    What all do you want in the kits... different kits cost less or more depending on all you need and want to do....

    A used kit is one thing, but if you buy an el Cheapo kit, you will not be happy with the ride or the flex, and they may not last long. Good kits use good steel, so you will be money ahead to buy a quality lift.

    I highly recommend the Skyjacker leafs.

    Also, you're better off to get a quality kit with rear blocks than to buy a cheapy system with rear springs. Think about it, if their springs are made out of Mexican steel and ride like crap, do you really want TWO MORE of them on your rig?

    That's my story...

    yup RD said it... or in other words "You get what you pay for" Usually. I have a BDS... also like the Superlift superrides and Skyjacker softrides. Also try and get rear springs too... blocks suck! I have them in now and hate them (even as a temporary till I get my rear springs and swap the axle...again)

    Settle for a 4" lift and you could get a shackle flip. You keep your rear springs, save some dough, and flex like an SOB. Just a thought. ;)
