It'll get the job done, but thats about it. lol

Don't get me wrong 'm not bashing Rough Country at all but their are much better ways to lift your truck. This lift your looking at is going to ride like a rock. My friend has an RC 3" lift on his Ram 1500 and even with IFS it rides stiffer than my truck does! As far as lift kits go you really do get what you pay for. If your willing to fork over a little more money you can build a pretty nice system for under $1k.

Give these guys a call..

Top Gun Customz

Tell them you want some 2.5" Progressive Rate Coils, Bilstein 5100 Shocks, and some blocks for the back. They'll hook you up and you'll be much happier than you would be with the RC kit. It is top quality and will ride smoother and last longer too!

If you have any questions just ask! Oh, and you get a 10% discount if you tell them your an .org member!

2.5" Progressive Rate Coil Springs

I couldn't seem to find the correct rear blocks on their site, just give them a call and ask and they'll point you in the right direction.

I understand that there are better ways to do it, everybody says that if you go 3in on the front then you need a track bar bracket or a new track bar... The kit includes the bracket... And it's using a spacer instead of springs... People that do a 2 in level spacer say the ride quality is the same... The only issue I really feel with this kit to make it ride rough would be the shocks... And i haven't be able to find any reviews for a super duty with those shocks so I don't know about them...
