    Can't go wrong with Rancho, top quality. Check out mfleetwood on this site, he has installed on his NBS truck with 315's.

    both brands make very very nice lift kits. however i am a Rough Country dealer so you know what im going to say lol. But to be fully honest i run rough country kits on my 2 trucks i am currently driving and love it! i have had rough country on a couple older trucks of mine 2. must of my budies run with rough country and i have installed a huge number of these kits and never had a problem or an upset customer.

    If you deside to go with rough country i let members on this site get a deal so contact me when your ready!

    Thanks Guys!! As always, the comments are much appreciated. Here is the link STB mentions above. I explain why I ended up going with Rancho. I've never worked with a RC, but I have heard good things about them too.
