    I am not looking for the best of the best but this looks fairly complete. I know it has rear blocks but I'm 17 and trying to save for university so funds are tight. Maybe I'll build a shackle flip some day? I have a friend that can weld pertty good. What else would you reccomend if this kit is crap?

    You seem to be missing the details of the lift you are asking about. If you are starting with a 4" lift, you can do a homemade shackle flip in the rear. Here are some details on how to do this: http://www.coloradok5.com/shackleflip.shtml

    I had that lift, for sale now too, it was decent, rode kind of stiff, but it flexed well enough.

    yep, rough country lift kit, if you think blocks will suit your needs, id say it looks like a good deal, blocks is the easyiest way of lifting the rear of the truck anyway, looks like a decent deal. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Where do you see that? I only see $62 or $75. He's in Canada and that would mean even more to ship up there unfortunately. Maybe even enough where it would be cheaper simply to buy from a place up there. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
