Best Lift?

I want to run 37's on my truck but don't know much about the best lift out there for the 08. I want the smoothest lift out there but dont want a ryde lift. I just personally don't like the looks of them. I will probably do a 4-link but just don't know what would be better for me 6 or 8 inch. Any advice would be great!!!

how much are you willing to spend lol.... 4 link kits are not cheap.... you can fit 37's on a 6" lift so i would go that route if you tow anything....

Fabtech or Rize 4 link kits are very good... with Rize being more expensive... if you tow i would only go 6".. you can clear 37's with 6"

A Fabtech with the 4.0 Coilover kit would be nice on there

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

i think Fabtech is more than enough... Rize is supposed to be a superior quality but is also way more expensive....

go with the fabtech, you won't be dissapointed. Also, go 6'' you can easily clear 37's and will be way more work/tow friendly than an 8''

The stuff hanging off is the traction bars and the four link. Fabtech is fine I have used them on about 4 2008s. I am getting RIZE for myself. I am told all the time I waist money on stuff.
