That's the situation, I'm always in the mountains, always climbing over something, fallen tree, mean rocks. Nasty mud. So spending a bit more on some beast suspension would be ok. But I don't want to over do it you know.

So $2700 installed with Coil Overs? What brand?

Default Fabtech .. the best IMO !

Sometimes you need to buy nice or you'll end up buying twice or just not happy ...... Fabtech is one of the best besides Rancho , a little more $ but it won't give you problems in the long run .. I had the Fabtech 6.5 "on my 02 SCREW I ran that truck hard and had no issues with the Fabtech suspension ...... The 4" Fabtech is on sale for 1200 on their web site .. The handling is night and day over the stock junk ... I couldn't swing the extra 4500 for the lift and wheels this time around , I sure miss the handling of my 02 ... Id go with the Fabtech myself ... Rancho isnt a bad choice either

No no no I wish, 2700 installed just for the rancho 6" alignment and all. But would give me a sick discount on whatever coil overs I wanted to do if I do them

If you do the RS7000MT's, you just might find that you don't need to spend the extra $ on coilovers! Mine are fantastic.

Don't listen to the 4 Wheel Parts sales rep. Those guys are bungholes. They would sell you used oil if they could. Zone is one of the top quality lift kits out there. Rancho with their rebate makes it a no brainer. It takes a while to get the rebate but pay once cry once. They use a welded one piece crossmember, sturdy as hell. 1/4 thick steel for the crossmembers. RS7000MTs are awesome. RS9000xl for adjustable ride.

I absolutely hate the guys at my local 4wp, they try to over charge me on any labor they do. I really wouldn't go with them to do your lift, just my .02$. Anyways I have a fabtech lift and it's taken a beating. Haven't broken on thing on the lift, my pos bilsteins crapped out on me tho.

Pretty much all of these kits I think are of good quality...some better than others,yes.Thats with anything.Decide from your budget what type ,strut or spacer (front)lift and go from there.The reps @4wheel have to sell you up on their equipment ,makes good business sense.I have a Zone lift (BDS company)and it's pretty damn stout. I hunt on my truck, run a farm,take it to OBX and FT Fisher NC which is damn tough terrain and no problems.Research the lifts,some install differently,look different etc.Dont let a rep from one company steer you one direction for the sole purpose of profit.
