    Im planning on installing a lift kit this winter and i think im gonna go with a 6inch lift kit. Now i dont know which kit to get. I was going to buy the Skyjacker 6inch or 8inch but now im tempted about buying the tuff country 6inch lift. Does anyone have any ideas and pros or cons of the kits and the differences between the 2?
    Thanks im new to this and im trying to learn before i spend my money. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I used the Tuff Country lift. Went with both front and rear springs. It's a good kit. I've also heard nothing but good about the BDS kits.

    I also hear that BDS has a great warranty.

    I would pick Tuff country or BDS. Skyjacker makes the best late model coil lifts but I don't know about their leaf springs. I wouldn't worry about running blocks. I tow, pull, and wheel mine and I have 4" blocks. I have never had any problems what so ever.
