Looking to bay new truck it has a 4" lift, can I remove it?

Ok found a really nice 08 lariat. However it has a 4" rough country lift on it and I pull a 35' 5th wheel travel trailer. If this truck sits to high for the 5th wheel is their options on ways to lower the truck down a bit.

I see that Rough Country sells a 3" kit. maybe that would work?

Any Ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks Guys
Tony

I just put on a Rough Country lift and have all the factory parts if you want to put it back to stock. Coilovers, shocks and blocks.

raise your 5th wheel, you can have the leaf springs put on top of the axles in stead of underneath, or block them. or different size tires on your truck.

Excellent. What do you want for them. judging from your name are you from Michigan? I'm from Ohio

Ben. I may do that we will see how the new truck measures up to the 5th wheel.

Thanks guys

Actually on the other side - Memphis.

To be honest I really dont know what to ask for them. The truck only has 35000 miles on it, so the stuff really hasnt even broken it yet, haha

If anyone has any good estimates Ill go with that.

That is a good looking truck too.
