got a kit for my F150 last year from desert rat. desertrat.com i think and 4wheelparts has been pretty cool about getting my intake and chip. 4wheelparts.com (i think they might be a little over priced) I see alot of trucks with liftedtrucks.com stickers so maybe try them? Thats where i would look first.

I have a superlift 4" lift, every thing works great. My only mistake was getting the soft ride rear springs, they are not 1 ton springs. I added air bags to the rear to help with loads. The front leaves are very stout. The front would only drop a 1/2in whe the plow was up. Also lifted the front almost 5 1/2" over stock. I reversed the rear shackle mts to bring the rear up to match. I have 35"tires with plenty of room, 37s next time. See the pics in my garage, before the rear shackle flip.
