4 inch rcd or 4.5 rough country with bilsteins

So I can't for the life of me decide what lift to get. I have an 08 f250. I know RCD makes a great kit, and I love bilstein shocks. But the rough country kit is less than half the price, and I can add the same bilstein shocks later, for another 330ish. Now my question is, for a total of about 400 more after buying shocks is the RCD kit actually worth it? Is it really 400 dollars better? Looking at the kits they look very similar besides the shock. Plus the RC sits half an inch higher. Any input is appreciated, thanks!

I tried, it won't give me moderator approval for some reason, but they are both super easy to find. You can just Google them

Westcoast offroad has a pretty good detailed description of the kit. Unfortunately the RCD website is down right now

Is there anything I'm missing that the BDS kit comes with that the RCD doesn't? It looks pretty similar to me besides the RCD comes with what I know are great shocks
