    Has anyone had any experience with the new Rough Country 2” Renegade lift/leveling kit? I ordered The ATP 2” lift but I dont think I want to wait forever to receive the lift seeing as I’m installing springs, tires and spacers this week. Thanks in advance!

    Also, I plan on doing a complete write up on all modifications.

    I currently have the right country lift, took about 8 hours for me to do the installation but it is really good quality and I definitely like the results.

    I have it sitting in my garage.
    Definitely didn't have to wait long for it, ordered through Amazon and got it in a couple days.

    I attempted the install on the front twice to no avail.
    I can't manage to get the struts back into the knuckles with the spacers on. Idk how everyone is making it seem so easy.

    Installing mine Wednesday evening. I will Report on the whole install.
    Did you try prying the control arm down with a pry bar?

    I guess I'll give that a try this weekend. I think the control arm was bottomed out though, but we'll see. Good luck with your install.

    I completed the install this evening. I also had a bit of trouble getting the swing arm down far enough to accept the strut knuckle. I figured It out. Used a pry bar to lift the strut/ lower the swing arm even further. Here’s a picture of what I did to accomplish it. It worked well and install is complete. Just under 8 hours start to finish.

    Awesome! I'm looking forward to getting mine in this weekend now, thanks for the tip!
    How was the rear install, pretty straight forward?

    Wasn’t too bad. I was doing it in the dark with a headlamp and one of the rear upper strut mount bolts was giving me trouble. Think it’s just due to me being tired at that point.

    That didn't work for me???
    I put a lift on my Jeep and it didn't grow a roof rack, I'm kinda jealous. lol

    Good job, it looks good.
