Our Johnson Rod 1.5 inch lift kit for the Discovery 5 has been a very popular upgrade. Since we introduced the kit in Mid 2017, it has been a favorite around the world with hundreds of satisfied customers. With the lift, the ride and feel remains excellent and our customer feedback is very positive for both on and off the road. The 1.5 inch lift will give you additional ground clearance to run trails faster in normal mode. Then when needed, switch to off road mode for added clearance. This lift will allow a larger off road tire such as a 275-55-20 with additional wheel clearance.
Many Land Rover dealers use our lift in their showrooms as seen below in an upgrade package. Our lift is preferred because of the quality of construction and materials that can stand up to extreme hot and cold conditions without breaking down. We use 3/16 high quality stainless steel which provides strength and durability. Our rubber attachment points are extra thick just like the original Land Rover part which insures a tight non slip connection and which makes them less susceptible to cracking and breaking down under harsh conditions. In fact, the rubber has a high resilience and tensile strength, abrasion resistance and operates effectively in temperatures between -60 degrees F to 180 degrees F.
What is amazing is how much this lift and a set of AT/MT tires enhances the overall look of the vehicle.

Do the Rods effect ACCES height too and all through the range? I'm assuming so. Temped to get some but I have very minimal clearance in Access height to fit into my garage with RTT attached and I like being able to pull in if it is bad weather or I don't feel like taking off the tent right away.
