rough country 6" done!!!

I wanna say the rough country 6" 4link kit is very well engineered. It went on in 5.5 hours. I see no reason why anyone would spend 4k+ on a lift kit. The system rides very well. Anyways heres some eye candy.

I agree. It looks really nice. I noticed you removed the lower front air dam. And getting those re-tractable power step bars might be nice too! I agree, mud flaps for sure to protect from debris and stone chips. Looks great!

I had the rough country 6" lift on my 2011 as well. Could not be happier, excellent ride and level front to back. I agree with you, the 4k lifts are crazy, although I admit I never rode in one with a "premium lift kit" installed. I traded her in last week on a 2015 F 250 and would look into rough country again when I am ready to lift my new truck.

I did the same thing...guys just want to brag about those over-priced lift kits.. only thing I did different was I went with billstein shocks.. smooth riding truck! I've had pro-comp and fabtech, before no difference here.....honestly! All my buddies busted my chops for going rough country but once they rode in the truck they became believers!

I too have nothing to base my claim of rough country being equal to a bds or icon lift, however I am thrilled with how this kit installed and how it handles.
Almost overnight my gearbox has gotten pretty sloppy, so hopefully a little adjustment will tighten it up, but pretty sure a redhead is in my near future

Looks nice!
Whats the cost if you dont mind?
What stops me from lifting mine is pulling my fifth wheel.The fiver would be way way nose high if I did.Oh and I wouldnt be able to park in the garage anymore.But. I love the look!

I know this is an old post, but I just did some looking around and i think this just confirms what lift I want to go with.

About a month ago I traded in my 06 F150 on an 2011 F250 6.2L.

The F150 had an RCX lift on it and I was very pleased with the quality. For what the RCX lifts cost I just don't see how you can go wrong!

Very nice looking truck by the way!

Cheers

Lift is holding up well. Went from 35s to 37s since I put it on..also added procomp traction bars. Steering box ended up being fine, make sure you tighten the living **** out of the pitman arm bolt!

Thanks for the follow up Suzuki0702!

I talked with RC today and I am leaning towards the 4.5" lift for the Diesel. I was told the lift will work find on my truck if I get some gas specific 4" coils. It would cost me 50$ more to go this route.

Just not entirely sure I want a full 6" of lift since I pull a trailer...?

Curious, can you tell me exactly how much lift the Rear Blocks of the 6" give?

Appreciate the feedback!

Cheers

Nemi

Just wanted to say thanks again Suzuki0702!

I ordered my 6" RCX lift today! For what I paid I just couldn't pass on it! It will be bit before being able to get wheels and tires, but at least I am a step a head!

Cheers

X2 on the pitman arm nut, it needs to be tight plus thread locker.

Thanks for the heads up! I will use all the proper tools and torq specs to get this right. Should have the lift today when I get home.

With any luck I'll have it installed Sunday.

I would also like to know how tall the rear blocks are. AFAIK a properly designed lift spring should not have a block taller than what comes from the factory.

pretty sure the lift blocks are 5" tall.. they are pretty massive. i didnt experience any axle wrap that i could feel, but the traction bars lock the rear end sway to zero. I pull a trailer every day jrburcell. i have my tool trailer that is a 7x14 dual axle thats around 6k. Then haul an mini excavator and skidsteer. Mini weighs in around 10k and skid is around 7k total weight, have no problems ever
