Could you recommend any brand names and model numbers for good lift kits?
Higher center of gravity = more likely to tip over.
Taller truck= less aerodynamic = less mpg
The higher quality your lift components are, the more likely you truck will ride and drive closer to stock. If you plan on spending under $2k on a lift, plan on having a truck that drives like chit. Spend $4-6k on a quality lift and you will be driving a Cadillac truck.
