    Pro Comp 6\" lift

    This looks like a good deal. It comes with the kit, extended brake lines and a steering arm.

    Pro Comp 6" Lift kit
    How does this compare to other lift kits?

    How hard would it be to install this for someone that doesn't know much about trucks? What kind of problems will I run into?

    I have a basic socket set and a few other tools. I would need to buy a jack stand but those aren't very expensive.

    Any insight is greatly appreciated!

    In my opinion that is to much money for a lift.

    Is this a 4" lift or 6" lift?

    Swanson52,

    How easy is it to install this 6" kit? Will I need anything else besides what comes in the kit? If not much else is needed and your a re-seller do you have a contact number or website that this can be purchased from?

    My experiance with procomp lifts is they ride like a brick. The ride sucks!!!

    I've got a rough country lift and it rides nice and flexes pretty good. I paid about 300 for a 4" lift with rear blocks and later got rear springs

    Re: Pro Comp 6\" lift

    Some must haves i have found recently are a good rachet or bar of considerable length. At least a propane tourch to heat up some bolts. I still had to take mine in to someone with a cutting tourch to get some rear leaf bolts cut off, as they were so stuck. (i broke a few sockets and decent ratchet /forums/images/icons/mad.gif ) I would also suggest the rough country route.
