Tuff Country Lifts

Anyone here have a Tuff Country lift? I'm looking at a new truck with them, and am only familar with Rize and FabTech.. How do these lifts compare? Ride quality? Durability?

I'm primarily concerned about the ride quality on a new F-250 with a 6" tuff country and 37" toyos compared to factory.

Anyone have any thoughts?

The Tuff Country kits are decent kits. They aren't going to compare to the Rize and Fabtech kits, but they aren't bad quality. They are pretty much the kit for someone who is on a budget, but wants a good look and stance for their truck and the ability to fit larger tires comfortably. Are you sure its a 6" kit and not a 5" kit?

Yeah I have had a Fabtech before, and loved it. The Tuff Country just seemed like an odd choice for the truck its on. The particular truck is linked below. I was guesstimating the 6", looks like it could be 5"

If it's a Tuff Country lift then its their 5" kit. Not bad quality, just not a top of the line product. Like I said before, its pretty much a budget lift for someone wanting more than a leveling kit, but doesnt want to cough up the money for a 6" Fabtech or Rize kit.

Thanks for the feedback. I was contemplating getting something already done up, maybe a year old, versus just getting a brand new truck and doing it all right.

I think this answers my question. Thanks!

Excellent. Will do. Just sold my 2006 F-250 HD, and looks like I'm moving into a 2010 King Ranch..

Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated.

If your looking for a good quality low priced lift I look at a Rough Country lift. They have 6" and 8" 4 link lifts for good deals. They also have a good warrenty if something breaks.

2008 F-250 FX4

Procomp 6" lift, MX6 Shocks
38/15.50/20 DC FCII
20" Black XD Hoss
SCT Livewire W/RCD 485 & 585
4" Flo-Pro Down Pipe
5" Flo-Pro Turbo back Exhaust
S&B CAI

I read that Haiti is without a Government. To help out, I am donating an Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Coakley, and two Clintons.

They may keep them. I'd give them a Constitution, but mine's missing!
