While the RCD IFS lift and the ORU live-axle conversion are marketed as 6-inch lift systems, this photo shows that the live-axle system provides more clearance between the body and tires. The actual measurements, taken at the transmission crossmember, indicate that the IFS kit provided about 5.5 inches of lift, while the live-axle conversion came in with 10.74 inches of lift. The actual lift after installing larger tires was even more for each kit. As for tire size, 35-inch tires were the maximum recommended with the IFS lift while 37-inch tires worked well with the live-axle kit.
