Rize Industries... what are your thoughts?

I've gotten bitten by the lift bug. I don't think I can last much longer. There are a few Super Duty's cruisin around roughly 6" higher than me and I need to fix that. I'm looking at either Donahoe or Rize. Both seem to be great companies. my friend has the 7" Donahoe and says he loves it. I LOVE the look of the Rize kit and was wondering if anyone has one or has dealt with the install. I'll be doing it on my own, save some cash there (as with all my other installs).
Any info helps, as always. Thanks guys!

oh and pricing on a Rize kit would be nice to know too, thanks!

I hear ya my friend...I am in the same situation you are, I have had the Donahoe kit and your friend is right, excellent product.

The Rize is a little more flashy...both utilize Deaver springs and the Rize kit actually recommends Donahoes shocks. The Rize kit is a 4 link front where the Donahoe still uses the stock radius arms. You can expect to pay approx $600.00 more for the 8" Rize kit versus the 7" Donahoe.

Hope that kinda helps

P.S. I think I am going to try out the Rize kit on the new rig

Ya know you are right...honestly I think the large front clip and hood are what make it look just excellent!

From what I have read in other Forums they are both great lift kits, If you are going to go off roading the Rize would be better suited. I plan on getting a Rize lift. Im not planning on doing any off roading, I just think that rize kit is sweet

rize is a well built kit. they are one of the best kits you can buy for the F1fiddy, so i would imagine the SD are the same quality
