:agree2:

If you're going for just looks...Fabtech, procomp, superlift, etc are all pretty much the same. For ride comfort, performance and looks check into Dialed Motorsports, Carli and Thuren. :thumbsup:

By the way if you dont need a 6'' lift you can fit 35'' or even 37'' tires without rubbing on these 3'' lifts and they look really good. I ran the procomp 5'' lift with MX6 shocks and it came off in pretty short order. :doh:

For a track bar the Carli unit is a great way to go.

As far as your suspension goes you would need to have a budget in mind as you can spend anywhere from $700 for a Rough Country lift up to $10K for the upcoming 6" Carli system with all the fixins'.

Are you looking to go Long Arm or stay short arm? Long Arms will ride much better than short arms... At the 6" level, this is where you really need to start going long arm. What size tire are you looking to run?

Honestly, if you have any rust on your front fenders, I would buy some fiberglass fenders from Fiberwerx, repair the rust, and put the wider tires on there since they will fit under their fenders.

What kind of width are you looking to run for tires and what wheel size (please include backspacing)?

My truck is clean as a whistle! not one bit of rust on her! But idk bout rims right now.. just looking to get her jacked up and then tires.. I'm not much of a rim person.. stock rims look fine to me... that's why i am thinkin bout leaving the size i got so i don't have ta switch.. but i love the look of tires offset.. idkk..

If you are looking at running 35's on stock wheels then I would stick with something in the 2-4" range as far as lift.

Well, tire and wheels are going to determine your next course of action!
