Which Lift?

Which lift kit would you get or recommend and why? I am currently looking at the Pro Comp 6" Stage II with rear springs and the Rough Country 6" 4 link with rear springs. Money is an object. I would like to stay under $2k, but less is better. I am currently running 35's and may go to 37's in the future. I plan on getting cut-out flares so I dont want to go up to an 8" lift. What are your thoughts?

To be honest haven't heard great things about Pro-comp and they are alittle over priced for what it is......I heard that Rough Country is a great value buy, what shocks are planning on running and more importantly what do you use the truck for

pro comp 8" lift comes with rear springs and fits 37"s easy for only $1295. Then a 4 link upgrade is only $695. I wouldnt do the cutouts because there aint going back after that.

I have bilsteins now, but will probably run whatever comes with the kit for now and get bilsteins again later. Mostly the truck is used for daily driving. I occaisionaly go off road, when hunting and riding the quads, and do pull a small trailer and large 5th wheel occaisionally. We are actually trying to sell the 5th wheel to down size.

Ok and what are the best prices of the two kits that you have found?

Where did you see that at? I dont really want to go 8" since it may be a couple years before I upgrade to 37's. I was actually thinking of the cut outs prior to the lift, but since I am getting a lift now, i may not get the flares. My new wheels are 18x10 4.5" back space, so I know I need some clearance.
