I have a 8" fab tech lift on mine with skyjacker shocks and steering stabilizers. Rough country track bar and fabtech pitman arm.....

Rides pretty rough not horrible. I'll be swapping it out for a 6" bds with either fox racing or bilstein shocks. In the near future also gonna swap the trac bar for a ready lift one here in the next couple weeks... It looks amazing just kinda wanders and isn't quite as smooth as I like but I can still drive on roads with a open cup without makin too much of a mess


Wheels and tires make a difference also. My truck rides way better with my xd diesels with the 37x12.5x20 trail grappler m/t. Compared to the 39x16x16.5 Tsl super swampers(for sale btw. ) on American racing Baja wheels
My .02 cents

I would suggest BDS as they offer a lifetime warranty, and I would upgrade to a set of Fox shocks.

Well if you want something thats gonna ride really good and last you awhile, i would go with the skyjacker coilover conversion. I installed my a few years ago and i couldnt be happier with the ride quality and how well it performs. And if you wanna go one step further, get a set of 05 and up axles and go that route.

their all the same quality in my opinion. their all around the same price for the same set-up. the only thing with these companies are the quality in the shocks. If i were you I'd go ahead and just buy some bilsteins when you buy the lift
