2+ Perch Kit

2+ Perch Kit

You Will Receive:

Introducing our wheelbase extending Spring Perch. We're going to call it our 2+ Perch! This is a combination of very simple ideas (best kind!) that just makes sense. We start with our standard Ubolt Plates, make a perch that looks wrong, and add some wings. ...and you get....

1"-3" more wheelbase without changing your Spring or Shackle hangers! Or, change them also and get lots more wheelbase. The kit comes with 8 - 4" x 5/8" grade 8 bolts that are threaded into the wings which are made from 1/2" plate so you have no fear of thread retention. Test them on your springs and then cut them to length. I would run about 90FT/lbs on them a dab of Loctite and call it good.

These are for spring over applications

These come welded.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SUPER BEEF!
By jonathen overmire in WA on 3.2.2019
Great way to stretch your rig for cheap! Amazing quality, just like every Ruffstuff product!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Built very strong
By Chris in OR on 8.14.2018
Made from high quality and heavy gauged steel with excellent welds; these spring perches will last a long time and take a lot of abuse. My only complaint is that there was a lot of weld splatter that had to be cleaned up before using. I even had to run a tap through the threads because of the splatter.

By Chris Migl in TX on 1.22.2018
The things are of top quality. The pair is like 25 pounds. That's a lot of steel in there!! Awesome piece and descent price. Will recommend if your need a little wheel base stretch.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beautiful!
By Tom Kurahara in NY on 1.11.2018
I got these with a little Christmas cash I waited to use before I spent it on something foolish like food or rent. They are a thing of beauty, perfect for swapping my spring under axle to spring over. As always with Ruff Stuff the price was right, overbuilt with beautiful welds, ordering was simple, the packing was perfect and the shipping was reasonable and quick. I highly recommend and would buy them again if the need should arise. Another great product from an outstanding company, thank you!

By Terrance McGowan in NV on 6.11.2016
I recently order the 2+ perch kit for the xj my husband is building as a Father's day gift. Ruffstuff offers two axel swap kits, I was unsure of which kit to purchse, I called and talked to a gentleman who was great and assisted me in making the decision. Parts arrived quickly, my husband loves the design, quality, and strength of this product. He is now adding a dana 44 to his xj. Thank you Ruffstuff you are now our go to company.

4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheap way to stretch a couple inches.
By C.Avery in MA on 2.22.2013
I bought these a little over a year ago an Im VERY glad I installed them in my 94 YJ. I had to buy them because it was the cheapest and quickest way to get my rear driveshaft at the right angle. Not only did it fix my driveshaft issue but It gave me 2in. of stretch and my Jeep doesn't have wheel hope anymore. I suspect there acting like a latter bar but not sure that's why. I would have given 5 stars but after putting the bolt in and then half away out it started to bind. After stopping and taking a look I could see that the treads on 2 of the hole were starting to come right off. So I just tightened them and when I need to take the axle out Ill deal with it then. If there was a nut welded on to the perch I think it would be better the rears might need to be recessed so there's room. If you do buy these which I say you do Id use a different method for securing the leaf springs maybe some nuts ore try to harden the threads and use some anti-seize. Ruff Stuff makes great products at a great price and Dan is a stand up guy he stands by his products.

Questions and Answers

Ask a Question


Brad B. on -- Asked: Can these be used on a 93 K1500 Blazer.

Answered: Double check your tube diameter, these are made for 3" diameter tubes and larger
Rob S. on -- Asked: I'd love to use these on a Sterling 10.5 but the tube is 3.5". Could you make these with the "nubs" like your Ubolt Eliminator's so that they can easily be used on 3", 3.25", and 3.5" tubes.

Answered: For this item we recommend opening up the corner edges of the perch to accommodate the larger axle tubes
Garrett M. on -- Asked: Do these add any lift height to the vehicle?

Answered: Perch heights can be different per vehicle/axle. Ours measure 1.5" from top of axle tube to leaf spring pad
Ryan on -- Asked: Can these be welded onto the bottom of the axle and used in the stock spring orientation?

Answered: No, these can only be used for spring over applications
Justin on -- Asked: Will they work for a spring under application. Sounds silly but I want more wheelbase but don't care to go spring over.

Answered: I would not recommend these for a spring under application as the perch sits further off the axle tube than most so it would lower the vehicle. Also the perches are 8" long to help with axle wrap for spring over trucks and would interfere with the arc of the spring.
Dave on -- Asked: Will these work with toyota axle and 63" rear springs

Answered: Yes these are radiused for a 3" tube which the Toyota typically has depending on the year
Mark on -- Asked: Can these be used on a front axle to move the Axle forward? Or would that be bad for the steering and stability?

Answered: It will increase axle wrap on the front since the pinion wants to dive down on front axles. I am not sure how it would effect the handling but I would not advise it
Grant B. on -- Asked: Do these fit onto the tubes of a ford 9 inch axle?

Answered: The Ford 9" was used in several applications and came in at least 3" tube diameters. These are radius cut for 3" axle tubes. Some modification can be made to fit a 3 1/4" axle tubes, anything larger would be difficult to make these work.
Christopher E. on -- Asked: Can these be made for a 14 bolt axle?

Answered: These come radius cut for 3" axle tubes, but can be modified to fit the larger 14 bolt axle tube.
