One of the magazines did a comparison of nine or ten of the lift manufacturers not too long ago. They had them bring a truck that was lifted with their system and then put them all through a series of tests. Then they rated the lifts on several different criteria like value, ride, and off road capability and picked winners for each category as well as an all around winner. I can't for the life of me find this article again. Does anyone know what magazine did this comparison and where I can find it again?

There were several catagorys. Best bang for the buck-Superlift Best hauler-Rough Country Best in the sand/highspeed- CST Best light trail duty-CST Best priced-Trailmaster Most off-road worhty undercarriage--Rancho. The one item they didnt cover in this article was ease of install and fit. Also I was surprised that Fabtech didnt show up for test.
