Suspension Lift Opinions

Just went to 35 inch toyos and they're rubbing on the inner fender well Ive decided to go with a 4in. lift. I was wondering what you guys think is the best company to go with. Obviously ICON is on top but that also comes with a hefty price tag. Looking for opinions on:
-Rough country
-skyjacker
-procomp
-tuff country
And any other companies I'm missing. Thanks guys.

Yes but it rides as smooth as my mercedes. Going over railroad tracks feel like your floating on water balloons and whisper quiet too to boot. I actually have kelderman up front and some $8k set up (without labor) out back with no more leaf springs.

I would love to know what was $8K for just the rear end that did not include labor.

Most of us love pictures......

Kelderman would be awesome but not all of us hit the lottery yet ....

I had a 6"rough country on an 01 350 and it rode better than the stock setup , it also rides better than my 4" pro comp on my 02 IMO.

Kelderman is way out of my price range maybe some day. Is ICON really worth the extra money to you guys?

What do you do with your truck? How often do you tow? Do you have overloads?

The truck is my DD, occasional towing but i plan on doing more towing once i get out of Key West. Truck is equipped with overload springs. Rides super rough right now, reminds me of my dads old OBS 350.
