im guessing it's because 2wd's sit lower stock than 4wd's. Could be wrong but i do know 4x4's sit higher stock than a stock 4x2

i always thought it was easier and cheaper to design a lift for 2wds.....less parts to fab up

the demand isn't there because of the cost. There are tons of guys here with 4x4 but because of the cost of the RCD kit, only a handful of guys use it.

2wd kits are easier and cheaper to manufacture because you aren't trying to fix the stupid torsion bar suspension.
