Ready lift 3.5 isn’t really 3.5?

I’m trying to talk my self into buying the ready lift instead of the rough country even tho I hate how the ready lift sits 1.5inches higher in the back.

Anyways while I was looking into it I started seeing people talking about how you can’t use the preload spacer on 4x4 models thus causing you to lose another inch of lift.So So basically leaving you with a 2 1/2 inch lift as opposed to a 3 1/2 inch lift.

is this true?

I think all trucks are a little bit different just because the way they leave the factory

If I was you Id save for the BDS kit- I hated the Readylift

4WD= stock height, ORG "off road group"(ur truck will have 4x4 decal on bedsides)= 1" lift from factory. Stock height use entire RL 3.5 kit. ORP use RL kit minus (front preload spacer) if front hub center to fender measures more than 22"

Someone finally saying something negative about perfect ol ReadyLift lol.
I have a feeling that rough country and readylift ride the same since they are both spacers

I wasn’t too aware of different packages other than the rebel.
Mine is a sport so I think o should be good .
Now to decide which 3.5 I’m going with

Id still get the Readylift over Rough Country- The Readylift parts def look beefier than the other.
