    Tuff Country makes pretty good stuff. You get decent ride quality will a pretty flexy spring.

    Do it right like mentioned. What is your budget for the lift. You'll need to spend quite a bit to do it right.

    It also depends on what you driving habits will be. Mostly on road, on/off road, or mostly off road. Each will use a different set up for a 6" lift. Blocks or Springs or Shackle Flip with new springs, etc.

    Don't forget you'll need new brake lines, steering arm, shocks, tires and maybe new draglink ends if yours are bad.

    Go to the Offroad Design website for more info on a complete Tuff Country lift.

    I want to keep cost down as much as posible. I just got the 33" Swampers, so there staying. I'm not gonna even run shocks, so ride quality doesn't matter! This is a mud bogg truck anyways!

    Im currently using Tuff country springs (ALL 4) and I will have some pics up by Friday to show the flex these things have! But I agree totally! Build it once , build it rite!
    It sucks to have to spend your money twice!

    Excellent springs. Good customer service. Talk to Stephen at ORD as mentioned. I think you'll be happy with them.
