At that ride height you can probably stuff 37's under there.
    I bet 40's would even fit..lol, 10 INCHES ..wow thats a monster truck...hehehe

    well personally i dont like fabtech. i would go with the rcx lift over the fabtech. but if money isnt tight i would go with the CST 8" lift. i have their 4.5" and love it. CST is a lot more expensice but you get what you pay for.

    The Fabtech is listed as a 6 inch; however, actually measures closer to 8 inches.
    I believe the Rough Country 7.5 kit is their 5 inch kit with a 2.5 inch spacer which leaves you with not the greatest of angles to begin with. Stack another 2.5 spacer on top of that and I certainly would not want to drive your truck. I have heard a lot of complaints about the RC 7.5 kit. As I mentioned the Fabtech actually measures closer to 8 inches; however, since it is a full drop it gives you great front end angles to which you could add a front end spacer and be fine.

    CST suspension has a 8" lift for the NBS trucks. No drive shaft mods needed.

    I'm with Bobby. Rough Country really dropped the ball with that 7.5" kit. It's their 5" kit with a larger spacer and obscenely large rear blocks (6.5" blocks!!!). Thats some pretty "awesome" R & D right there. Anyway, the angles with this kit are essentially maxed out, so adding a spacer would be suicide for your truck and maybe you. RC requires you to cut off the droop stops, so the upper control arms don't hit, and that's obviously due to spindles that are designed for a 5" kit. So you can also count on stome steep TRE angles too. Throw in a diff drop for a 5" kit and your CV's are maxed as well. I had the RC 3" kit on my truck 3 yrs ago and it was total freakin' trash, as was RC's customer service. There is a reason RC is so cheap.

    Fabtech on the other hand is a very well designed and quality kit that will net you close to 8" of total lift. With the Fabtech kit, you will get very flat angles, so the addition of a 1.5" - 2" spacer would work okay.

    Hey guy's i got the lift on today the rough country 7.5 inch lift and it's pretty amazing and allot taller than i expected the guy's at the dealership said they got it installed this is 2 pple today was a off day they are my buddies they did it in 5 hours! that's how easy it was and how much more rcx has improved with lift's and the truck actually rides allot smoother in the front than before..
