4 inch lift

looking for a 4 inch lift on my regular cab 1997 ford f250 7.3L 4x4. Looking for a good suspension lift it. Not trying to break the bank. I really don't do any rough offroading. I want something I know if going to work. Some people have mentioned rough country and skyjacker and trailmaster. Anyone have favorites or opinions?

I've had ruff country for a few weeks now. Love it. Unfortunately...with all lifts...you get what you pay for. Go for something middle of the road or higher... one thing to remember is make sure you get the drop pitman arm for steering. Also you will need a new camber adjustment kit for a realignment as the lift maxes out the stock camber. Big O charged me 129 for mine including labor.
