    Both are pretty reputable, lot's of guys here have both. Are you getting a full kit? By that I mean are you getting blocks or AAL for the rear or are you just getting keys for the front. Or is your truck 2WD and are you just getting spacers, Need a little more info on what you have and what you want to accomplish.

    Its 4wd and idk if my wallet can afford the rear blocks. So maybe just the keys for now. I would like to get bigger tires as well because i have the stock rims and tires on there now. Also i plow with this truck with a 7' fisher minute mount2 RD so thats another factor.

    Hey man I have the exact same truck as you and I bought the Rough Country 3 inch kit ( 3 inch front and 2 inch blocks in rear). I have to say that although the price is cheap, they did not skip out on anything quality wise. Their products are great and haven't had a problem out of mine in the 8 months its been on.

    Did you have to buy new shocks for the front and rear? or just with the blocks in the rear?

    I would go with Rough Country but get it with the full leveling kit with shocks and rear block for 189 bucks.

    If you do just the front keys you can get away with the stock shocks, but it cant hurt to get some new ones. I would recommend Bilstein or Rancho

    I don't believe you have to unless you need them but not 100% on that, i didn't get new shocks.
