Anyone have any opinions on rough country lifts?

I went to my local truck shop to talk to them about a 6" or 8" lift and he first priced me a rough country. The price seemed very reasonable but I wasn't sure of the quality and ride of the lift. He said he had nothing but good feedback from this lift that he has installed. So if you guys would please let me know if you have any advice on this lift or if I should stay away from it? I didn't know if anyone had one installed on their 08's. Once again thanks again for all the input!!!

That's exactly what I figured...another great saying...If its too good to be true it prolly is!!! Well I think a Rize 6" radius arm should suit me just fine I would think. I have zero intentions of taking it off road I just want a nice looking lifted 250 ( like many on this site )! And I also want it to ride well! There are many different options on the rize kits anyone know what would be best for me since I don't plan on taking it offroad (I know it's a waste of truck but I am a freak when it comes to my vehicles getting nasty ). I just want a kit that will work out great for me but when I go to look at the lifts there are all kinds of different options to choose from and I don't know what's the best way to go. So that's where you PROS come into play!!! Help a brother out!!!! Thanks guys always a great help! Paul

If you want a really good ride...foot the bill and get coilivers and not coil springs with the Rize... and make sure to have a matching, properly valved resevoir shock in the rear....and do some Atlas or Deaver leaf springs in back

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

I made the mistake of doing coil springs on my super duty.... the dodge and the chevy both have coilovers and what a difference in the ride....
