Big difference in price. Member Scuffy on this forum makes a really nice shackel lift. I saw a set and they are very high quality. I normally don't like shakel lifts, but for a leveling kit they are suppose to be okay. Many use this type of leveling kit with no problems. I am going to have Scott give me a hand putting mine on because I am on a gravel driveway, but install is easy if you can get the front end off the ground. PM Scott for more info.

you can do an add a leaf.. either a short or full length leaf... the short ones are 3 leafs stacked which is what your talking about..... or you can do shackle lifts from anywhere from 2" to 3.5" but by the time you go 3.5'" you might as well just put a full 4" susp system

I'm looking to lift my truck, but can I still tow my 5ver with a lift kit?

depends on how high you go.... if you go too high youll have to flip the axles on the 5th wheel... my buddy has an 8" lifted 350 dually with a 40+ft 5th wheel toy hauler and it does pretty good.... but 4" lift is as high as you can go before modding the trailer
