which lift

me and my buddy are throwing the idea around about lifting our trucks. Im not going to go over a 4" or less. I like the look of the superdutys at the 4" range with 35's. What lifts do you recomend? What are peoples opinions on the superlifts? By the way both of our trucks are 05's.

superlifts are a good product but if your only going with a 4" or less i would suggest Pro-Comp... its the best bang for your bucks setup....let me know if your interested and ill hook you up....

which shocks did you get? yours is leaf sprung in the front, mine is coil over, Im guessing mine may be a little bit more work.

a guy i know had a 2006 with a 8'' skyjacker ( i know you only want 4'') but he had the 37/13.50 with a 20'' weld rim and it rode like a cadillac. i am trying to decide on what lift i am going to get for my 03 and skyjacker is definately one to consider

Keep in mind that a 4" lift may not clear 35" tires depending on the rims you may later choose. I have a 6" procomp and my 325/55/22's are rubbing when turned all the way. My old set of 35/18's barely cleared. unless you like stock width rims or 35" or smaller tires than a 4" will be good. Just something to consider.

Ive got an 8inch BDS full spring kit on my 03 250 with 37x13.50 r 17s and it rides like a truck. Very stiff and bouncy but its what i was lookin for. Great off-road, rough on-road.
