It depends on how big you want to go as to which kit to go with... OUO, RIZE, and Fabtech all make kick a$$ coil-over lifts... with the OUO and RIZE you can do King Coil-Overs which are absolutely Top Notch.... and fabtech has the 4.0 Dirt Logics which are sweet..... my advice is no matter what to do the 4 link and get the traction bars...

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

Well I was thinking about an 8" lift, I was thinking either Rize with King Coil over and OUO traction bars, or are the Rize traction bars better. Or the Fabtech 8" Coil Over lift. The main thing is I want to make sure I am not going to lose my overload springs in the rear cause I still want to beable to tow.

Fabtech will always be able to tow... they design it like that.... I persoablly am a huge fan of the RIZE kit with the RIZE tractions bars.... its such a sweet look on these trucks.... that with some KING coilovers and shocks would look hella cool... and out perform most all lifts out there.... but at the same time be very costly.... Talk to Overkill or DC Special and they will point you in the best direction and get the you best price

If you want to tow...go with the OUO traction blocks in the back....this is how my truck is done...I tow DAILY, I own a construction company...mostly roofing and tow 7-10K loads daily. I have the traction blocks with no add a leafs and the full factory leaf pack including the overloads...my truck ridesjust like stock, and had the same payload as stock. Not to mention I get ZERO axle hop...I can cruise with the kids, tow anything, take it to the track, and pull the sled these OUO deals are AWESOME, probably one of the best products I have ever bought to be honest.

Go with this. Ford Super Duty lift kit - coilovers - Camburg - Donahoe - Donahoe Racing I'm pretty sure they are making kits for the 08's but don't have any pics up yet.

Why do blocks at all? You can get a progressive rate full leaf in the rear and do some good traction bars with that.... You are paying a nice chunk of change for the lift, why not go all out and get some Atlas or Deaver springs and fore go all blocks
