    Beautiful truck. I myself am looking to lift mine. A friend did a rough country lift. Have you heard anything bad about them? Seemed. Cheaper than the others but will it hold up?

    Thanks for the compliment.

    The lift you pick obviously depends on several factors, with budget and application being chief among them. In the 6" lift department many folks have Rough Country lifts and like them. I personally would use RC for primarily street truck applications, and would spend a little more for Fabtech or BDS if I were going to be running a 6" lift on the trail or off-road a good bit. Skyjacker and ProComp run a close second. Avoid Tough Country lifts. Also know that the shocks that come with most lift kits are common complaints about them, so you may want to plan for a different set of shocks, in advance, and put them on when you do the lift. In the 4" department SST and Readylift seem to be common, budget-minded choices.

    You can find more information using the Search feature on the forum ... as well as in the Lifted& Offroad Suspension section of the forum.
