Has anyone installed the 1 inch leveling kit from Rough Country? I am think about getting it. Does it make a change?

It's a leveling kit I believe, should bring your front rake up. Get the 2 inch lift if you want something that is more noticeable. I have the 3.5" RC lift and love it with 35s.

I'm using it. Works ok. But I think the bolts could actually be bigger in diameter on the lower mounts.

I did the Zone Offroad 1" level kit on my Sasquatch Bronco. I like that it was heavy duty steel.

I noticed the difference immediately after install. But that rake bothered me from the minute I picked up my Bronco. Most people will probably never notice, because the leveling kit makes it look right. If that makes sense.

I installed the zone 1” yesterday on my big bend 2 door. The front looks good but the rear now is lower (5/8”) than the front. Just isn’t the look I want. May remove the spacers at the bottom of the shock to actually make it level. Maybe just
Like them with the rest slightly lower? Am I missing something?

Be sure you drove it or jounced after install to settle front. Did you check if frame is level - people have differing opinion of what "looks" level. You don't have to install all spacers if you don't want to.

Any option for keeping the rake with a slight lift? Trying to decide how to slightly raise my non-sasquatch Badlands to accomodate 35"s on a set of sasquatch wheels that I acquired, but I would prefer to keep the rake as I sometimes tow, etc.

It seems to be easy to bring the front up 1" but to bring the rear up everything is a larger lift and still seems to include a level...

I would look on rough County. They have numerous kits. I am sure you will find one that will work. They also seem to be the best priced.

Do you have some pics? Thinking of doing the same...

Here are some before and after pics for the 1" RC leveling kit for my badlands. Hard to get the vehicle in the same spot with same camera angle but from the measurements it was 7.25" from the wheel to the fender and is now at just shy of 8.25".

First time installing a level myself. Ran into some challenge every step of the way figuring stuff out on the first side then the second side only took an hour or so.

Did you have an alignment done afterwards? If so, any chance you could share before/after alignment printout?

I had a helluva time finding a shop to do the alignment - see my thread pasted below.

Ford turned me down as did PepBoys. Found a local shop willing to do the work and after calling Rough Country, they informed me that all I needed was the factory alignment spec done for my model with just a 1" level.

Didn't get the printout but had the shop go off these specs for my Badlands:

My dealership let me park my 1" leveled bronco w/ 35s next to a sasquatch bronco that had just been delivered from ice mountain.

With the RC level and 35s mine is a bit higher from the front and lower in the rear in comparison to the sasquatch.
