If the kit in this link is the same one you are looking at, then it is half the cost.

used rough country lift on my jeep about 5 years ago. it lasted 1 mild 4 wheelin trip. by the end of the day my springs were sagging and i was sitting with about 1 inch of lift. stay away from junk and buy yourself a quality kit from another mfg.

I have that kit, and yes you have a 2005 so not the same as the second post. Kit is good. You have a f350. so you will nee f250 blocks to make it a 6" kit. Your f350 blocks are to big for the u bolts they give you. I have f250 blocks for sale right now. I have since changed the kit to an 8" kit and will be going up further from there but overall a good kit. Recently had a leaf spring crack and they are sending out a new one for free under warranty. Here is some pictures of the install


stock 350 leaf

6" leaf

You have to set them up. They give you a measurement and you set the lock nut to that length

Does the truck ride better than before? Having a 4-link system.

Like stated above, they are junk! BDS, Procomp or another high quality lift company would be much better. I had a 6'' Rough Country on my 2004 and I had broken leaf springs, sagged after a year and over all just low quality stuff with ****ty steel. Went and had a 6'' BDS put in and 2 years later no sagging or broken leafs.
