapplers. For those of you wondering if the oem wheels will fit with this lift, I used rough country spacers front and rear, the front has .25" with no rubbing, the rear has 2", but after looking things over I am thinking the front doesnt need spacers at all and the rear could do with 1" spacers. loving the extra height, not loving 12-13 mpg, but ya gotta pay to play!

@rick1024 - job well done!

I think, since you're running the 20s, you don't need the front wheel spacer. Just gotta make sure you're not rubbing on the inner tie rod, that seems to be the culprit but mostly with 18s and a 4-6" lift...

Did your lift come with rear trailing arm drop brackets or panhard bar bracket? I had to get both to eliminate a high speed wobble coming from the rear suspension
The adjustable panhard bar was nice to center the rear axle after lifting it it becomes off center

Looks like it, the trailing arms are bolted onto brand new brackets
