Ive heard Rize is back at er, could be wrong tho. Thing about the Rize is dont have to cut n weld. But i agree the Pure kits are really nice. Rize also had the crossmember n index ring in the kit. Everything was looked after. The Pure seems like alot of hassle, someone correct me if im wrong. The Rize looks clean as well. I dont do any offraoding so articulation isnt my main focus. Just was a nice highway ride with no bump steer

We are certainly much different from Rize in our suspension philosophy, design, and integration into the vehicle.

Our long arm systems keep the axle in position much better than a short arm system with drop brackets. Think about it, the axle is moved down 8 full inches up front, but you are still triing to control that axle with 37 to 40" tall tires with short arms and drop brackets? That axle with monster tires on it has alot of leverage on those drop brackets and small arms.

Certainly, the long arm system will do much better off-road. We know you said your truck is mostly a street driven vehicle, but with our systems, if you ever get bit by the bug to go off-road and have fun, you will have a product that can do so.

Yes, ours is a little more work for installation, but we feel that is justified by the end result.

Either way. Good Luck with your build!

Like Jeremy said the install of the PP kit is more involved than the Rize kit but well worth it in the long run.

Although the Rize kit is a bit easier to install they use front coils that are quite stiff and their steering solution has caused some issues in the past. I have heard of the bearings wearing out pretty quick and some guys who have broken the pitamn arms.

Defenitly interested in the Pure long arm setup. I want a real nice highway ride. Id rather do it right the first time rather than get a lift n hate the way it handles on the street. Truck will see the interstate for trips so i want it to ride good. The Pure coils are much better? I will do the extra work for a better ride. I just dont want to spend 6k on a lift that never goes offroad thats all. May i ask what Pure does for the steering and the front drive line? Crossmember hitting front shaft? I need to make a decision lol already have my 4" sold. I just dont want to regret it or spend way to much $ than i need to.

For front driveline corrections, if need be, we have made provisions in our long arm mounts for a 10 degree clocking ring. Then on some applications, so the driveshaft flange does not hit the OEM cross member, a 3/8 spacer is needed under the tranny mount and above the OEM cross member.

Our steering correction for 8" systems is a completely new steering system that converts a Ram HD steering over to a steering system similar to that of 05+ Super Duties. This way you have a completely independent drag link and tie rod with bump steer free operation.

If you have anymore questions, please let us know. 8 lug on here is one of our dealers and we are sure he could put a great package together for you!

All of our 8" systems come with that steering system! They have too. We just felt the OEM geometry stunck at that lift height!

Everything you said above is 100% correct!

We are not sure about your BD steering box brace... Sorry. Post up a pic and let you know what we think!
