    How tall are you wanting to go and what size tires are you wanting to run? I would recommend BDS or Fabtech if you are looking for 6 inches with 35's.

    The nice thing about Fabtech is that it drops your diff the full 6 inches so it gives you nice flat angles, so if you ever wanted to go a couple inches higher you could just add a leveling kit. From what I have heard the bad part is the new TRE's. I have the BDS 6 inch which does not drop the diff the full amount so you cannot add a leveling kit without your angles being horrible. I have also heard a lot of guys going with the RCX kit, but I don't really know anything about that kit. If money is not an issue I would have to say Cognito is the best kit out for our trucks, but the most expensive as well.
