@drbeardface; have you put that lift through any testing off-road ? I'm trying to decide on the route to take and love your stance. But I need something rugged enough to keep up with the wheeling I do take my truck to do and still make it back down the interstate to my house

I haven't put mine through the paces yet. I have a friend who has one and he's had good luck with mudding and simple trails. The lift came highly recommended and had overall good reviews online.

Love the pics. I have a 2011 Super Crew 4x4 XLT with a 2in Leveling Kit running 33s. I saw on the McGaugheys Suspensions website that they had a 4in Lift on a truck almost exactly similar too mine and I loved the look. Although i love the 6in look, then I will have to go 35s and there goes power. Living in Kommiefornia hinders my choices on tuners.

You worried about power?? Did you not see my video? I do burnouts.. 0-60 in 8.5 seconds or less.. No power loss unless towing up a hill.. On flat im good to go

See, I just love the 6.5 look. Stance is awesome. I'll probably end up getting a 6.5 from McGaugheys.

McGaughys, they're out of California. Typically been in the classic car, street rod, lowering suspension world but they've broken into the lift community. It rides great, it looks great. I'm happy with it.

4" Skyjacker. Comes with actual leaf replacements and not blocks.


Sits level when towing, which is how suspension on a pickup is designed to work
