i think it depends on what price range your looking for... their are a lot of manufacturers but depending on your budget it will dictate which ones you can afford

I don't know anyone who has every purchased a Camburg. ProComp gives decent bang for the buck.

Go Camburg I have there entire system on my 97 ranger and have never broke anything 5 yrs of HARDABUSE. Now I know there not the same but there built by the same people so the superduty lift must be good…

the good bad and ugly

the good, they look killer. the bad, once you lift then more money for rims and tires, ride is sacrificed big time. the ugly, death wobble. I went from a 6" lift and 35 witrh 20" rims to an 8" with 37" tires and 22" rims, got death wobble real bad on three different occasions with both set ups, nearly crashed the truck the last time. My truck is now back to being completely stock. I would keep it that way if I were you.
