Leveling kit - Rough Country?

Hey yall im lookin to put a leveling kit into my '99 F250. Mainly looking at the Rough Country leveling kit, looks nice and isn't that expensive. Has anyone had any experience with this kit or has a better option? I plan on putting 35x12.5x17 on it after, they'll be either Toyo MT's or Nitto Trail grapplers. Any advice is appreciated thanks!

It'll ride rough just as the name suggests. You're better off doing a hanger/shackle lift to level out the front and maintaining your stock leaf ride quality. Check out Welcome to Precision Metal Fabrication - USA Built suspension systems

No B/S to that statement. I had one of their lifts on my truck and I gave the springs away.

It will definitely ride like a truck. There are a ton of those kits out there and it will work fine, just will ride a stiffer than more expensive kits.
