Which lift to get?

Looking for a good 6" lift with new coils, new radius arms (not drop brackets), either blocks or add a leaf in the back, all the relocation brackets, and new shocks all around. And dual steering stabilizers? ProComp, Skyjacker, Superlift?? Don't want to go much over $2000 if I can't help it.

I seem to recall the Fabtech 6in basic lift being under $2k.

Sent from my EVO using AutoGuide app.

What is pretty much the same? There are significant differences in a Pure and an Icon.

Also to the OP, you really don't want to raise your truck 8" and not lower the radius arm brackets. Doing so would result to way too much geometry change throughout the range of travel of the axle. Not a good thing. For $2k you should be able to get into a 4 link which is hands down better than a radius arm setup.
