Looks like you got the tailgate reinforcement, how much does that make the spare stick out? Kind of hard to tell in the photos, but I imagine it adds a few extra inches?

That looks great to me. Needs some 38" Boggers though.

I'm going to swap out the factory rear spacers to level it out.
Looks great, but this will definitely make a difference. Would not want anyone to accuse you of trying to start a new "squat in the front" trend. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: ;)

It also says " giving you increased ground clearance to run larger tires while reducing the nose-down factory look for a commanding presence. " These pictures beg to differ, thats some serious rake.
The spacers that came with the kit are way off. Having to replace them to get it back to level.

Hard to see the CV axle in that pic, but it looks like there's something at about a 45* behind the bumper which is what I thought might be the axle. I don't know much about this kit, but just going off of RC's past, they didn't change the diff location at all.
The kit drops the diff and is supposed to keep the factory geometry but it did increase the cv angle a little. It went from about 6 degrees from the factory to about 8 degrees after the lift and tires.

Oh ok, that's not too bad of an increase. How much did the diff drop? How's the angle on the driveshaft going in? Id imagine is better to increase the driveshaft apposed to the CVs since that's a static part and doesn't travel like the hubs.

I just got the Rough Country's 5" lift installed and it turned out great. I also swapped out the factory tire/wheel set up with 37" BFG Mud Terrains on 17" Fuel Block wheels. The taller stance and bigger tires make it look pretty amazing. Zero effect on the ride. The only downside was I had to add Go Rhino Dominator D1 side steps because my wife and kids couldn't get in. I liked the clean look without the steps but I had to keep wifey happy. I'm going to swap out the factory rear spacers to level it out. It sits about an inch taller in the rear.

That actually makes the 37's look small! :oops: Never thought I'd say that about such a huge tire.

I bit too high for me. I would look at 2" lifts for my WT if I want 37s, but to be honest I'm pretty happy with stock for now.

That makes sense. That rear is way too high. Sent the wrong part?

@Niles, Just ignore the haters. This forum is full of insecure men who hate their lives, and have nothing better to do. Most of them don’t even have their Broncos yet! 🤣

As long as you love it, nothing else matters. Thanks for the pictures and review. Looks like you could even fit 40s now!

I’m impressed that you said the ride quality is the same. Do you have any intentions of taking it off-road, and testing out the suspension travel? I’d be curious to know how it affects performance there.
Awe, how sweet of you to protect @Niles from all those insecure haters who expressed their opinions about his Bronco.
