I installed mine about 5 weeks ago and am very happy with the results. I did it myself at my buddy's Offroad Shop so if I needed help, they were right there. Follow the instructions and the little notes they pop in every now and then. It went in very smoothly - biggest problem I had was with the rear blocks. As soon as I got the block pin out of the hole in the mount, the entire rear axle shifted forward about 5 inches. Once the new block was ready to be inserted, I had to use a 4 foot 2X4 as a lever to get the axle back over the spring plate. Took some muscle and another set of hands but got it done. Buy it!



The web site in my sig shows lots more pictures - some before the lift and some after. Check it out...

I've got the readylift on mine as well, and I would say it made the ride just a bit stiffer than stock, but it's not much more harsh of a ride than stock. It seems to be real well made for $500. I'm about to go to a bigger lift I believe, and I am now trying to find ways to make it ride better than it does now. Again it's not bad, but from what I understand, the kits that replace your coils and shocks are MUCH better ride....

I installed Rancho RS9000XL's as I did the Readylift install, so it's tough to know the exact difference. Now that TripleE44 answered you, it gives me a better idea of what the difference was. As he states, it's not dramatic, just a little stiffer - nothing earth shattering. Thanks for the comments on my truck too!
