    I am lookin to buy a 6 inch lift kit and was looking for some advice. I've heard good things about the BDS and Tough Country lifts but I want to know What y'all think. Cheaper is better, but i don't want to sacrifice quality in order to save a few bucks. Thanks, I really appreciate it.

    I run a 6" Superlift and love it. Not sure about tuff country though. I've heard about uneven spring wear or whatever it's refered as.

    My Skyjacker 4" is all I've had, and I'm really happy with them. But have heard "Tuff" country is the $hit and supposedly so is BDS. Good luck!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I have tuff country 2" add a leafs, I don't know if they make their lifts about the same but they are awesome so far. I actaully got about 3 inches out of them. But they are only a week old so they haven't settle or broken in yet. They ride really nice though,better than before.
