    I have a 6" skyjacker lift all springs no blocks running on 35" pro comp M/T. The ride is pretty stiff but I still love it and as for tires these have done me pretty good for the most part. I'll probably get BFG's M/T next time though

    If you want stiff springs, springs all around, and on a budget, my suggestion would be Rough Country. They are just want they advertise, rough. I know you can get their whole package deal for alot cheaper than any other company i know of

    Rough country is the cheap stiff spring source.

    $600 for a 6" is pretty close for what they advertise if i remember right, May want to save a lil' more pennies and try and talk the salesman into free shipping and your set, pick up any a 4wheel magizine and they have a their own marketing page in there somewhere.

    If you want a stiff ride why on earth do you want an all leaf lift?

    You can get a Tuff Country 6" front lift kit for like $245 i think it is, then you just need some 6" blocks for the rear and extended brake lines...Which'll be less than 200 for blocks and brake lines...So there you go.

    $245 for front springs and a rear block is prolly just the price for just that. He's gonna need a steering arm, and shocks too. Not trying to bash, and i could be wrong, the guy wants a cheap 6" all springs. That's respectable for a guy in school that wants a good lookin' ride to have fun in, that isn't rollin' around in cash. My opinion though, you can wipe with it, i won't mind.:D

    Why do want a stiff ride?? With a 6" lift your not gonna get that much axle wrap. I knew a guy from TX that had bought an 80 3/4 ton dirt cheap, took the rear springs from another truck, took the main leave out and put in the front of the 80 using the 80s main leave. Think he added a couple springs and a block out back. Cleared 35s and rode better than my truck with the "proper" 6" lift did.

    Look for a set of Cepek springs. Ebay is a good place to start. They are the stiff. They are also cheap, so it fits your needs.

    I was looking on Summit last night at 6" front springs for my 86 M1028 (K30). It seemed that Superlift and Explorer Pro Comp were the cheapest. I do not know is one is alot better than the other.

    Rough Country is a good way to go. As for tires in the mud I have never had a problem with BFG's or even Wrangler tires, But I do love them Ground HAWGS in the MUD they are awesome! Pretty expensive though


    Here are some pic's one 4" inch Rough Country one 6" RC The other two are BDS No Blocks on any of them

    i got my 6" lift from rough country. they are pretty cheap but they are a good kit. my kit was like $900 but i had all the doo dads. 56" rear springs dual front nitro shocks, steering arm, sway bar drop kit, front and rear brake lines, and all the ubolts and all that crap. go to rough country.com and check it out. um but a really cheap kit with rear springs is from ntwonline.com or national tire and wheel. they usually are the odd colored pages in most 4x4 mags like four wheeler or petersons 4wheel. they are superlift springs i think. and its like $589 with rear springs. i was going to get them but they didnt come with all the crap that my lift came with. better to buy the lift with everything on it then to have to search for hours (dial-up) for the best price and where to buy the parts and what all i need. but check out the sites. they might have what you need for cheap. also like superlift rough country has a scratch and dent store on their site. but its mostly shocks and full kits with wheels and tires. if you find one you can get a 6" kit on their with wheels and tires for like 1800. kinda expensive but i comes with the wheels and tires. and the tires are mostly mickey thompson mtz's which are mud tires.

    you could also just by a 4" lift and a 2" or 3" body lift. the kit with rear blocks on the rough country site is $309. and a 2'' body lift is like $88. so you will be only spending bout 400 for everything. just another way. with that you could get away with the stock brake lines even. maybe save you some money for some wide 36's or even 37's. just me but they look better than 35's. :wink1:
