So im looking into lifts for my 07 Crewcab f250. Have the 20 inch wheels. Will be needing tires this fall probably so seems like a good time to upgrade. Looked at the rough country 6", skyjacker, etc.

What do yall run? Ive only really had experiece with skyjackers stuff on jeeps.

Alot guys around here are running Icon, and quite a few in my area are using Pure Performance lifts. When I get the chance I'll be running a Pure Performance 4" kit and 35's.

6" rough country 4 link on 37 ss-m16





And this is after the added 2"


Granted these have a little flex in it so it looks way bigger.

Well overall i am very satisfied with this kit. for the price it is great. It is not the top shelf kit but i dont know what it doesnt do compared to a better kit. Friends say it rides better than stock but i dont know.

FABTECH! They make awesome products. The way I describe their products is they are strong and built for abuse! Like it was a few guys building a rig in their garage and thinking of ways to make it strong and better then the rest! I have a 8in Skyjacker suspension and also did one on a 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee years back. Always thought good of Skyjacker cause I BEAT that Jeep hard and it stayed together but my opinion of Skyjacker has diminished. My truck was around the same time. Broke the front track bar bracket twice factory weld broke and when I called them on it they were not helpfully at all said they need receipts and this and that blah blah blah...Called Fabtech for other suspension parts I have awesome to talk to and I asked them if I have to register them if they break and they said don't worry about it if it breaks we will make it right...That's all I needed to hear. Lifted my buddies 2001 Dodge dually 2 years ago with a skyjacker kit. Total garbage payload went to nothing. Needless to say it no longer has that suspension on it any longer. (Granted its a Dodge) So on a regular guys budget I would get a Fabtech if I could do it over, however if I had more money then I knew what to do with I would love to put a four link system on.
