I'm actually not too impressed. Looks like it skipped leg day. Maybe if they were wider tires... I don't know, something looks off.

I noticed that, too, but the small wheel arch is limiting the tire size. I'm betting it's the same diameter as OEM, 29.5". You should stick a 31-incher on yours, Jason.

Pretty sick...looking forward to see @Robert.Mauro 's
So am I, lol!!! I'm only lifting an inch though. One bit of good news is, I measured an old bugeye's 17" rims, and they look like they'll fit just fine over the Ascent's calipers. My test rim comes in tomorrow. Hopefully, by the end of the week, I will have it test fitted.

ADF has it listed on the website for

1" lift $169.00
1.5" lift with multilink spacers for $629.99 (yikes)

thats a huge gap for only being .5"

but i look forward to trying the 1" real soon...

Not to rain on the parade, but even small "lift" kits may have devastating affects on the drive line and cv axles, other than just voiding your warranty on many suspension parts and/or transmission.

What constitutes "small lift" - 1", 2", 3", or 4"?

Looks like the 1" is a HDPE (Plastic) instead of steel like the 1.5" which accounts for the price difference.

Are you looking to do a 1" or 1.5"? Also take some pics once you do!

I am NOT doing a 1" lift kit (and 1.5" is too much for me)... that would allow certain warranty claims to be denied. :smile_big:

There will be plenty of pictures. :tango_face_wink:

I just want to know what wheels and tires that is running; because those would be an amazing winter set (minus the lift)

Well, minus the lift, it's going to be tough, since you will need 17" rims... but, I have two rims to test as soon as I get the time.

I also have perfectly size matched 17" all-terrain and snow-all-terrain (three peak snow rated) tires selected. If the rim(s) fit, I will share all the details.
