I did the FabTech 6" basic kit........only complaint really is that you see the stock radius arms and drop brackets more than I would like. Other than that, it rides great, fit perfect, and was dirt cheap at $840!

If you got the money and want the better looks, get replacement radius arms......if you dont have the extra money, the basic kits are fine.

The good thing about Fabtech is that they will sell you an upgrade kit. If you buy the basic kit now you can upgrade to the radius arm kit or 4 link without having to buy a whole new kit. Check with Stealth Automotive. They carry Fabtech.

very true......I'm just too chicken right now to check prices on that! haha

Figure I'll get traction bars for the back axle first to kill some of the axle wrap, then I might get an upgrade kit for the front.

I've been very happy with my Skyjacker 4" kit. Opt for the Nitro shocks and make sure you have a Pitman arm. with a 6" kit I'd deffinately get new Radius arms. With my 4" kit, that's the max I'd use drop brackets on them IMO. But my skyjacker rides SO NICE. All grins. Except for at the fuel pump lately lol.
