SuperLift & SkyJacker 4" kit questions

Ok guys, Looks like I'm going to bite the bullet and buy a 4" kit. the only 2 companies/kits I like are Superlift and Skyjacker. Does anyone have any experience with either? The Skyjacker says the trackbar bracket is optional!!!! how can that be optional on a 4" kit? But the skyjacker does include a Pitman arm. The Superlift includes all brackets but does not include a Pitman arm. What is the best way to go here? I've always been partial to Superlift. I know they make decent stuff, even there level kit includes brackets.

My biggest problem with superlift is the fact that the newer ones are not mad with offroadable components

quadracer- where did you see that the parts are not "off-roadable"? That sounds like hearsay to me. I'm worried about the skyjacker kit not including a track-bar bracket. can someone verify that it does or does not?

They have several different setups for the 06 you have to definatly make sure which one you pickdifferent setups the kit is the budget one where you can add other components the system or level 2 has upgraded shocks and full rear springs where the kit only includes blocks for the rear

I love my skyjacker 6". I bought it with all blocks for the lift in the rear and 6" skyjacker springs in the front.....I just bought rear springs from BDS and nothing against them (good reputation and products) but it rides a LOT rougher than the skyjacker kit.....I guess that is the $350 price difference for those springs. I am actually thinking about taking my trackbar off (need more research) I have never seen a leaf sprung vehicle have anything like that until I bought my truck. I would get the bracket for a 4" kit though. The drop bracket could be dropped at least 2" with the 6" kit, should be perfect with the 4". BTW, I vote skyjacker over superlift too.
