Carli 2.5 - 3" Lift Pictures

Hey Guys.
Just trying to get an idea of how these new trucks look with a carli lift in them. I have one sitting at my mechanics shop for me when I get out of the bush just was hoping to see some pictures of the ride height and hear comments about the ride quality. Any input helps.

Thanks alot.
Broken Rubber.

How do you find the ride? is it worth the money to stay so short lift wise?

The trucks rides waaaaaay smoother with the springs. I put some stock powerwagon shocks on there to. Haven't got an adjustable track bar yet, but I would recommend it, the axle is kicked to the drivers side pretty far

Please rave and rant about how good these systems are. I really need to motivation to go through with it. the more i look and hum and haa the more im talking myself out of the carli and stepping into a 6-8" lift elsewhere. does the carli actually ride that much better off road. I work oil rigs in northern canada and 60% of my driving is rough rig roads. any input helps as long as it is the truth. Thanks.

I have no clue about how the Carli ride, but I had a 6" lift on my old ford and its ride was akin to a wooden wagon. It sucked, and now with my new dodge, I swore up and down that I would never lift my truck again, but seeing the 3.0 and 37's on desertinfernos truck I have to do it. Just too damn sweet not to..

On a side note, why lift just to drive on lease/site roads? A stock foreman/super truck will make it through most sites I have been on.

To clear 37's like on Ryan's truck above you will need the Carli leaves that center the rear axle in the wheelwell as well as 1/2" longer control arms and stock wheels. With that combination you will still rub the 37's on the control arms at full lock even with the offset design of Carli's arms.

I've got quite a few customers in AB, SK, and MB that love the Performance 2.0 and 2.65 kits for use on those excuses for roads up there.

Thanks all!

Ride is worth every penny!!! This is now my second truck with Carli kits on it and will continue to use Carli going forward whenever I can. The ride is unbelievable, rides so smooth on the street, yet I can mob it offroad and have an incredible offroad ride at any speed. There is no need to do the big kits either, I run the dominator kit because of what I do with this truck offroad. Call up George, tell him what you intend to use the truck for, your budget, and how hard you intend to wheel offroad, he will set you up with the right kit. Just remember, you get what you pay for... cheap kits from other companies usually just give you a lift and dont give you the good ride... Carli has done their research and know how to make these truck ride awesome. Also, if you go full leafs and tow heavy like I do... you can do their airbags or even just do a set of timbrens like I have and be set. Here is a pic with my 36.5' 12k gross 5th wheel.
