Some kits range from $1500-$6000. Do you want it for looks or do you off-road. Rize and Icon are some of the more top shelf lifts.

2005 F350 CC SB ,Turbo-back Silverline 304 ss , RCD EGR delete , Elite VGT-SS turbo , SCT tunes by DJ's , cat delete , Autometer triple gauges , 20" MKW M19 , Toyo 38 x 15.50 x 20 , Icon 4-link 10in. lift , Dual Sway-a-way coilovers and shocks , Pioneer Avic F90BT, OUO Driveline Drop, CCV reroute , FS-2500 oil bypass, Mag-Hytec diff covers , Amp steps


Wanting a Cummins swap.

off road is what i was looking for but something that i can just go down the road with to because it will be my play on the weekends and drive to work truck to. I'm in the military so it wont be that big of a deal having it sitting in the parking lot. Thanks for the tip tho ill be sure to look into them both

I'm running a Rize 8" 4-link with their traction bars and King coil over shocks. I've had this set up on for 60k miles and am very, very happy with it.

Without going into too much detail, I'd recommend going with a 4-link (also called a quad link) instead of a radius arm lift. The 4-link helps keep the geometry in line a little better and offers greater wheel travel and better ride quality.
