my buddy has one of those lifts on his rig... i think its a 8-15" lift....the air bags give an amazing ride.... now the only thing with these lifts are once you go kendalman you cant go back... the lift requires you to cut off certain parts off the frame...only way i would guess is to have them welded back on... that and the lifts are very VERY expensive.... a small 6" lift with all the trimmings without installation your looking at around $8000.00 and its about another 1500ish to have it installed...... hope this helps

it's not chump change thats for sure. i called one of the dealers in florida and was quoted 15k for the 10-12" system. looks awesome though. i guess i will be doing something else! i like the ability to airing it up while driving then putting it down if i need to load things in the bed.

That is a crazy price! I was thinking about it as well... but really, it's not worth a minimum of 8000 in my mind. I'll ride "low" and enjoy that my 8000 is earning interest in my savings account!

I was lookin at the kelderman lift and yes it is 8,000-10,000 but to have it installed by someone else its going to cost anywhere from 3-4,000 dollars
so your lookin at about 14,000.To much for my taste.
A buddy of mine who owns a business (elec) company has a f-350 with a very modified kelderman lift.And has about 30,000 just in the lift But looks great a total of about 48" of lift with 54" tires to high for me. But he also uses it for advertisment for his compant. I will get so pics soon.
