8" lift with 37s

who makes the best kit? obviously its an opinionated question, just wondering what everyone running or if theres one kit better than the other, things to look for/ look out for? looking at an 8" pro comp, with rear springs.. i will not stack blocks as its a great way to get axle wrap and i believe its also illegal! The kit has a 4 link option or just 4" radius drop brackets.. also prices?? thanks

i also want to do the same thing you do, only with a 6 inch lift. my biggest concern is having to re-gear, and thats pretty expensive.

use ICON or DR they make the best kit. it's pricey but for what it's worth it's definitely the best.

ive got the basic mx6 stage I procomp and have no complaints. when i get the chance though, im gonna do an icon coilover conversion. going from a half ton with coilovers to a solid axle truck has been a bit of learning experience and I would love to have my smooth ride back.

Are you running the MX6 shocks too? If so, how do you like them?

Yes- non reservoir. I like them. They are better than alot of stuff out there, but not the cream of the crop. They are 4 position adjustable, which does make a huge difference.

I went from a F-150 with Stage II Coilover IFS up front and adjustable mx6 in the rear to a solid axle coil sprung w/mx6 up front and stiff leaf springs and mx6 in the back. The mx6 really help soften the ride, but I guess im still a little spoiled- hence my rant about getting an icon coilover conversion for up front.
If I were to have my choice I would probably have FOX Rezzy's, but you have to pay to play.

Tell me about it! LOL I need new shocks now. My ride is good, but seems like it could get better with shocks. Do your ProComp coils seem pretty smooth? I have the basic Pro Comp shocks now, but was thinking about the Icons everyone talks about. I may look into the MX6 if you like them.
