Rough Country vs. Skyjacker vs. Tuff country

Hey Y'all i'm lookin for a new lift kit for my '97 f250 and was wondering what company has the best quality? My buddies mostly have RC but I've heard good & bad things about them. Looking for a 4' or 6' lift so any pictures or advice would be appreciated thanks!

Both Rough County and Tough country are the Bottom of the Barrel.

Skyjacker, Superlift, Rancho, BDS are all better

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

I have a superlift kit on mine with monroe reflex shocks. Has a nice ride and is very capable. Actually I should say my front springs are superlift because when I installed the front D60 I had to build 7" blocks for the rear because the lift is just over 5" taller than stock F250 height with the springs and D60 and I wanted to retain my factory rear overloads.

97 F250 Xlt, built E4od, D60 swap, Baby swamps, tunes by Dp
1.0 housing w/ wwII, 203* t-stat, diy 6637, 4" exhaust
Diy intercooled, 6.0 fan, Diy 140v Idm, Isspro Ev gauges
On board air, E-fuel, 6" lift on 35's
322000 miles
