    Sky kit looks pretty good. I have the ORU kit, it's OK, but too much money IMO. Do a search for SAS, tons of info...

    ORU is the biggest waste of money ever. I second the Sky Mfg kit, it looks like pure beef, and for about a quarter of the cost of the ORU kit.

    actually being the one to own the Sky kit, i highly recomend it. i've only had one major beef with it, and AFAIK, my kit is the first customer kit out. granted, i do plan on adding a bit of extra support to the front crossmember, but its not totally necessary. i figure if you're gonna build it, build it right the first time. just be aware, that it does give 6" right out of the box. i bought 4" springs while i ordered the OffRoad Direct kit, assuming a 7" overall lift, and was going to run 35" tires on 3/4 tons. buying the Sky kit brought me up to 10", thus the 1 tons, and im planning on running a bigger tire. hell, im even thinking about a big block now. :rolleyes:

    With that much lift you should be able to clear 40s with a little trimming, inless there skinnies.
