Rough Country 6 inch 4 link lift?

Has anybody had first hand experience with this lift on a 2008-2010 f250/f350? I have read that it is pretty impressive, but then all of their other products ride like a brick. Opinions would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I have the 4 1/2" kit and so far like it a lot. The ride is better than stock
and the kit comes with new springs, shocks, block, stainless braided brake line extensions, and some other good quality stuff.

The hardware is all top notch.

Make sure to get the dual stablizer that comes with a pretty cool looking bracket.

It sits up there pretty good with 35's

If I had the money though, I would go with the Carli 2.5 Pintop Lift. That lift is sick.

Hope this helps!

I've never rode in a solid front axle truck that had a RC lift, but have read reviews from others on here saying that it rides pretty rough. At the very least I'd runn a BDS lift. There springs are not as smooth as the ICON, but are much better than RC, Fabtech, Procomp, Zone and any other lift on that level.

I decided to go with the superlift radius arm drop with bilsteins and I couldn't be more happy. The ride is really good, I love it.

Wow, I dont have that problem. I bought the upgraded shocks with the kit and was impressed with the hardware. Its all top notch stuff and to me does not look any differrent than some of the high dollar kits out there.

Yesterday I was riding around town and was thinking how smooth the ride was. I went over some railroad tracks at about 35 mph and was impressed to say the least.

For the money. I would go to another RC lift with no hesitations.

If money is not an issue then the Carli PinTop 2.5 lift is the SHI*
I have read a lot of good things about the new Carli lifts.

Zone is BDS. They share the same coils. Zone is merely a defeatured BDS system. Zone is just BDS's "cheap" brand...
