Fabtech or BDS Basic 6"?

I'm going to be getting a 6" lift soon to clear some 37 open countrys. I was wondering which basic kit would be better, the BDS or the Fabtech. I'm going to upgrade the shocks to some Bilstein 5100's instead of the ones that come with the kit.

I like the BDS better as their products are very well built and their no questions asked lifetime warranty is great should you ever need it.
BDS 6 Inch Radius Arm Suspension System - 2005-2007 F250/350 SRW 4wd - 2005-2007 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

However, depending on your wheel choice you may want to go with a 8" to fully clear those 37" Toyos.

Well, after what you've said I like the BDS, and I may be trying the nitto trail grapplers instead of the open country's. I will keep that in mind, though, if I'm wanting to go with the toyo's.

I'm also going to upgrade the shocks to thte Bilstein 5100's to try and get a smoother ride out of my truck, will that make a pretty big difference or no?

The Bilstein 5100s will definitely ride better than the BDS 5500s that are standard with that suspension.
