to lift or not to lift?

Have a 2003 7.3L Stroke, crew cab, long box. Was thinking about putting a 6 inch pro comp suspension lift with 37 x 12.5 x 17, 17 inch american racing rims(with less than a 1000 miles), dual front shocks on my truck. Can get the lift for $2400. Is that a good deal? Also want your guys opoins on it. Should i do it or not? What are some of the pros and cons of a lift? Thanks

2400 is with everthing, but brake lines and lug nuts. which is stupid. guy was just to lazy to switch the lines out. the lift is used. came off a truck with 51000 miles. sounds like the lift wasnt on the truck very long.

Donahoe uses deaver leaf springs and in my opinion those are the best leaf springs out there. All of the trucks in my fleet that are lifted and/or got new leafs all have deaver leafs and couldn't be happier with them.

Oh well if your getting a used lift that seems like the best way to go. Can't beat $2400 for all of that. I thought you were getting a new lift.
