    You know the saying, you get what you pay for. Go with BDS, Rancho or Skyjacker. More money but great lifts. They FIT and work well.

    Well I know this is going to piss some poeple off and I'm sorry but the man asked. EVERY Rough Country kit we installed either didn't fit (bolt holes didn't line up), welds not completed, if the kit had replacement springs every corner would sit different, they would jar you fillings out of your mouth. We stopped selling it years ago. The boss even wouldn't let us install a customer supplied kit. Yes they have gotten better, but there still not up with BDS, Rancho, Skyjacker etc. Me personally I woudn't put it on a wheelbarrow. JMO. Again sorry if I hurt some fillings or pissed someone off.

    Correction on my last post, last sentance. Sorry if I hurt someones feelings not fillings. No I'm not a dentist, but I did stay at a HolidayInn.

    i've got the 6" series II rough country lift. it was around $900 shipped and it went together great and has worked great for me on my 4x4. it took about 12 hours to install. i can't say anything about any other lifts since i've only had this rough country and a pro comp. i couldn't be happier with my lift and what i paid for it....

    I just put on my 7.5 inch lift from rough country and it wasnt too bad. Although pre warning. My truck is sitting nose up some so count on adding some blocks or add a leafs. And check the overall dimensions of tires ya order. I ordered nitto trail grappler 35x12.50r 18s on 4.5 backspacing and they are rubbing the bumper and rear inner fenderwell on the front. cuz they measure out to be 13 wide. Other then that the rough country aint bad. It aint a harsh ride. pretty straight forward installation took me 12 hours roughly. If ya need any more advice just ask.
