Choices, choices

Here is my new dilemma, a local PSD owner wants to even swap a 6" Superlift for a stock suspension. Basically, I pay to take off his suspension and pay to have mine put on his rig + swap wheels and tires (I have stock).
For the lifted guys - would you do it again? Is the ride alot worse? Can you still tow with the 6" and a Ranch Hand bumper?
It's up to you guys to talk me out of it as my idiot side wants to do it

I don't like lifted trucks - so I'd say stay with stock.. lol but I don't think thats the type of opinion you were askin

but, from a pure economical standpoint - if you are getting something that is worth anything - try it and if you don't like it you can sell it and return back to the way you were...

My 03 is lifted and my 99 is stock. I like havin it both ways, one day I can be incognegro and the other day I can stand out in a crowd. If I had to get rid of one I would probably get rid of the stock height. The ride sucks on the lifted truck but nobody ever said pimpin was easy. So you are gonna have to pay for both lifts to get uninstalled and then installed. How much does that come up to?? If it was me I would see if he would pay for half the install and reinstall. Of course he is throwing in the rims and tires so it might be worth it. I would have to say let the idiot side win on this one.

i agree... but find out how much its gonna cost to do the swap... usually it costs around here about 1k to install a sups lift .... now your talking about 2 sups for you and the other truck so thats 2k and how much are they gonna charge to to take it off.... lol just figure that out first cause you can get a 6" lift for 1k

He said he contacted 4 wheel parts and it would be $1200. I figured asking a couple of buddies of a buddy who have done this before and see what the charge is. The way I was looking at it I would resale his wheels and tires and maybe not be out 2 much.

Thanks for the help so far.
