If you were to lift

Okay, obviously there are all kinds of lift companies out there. I think on this forum we have established that the higher end kits are better. You get what you pay for sorta thing.....

So heres my question. If you had a budget of 1500ish bucks. Radius , 3 or 4 link, its up to you. What sort of setup would you put together with that. Suspension lift, not leveling kits though. Thats a complete system also, shocks front and rear lift.
What suspension company would you go with?

It depends on what height you want. I decided I wanted a 4" kit on 35's so I bought RC's 4.5" kit and am using 325/65/18. I ended up having about 740 in the lift and about 2000 in the wheels and tires.

Installed? haha.....its a solid axle! Piece of cake.
Suspension Parts or kit only.....I didn't say wheels and tires......
Obviously 15k budget would be awesome, I'm just curious what the opinions would be if YOU had a budget. At least close to 1500 but for sure less then 2k. When money isn't an issue it's an easy deal.
Got get creative when u have limits. Also didn't specify on height either just that it needed to be suspension and not leveled.
It's not for me, I have a 4.5" icon.......just curious

How much lift? The higher you go the more expensive it gets. What's your trucks details?

Ha, big red......okay for you I drive a 2009 CCSB f250.
Lift height dont matter! Read the post a little slower. What would U do with 1500-2000 on your truck ........JUST a complete suspension.

Ok here you go: get a lift with radius arms ( no drop brackets ) and a good set of coils. Icon is a good choice. You can buy parts seperate on eBay or a kit online.

Just no Rough Country. I had one and it was ROUGH would have givin it to you for free and save your buddy the trouble.

Obviously a 6" lift will require drop brackets and bigger blocks.
I'm a fan of adjustable shocks too. Set them to how you like it to ride.

$2000.00 will put a quality lift together I did it for less.
