    More Q\'s from the new guy: Tuff Country?

    I am considering a Tuff Country suspention lift for my truck (6")... I would like to hear anything you guys have to say on the subject. How is the ride, on and off road? How is the articulation? Is there much sag?

    Aluminum running boards, rock sliders, same thing.

    A lot of people here have them and have good things to say about them. They have good flex.

    I have the 4" springs up front and they are actually taller than 4". The only problem I have had is that they are already rusting. It is just surface rust but the coating didn't last very long.

    I would go with the Rancho 9000 shocks. I got the Procom 3000 shocks. I;m not very impressed with them.

    If you are serious about flex. Get the 2"springs for the rear and buy a shackle flip kit for the rear. Look on the main page under projects to see the shackle flip. You'll get more flex and probably a better ride with that set up.
