Which lift to buy?

Alright guys, I am going to go ahead and lift her up. I only want to do a 4.5" lift. What does everyone recommend for a lift that will actually fit a drw? I am not sure there are very many options out there right now. ICON seems to get great reviews but it's $2k just for the stage 1. Is that really worth it? Is there another kit I should get instead?

Quality counts...best kit will have true 4 link arms as the stocks arms bind..so, Pure Performance has 2 kits with 4 link arms std or Icon and add arms if wanted. We are a dealer for both if I can get you more info pricing please PM me.

Will the Pure Performance work on a DRW? I checked there website out and it doesn't specify? Do you think that the 4 link will improve my ride quality noticeably? I don't do any off-roading unless you consider driving though my pasture every once in a while.

Yes..will work fine, I'd get the 4.5" kit with the Deaver rear mini spring packs..4 link arms make a big difference on and esp off road..

That didn't take to long to get back into a lifted truck I know my icon rides better over my friends procomp Stg2 6" on his 08 250. And u had a procomp on your last one. I would say icon or pure, the cost is worth the ride imo.

I'm seeing more trucks with 22.5's and I have to be different. Haha. And really my truck rides like a tank and it was like that before the wheels so I'm hoping a good kit improves that. I think I'm going to go with the Icon stage 1 but upgrade to the 4 link. Which one do you have? Does it ride better than stock?

It rides better then stock, the duel rate coils have alot to do with it i think. I got what is now the stg 1. I would look at OUO adj link arms to if you are looking at a 4 link. I know i am looking at them when i do the tei spacer. I know my mom and girlfriend say my truck rides great for being a lifted truck, and don't mind being it if that helps any.
