go with BDS. they have a better angle on control arms, better powdercoating finish, no hassle warranty. if your going to get a lift then spend some money and you will tell in the ride. my buddy has a rough country and i have a bds and its like night and day. i only spend a couple more $$$ and am very happy with it. if you still want a rough country my buddy is taking his off and selling it for a BDS. :headbang:

Rize by far is a much better lift than R.C the ride is very smooth and its a good looking lift :headbang::headbang:

here is some more input. RC lifts pull the center of your wheel back a little bit because the lower control arm isnt long enough. so my buddy got adjustable ones from top gun customs and that fixed the problem.. but if your looking for a dirt cheap lift then thats not going to help you much unless you just plan on runnin 35 instead of 37s :confused013:

Rough Country's 5" lift has adjustable upper and lower control arms. I ran one with 37's for over 50,000 miles, on an 05 2500

I am a firm believer that you will get what you pay for. If you are wanting a cheap lift then that is exactly what you will get. If you drive you rig on the street and or you tow with your truck then you owe it to yourself to purchase a good quality suspension that will handle all you want. This is not a place you want to be skimping on. If you suspension fails or becomes unsafe you and those around you will pay for it.

Rough Country lifts are of as good of quality as anything else in the basic suspension lift line of off the shelf parts. A few years back everyone was bashing Tuff Country because of their 6" spacers and cheaper prices but now they are considered fine...... Take a look firsthand before you bash them! I have run RC stuff on many trucks with never a problem. Their coils are a little stiffer, but on the bright side your 6" lift wont turn into a 3" by next year like the super soft superlift coils will. :party018:

The spring rate for Superlift coils is around 430-440 lbs....... that is anything but super soft!
