Had my 2020 Limited EcoDiesel lifted 5” with the Rough Country lift for Air suspension a few weeks ago. Paired it with the stock 22” from the black appearance package and 35x12.50x22 Milestar Patagonia MT tires. Must say I love it. Rides like stock, slightly tougher due to more aggressive tires but I don’t think there’s any additional road noise. I’ll post additional pictures soon but thought I’d share some pics while I’m on a long flight for now. All pics in OR2 except the one that’s clearly lower which is Entry/Exit 0EC3761A-9093-4BEB-9F8B-42EEB886A93F.jpeg 16E74FE9-392D-43FF-B25E-3C7FE1B02A00.jpeg D5AFE784-3DCD-46A5-8FC6-DC016A8AFBA4.jpeg D5AFE784-3DCD-46A5-8FC6-DC016A8AFBA4.jpeg 4C735E5B-E69C-4456-8115-F8638AA0FAA1.jpeg

I've been eyeing this tire but was concerned about the noise. I know the Jeep guys love them. When you say the ride was tougher...did you mean rougher?

You don't find these tires noisy? Truck looks great BTW

In OR2 the wheel/tires look too small for my taste, not knocking the truck or anything at all, I still think its great. I have been contemplating on what to do with my 2020 limited and this lift is one of the few options, but I prefer not to lift 5 inches....I was hoping for a 3 inch to properly match 35s. Could you post a photo of the truck in Aero or Normal? I never use anything but these settings and would like to see the look.

Thank you! I did mean rougher. Honestly there’s hardly any difference in the ride from stock. It’s surprising how little noise and how smooth. I don’t think they’re noisy for any tire much less a 35” MT

Let me get one at normal. I agree that OR2 makes the tires look small. Normal height is a great fit IMO. I’ll get one for you tomorrow

Can you assess whether 37s would fit on the normal setting without rubbing??
It would be a tight fit. You could probably get away with it by pulling back or trimming the liner. I thought about it but settled on 35” for now. I am going to put these same tires on my Jeep in a 37” down the road so I’ll try to remember to post a pic. I will say it’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be. These trucks are thicker than you think passing by them

Looks great! What did this do to your MPG?
Hard to tell honestly. I ordered the Rough Country programmer but it does not work on this truck because of the parking assist. Returned to stock and ordered the Hypertech. It didn’t work either. Long story short and a lot of back and forth I finally got the speedo calibrated yesterday. All the mileage logging I’ve done prior has been around 19-20 Hwy. I’m going to guess I'll be in the range of 22-23 doing about 80-85 here in TX

I just received a quote to have this lift installed for $2150. Includes the lift, installed and alignment. Fair price? I didn't think it was horrible but wanted to bounce it off others.

I’d say so. I upgraded to the N2 mono tube shocks so the kit was $1649. Make sure you are very clear with them they need to follow the exact directions on the rear bags. They need some air before they put it on the ground. Blow a bag and it’s $450

Truck looks fantastic. Glad to hear that ride is still good. What mode do you drive it in for the best ride?
