    Hi guys. I would like to add a level kit to my 2013 Expy. Reading on here, the following 2 kits both come recommended. I haven't seen really any negative discussion regarding either kit.

    Main differences I see thus far are
    1. Price, rough country is about $120 cheaper
    2. The ready lift is 0.5" taller in the front, assume a better Leveling?

    Can anyone speak to the materials of the kits? The rough country looks like plastic, but can't tell from the photos.

    Thoughts on which way to go?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for all the replied and engaging discussion. It really made for a difficult decision.

    I went with the Rough Country 2.5" and 33" Taratrac AT II tires. First I had to black out the OEM wheels.

    The ride is nice, the look is good.

    The kit was fairly basic, spacers and some new grade 8 hardware.
