looking for a 4.5" lift/leveling kit

i found a kit somewhere online a few months ago and didn't save the site. i've come across some extra cash and want to look back into it, but can't find it anywhere. it was a 4.5" kit that used the stock front and rear springs. kit included front and rear shackles and mounts, no lift blocks. price was somewhere around $400 or $500. if anyone knows of this kit, i would greatly appriciate the information. i have a 2000 PSD 4x4 superduty. thanks.

what additional parts are required? site says it has everything you need in the kit. i looked at the icon stuff and for a bit less than twice the price it seems to come with the same stuff that the sky kit comes with.

You need the cross bar IMO with Hanger kits over 2"

Also longer front sway bar links, rear Shocks, Rear block and U bolts or lift springs and U bolts.

Also a carrier bearing kit if you have a CV DS.

I would recomened a dual steering stablizer kit.

I bought my Icon through Cary, he recommended it over the other Leveling kits I was looking into...Cary is a great guy to deal with and really knows his stuff.

It depends on the clearance to the bed..and where you drive. My Friends that tow say 6" clearance to play it safe with a 5th wheel...I wouldn't think that would be a issue with a goose neck. The lift will work great..I would say to get a air bag kit.
