    Guys I have just purchased a 6" Superlift lift Kit. Does anyone have one and how does it stack up to Say Skyjacker or Trailmaster among others? Getting a pretty good deal.....I hope /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    I've never heard anyone complain about a Superlift system. I am running Skyjacker/ORD/homemade. If it's a good deal, get it.

    I have had two SUperlift kits and have abunch of friends that have them. All of ours work great with no complaints!

    I know that the Skyjacker soft ride rear springs are stiff!

    I've got the 6" Super lift too. I'd suggest getting the longer front shackles. But I'm happy with it. They have a spring rate of like 600 or so compared to, I think, Tuff Countrys 350. Stiffer but if you have a winch or a big block then you'll like it even more cuz your springs won't wear out. They flex pretty good.

    Busan DRMO sold a bunch of trucks to a salvage shop in Busan. A couple of them are from the mid 70's! Hard to believe the military had these laying around all these years but then again, I'm not surprised! Some have the 454's. He's got a few left. He also has about 20 K5's for sale. All are M1009. 3/4 ton. And he has a 6.5 diesel for sale. I gave you his phone number a few years ago. He has the most military goods on his lot in Korea outside of the military!

    I just installed one on an 85 Blazer and am very satisfied with the way it went. Seems like the owner is happy with it. Even the steering arm swap went smooth.
