lift kit

well after ALOT of debate I think I finally decided to do a lift kit on my truck in february. is this kit the best I can get for around $1500? I have heard great things about icon and I am stuck between either

1999 - 2004 Ford Super Duty F250 / F350 6" Suspension System - ICON Vehicle Dynamics

or

Pro Comp Suspension Part K4016BFR - 6.5 inch Lift Kit with Fox Reservoir Shocks

I like the pro comp lift because it has the fox remote reservoir shock but do the procomp lift last or do they start to sag soon? Also on the Icon kit I will have to buy shocks extra so it will end up costing more by the time I buy good shocks

youy will be happier oin the long run, spending a little more for the icon with a good shock. the procomp will sag after a while. DONT GO CHEAP HERE, this is where it really counts.

Get what you can afford...ICON is a great choice but they have changed shock design since I got my shocks.

I got some OneUpOffroad 6" rear traction blocks that allow you to bolt up their traction bars. Or mod up a set of your own...

You will not be disappointed with the icon kit. Had it on my 03 with bilsteins, great ride for a lifted leaf spring truck and still no sagging 6 years later.
