Level Kit/Rough Country Kit

wanting to add a little lift to my 06 f250. was thinking about getting a 2.5" leveling kit with 4" blocks in the back and shock extenders. is this ok to do and can someone tell me where i can get a good one?

thats what im leaning towards but then i found this online, its a rough country 3" suspension kit. this is what it has...

Front: 3" lifted spacers, trac bar bracket, and radius arm drop brackets.

Rear: Lifted blocks and u-bolts.

Shocks: Kit includes (4) Hydro 8000 series shocks.

Anyone running this or know someone? and is this a good kit to have?

thanks for the help

From what I hear those kits ride a little rough (hence the name )

I installed a couple of the Icon kits with the 4" block & they rode very nice.

More expensive but you will be happier in the long run

Contrary to what a lot of people say on here, you'll be happy with a Rough Country kit. I install them everyday(along with other brands). There is nothing wrong with Rough Country. They also now have a lifetime warranty for the original owner of the parts.
For a couple bucks you can upgrade to gas charged shocks for a little smoother ride on the road, and for like 150 more you could replace the front springs instead of space them. Although spacing the springs retains the factory ride, so this kit won't give you a rougher ride than you have now I don't know why that was mentioned.

I was suggesting that the Icon kit comes w/ replacement coils, IMO that rides better than the stock spring w/ a spacer stacked on top.
