Brand new, and first I've heard of it. Replaces the upper mount and its rubber isolator with poly bushings, so it's more of a BDS design than SMAXX or Mark's.

But they made it for leveling only, it looks like. An appearance item. Not a total lift.

They aren't doing much for the rear, but isn't the front on par with BDS - theirs is only 2" also - I think.

So Marks Liftmeister kit would give you more lift cheaper.

If you prefer this design, then for the rear, either get Z71 springs or Marks rear spacers.

Shockingly enough, there are trailvoy-owning folks who discover the site only AFTER they have a problem and Google for it. And manufacturers don't always research the market and the enthusiast sites like ours before launching a product. I think they're goofballs, but then they didn't offer me a free evaluation kit first. :rolleyes:

In this case, they sent press releases to the offroad publications on May 1, so it's really fresh news.

:iagree:
I found this site after i already put the down payment on my TB. If I knew about it before, I'd have a G80 locker and a better gear ratio. :duh:
luckily enough, this site has taught me a lot, and project off-road is in the works! :thumbsup:

I just bought the SMAXX kit and got 1.75" of lift in the rear and 2.5" in the front. I am putting it in Thusrday. Pics to come.

You could always add Mark's .5" top spacer to make it a 2.5" front kit. A better design than SuspensionMaXX in my opinion.

:iagree: Better And cheaper I wonder about the upper mounts if they use a polymount like roadie said. i'd buy it if i hadn't replaced my crappy upper rubber ones already.

Lift is comming

Looks like the ticket to match with some Z71 springs already installed. I grabbed some shocks from shockwarehouse, so :bonk: Just ordered these, so we'll see. Should be GTG :D

There are now four manufacturers of lifts, one is a member/vendor here (markmc). All discussed in the offroad forum and can be discovered by a search on the word "lift".

Recommended reading: the Offroad stickie for tire/suspension pics plus the great summary at James Downing's http://offroadtb.com/
