Lifting my f250

I'm about to start ordering everything I need for the lift and was wondering what are some pretty good brands?
I was thinking about going with pro comp or rancho.
And I'm on a slight budget here.

What is your budget and how big lift, size of tires, etc? There are a LOT of things to consider....

I'm looking for a 4 inch lift, 18" rims and 35" tires. I also want dual steering stabalyzers and ladder bars.
Trying to stay under 4 grand when its all said and done.

How much are you willing to sacrafice your ride? I installed a 4.5" ICON Stage 1 with 35's and 20's on a buddies 11 250 and it rides awsome. Comparing how my truck and his rides compared to other lifted trucks I would save the coin for an Icon lift or at least a BDS with nothing less than the Bilstein shocks. I don't find it to pull with only 35's. You can probably purchase the stabilizer later.

Radius Arm bracket lift: Icon = $1900 with Bilstein 5100's. BDS = $1500 with BDS 9500 shocks.

Probably looking at the bds. But then I have to remember about the other 2 grand for rims and tires.
And I have decided that 35's is all I need/want.
