Rancho only makes a 4" kit. You get what you pay for, so if you want good springs, and brackets get a quality brand (Rancho, BDS, Skyjacker).

I have had my Rough Country kit on my truck since 2004. Almost 4 years now. I have been very happy with it. No broken parts, rides good, allows enough flex. The only thing I would have done different is I would have saved a few more bucks for the new leafs instead of doing blocks in the rear.

As Stan said, you do get what you pay for, and Rough Country will remain high in my recommended list.

Im running a procomp stageII from 4wheelcustoms (vendor below). got a price i couldnt refuse shipped to my door. its been a great setup for me and i have beat it pretty good.

BDS is probably the best but you pay for it

not sure how many people here have them, but ive always heard that they are more show then go so to speak (though i may be thinking fabtech)

there is a used 6in lift for sale in the Bronco for sale section, go for that. Id try to get used to keep the cost down.

Sounds like what everyone wants...

But really, a big favorite here on FSB is Rough Country w/ AAL instead of blocks. You will find more people running that then most any other brand. Reasonably priced, good for moderate wheeling, and good customer service. That is the lift I am going to get when I come up with some flow.

BDS is expensive yes, but their warranty can't be beat. But yeah, like what the others said, you get what you pay for. I wouldn't swing for a used lift kit, personally. You never know how it was driven.

That is really all TTB lifts depending on what you are going to be doing. All of them are can be rough on your frame (etc). But as long as you are smart about it and dont try break it, then you are good. Like I have said a few posts up. RC has done me good. Almost 4 years now. and 2 of those years was a DD/weekend wheeler.

They're all about the same... I mean, how many times can companies re-invent the wheel? They all use the same metal, same design, same concepts, blah, blah, blah. 1/2 of the Rough Country parts that people get have Superlift part numbers stamped into them :scratchhe

I have no experience with rough or tuff country (two different companies), but from what I have heard, they tend to be a little stiffer- stiffer means less flex and a harsher ride. Spend the extra money and get a good set of MONOTUBE shocks. Search on here for the shocks, shocksandsprings sells nice Bilsteins for a great price on ebay.

As for ProComp, I refuse to buy their stuff. I will shop at 4wheeparts but not buy "their" products. I know their AAL's are thick and thats not good.

I am interested in this too.

I have my eyes on a RC 6" lift with everything on Ebay ($536.00). It is not expesive but it looks like a good kit. Comes with springs, drop brackets, drop radius arm brackets, 4 shocks, drop pitman arm, steering shock, blocks + add a leaf,extended brake lines and hardware. The only thing extra that I need are front and rear sway bar extentions. My extended cab is just my daily driver for work. A friend at work has a 97 F-250 with a 4" RC lift with a 3" body lift and 36" swampers as his daily driver for work.The fronts are leaf springs but still a TTB.

I guess if I do go with this kit I can upgrade later to the extended raduis arms if needed?
