Question Which lift to get?!?!

I want 6 inches. I want 38s. I know these two things. But WHAT LIFT?!
Here are my top choices:
-Kelderman: yeah...ooookay.
-Rize: awesome kits, but pricey
-Donahoe Racing: My buddy has a 7" kit on his 06 Harley, looks awesome, pricey, once again.
-SkyJacker: seems like a good kit, see lot's of them, heard the powdercoating isn't too durable.
-Fabtech: haven't heard a down side to these kits yet.
-Superlift: Heard it was the "PepBoy's" lift kit, but they do look like a strong kit.
-Pro Comp: Seems kind of cheap, but I'm not sure

I hope no one was hurt by what I've heard. I'm sure all these kits have pros and cons. I want to know them! I'm hoping to get a lift on my truck by summer time. I've had the toughest time deciding which kit to go with and would really like some help.
I want my truck to sit tall. I don't want to go 8" because of tire gap, but want to get the most out of 6" i can.

I don't know who told you super lift were "pepboys" lifts, but they are out in left field. I've built my own rock crawlers and been in the 4x4 world for many years now. SuperLift is one of the better out of the box lifts, compare to skyjacker, procomp etc. If I do a lift on my truck, it's going to be Either Superlift or Skyjacker. I also like the 4 link kit Superlift offers for the front end. you don't have to buy it right away, but later on you can.
