6 inch lift or not?

941 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Germanator
Now that I got my new bumpers setup, I'm still debating if I should get my 2WD lifted to a 6 inch. I'm currently running the 3 inch spindle lift.
Any thoughts? Wonder what it will look like with my setup.

what lift kit to go with? should I go somewhere in Houston or Dallas to get a better install than at 4WP?
CST, Go to 4wp during a sale or you can try another shop (i dunno of anything great), the kit should not be that hard to install though

Why not the 7" CST kit like Aber. is running? Nice strong, well built kit. And it is 1" taller than a 6" kit :crazy:

yea the fabtech 6" for our trucks isnt all that bad as ppl make them out to be. i ran the 6" for about 15k miles and loved it until i got the "want to be higher" disease. the kit is easy to install too, real easy! i think it would look great. the front end doesnt sag too much either, maybe an inch once the springs settle after a while.

I went to 4WP today to get new knobs for my Rancho shocks, since they had cut the front ones off. Now I adjusted them all the way to stiff. Though they told me they did adjust them. When I crowled underneath and checked, they were all the way to the left. What morons. I turned them now all the way to the right.
Also got a quote for a 6 inch / 7 inch lift.
Here is what they suggested:
7 inch Procomp, deducted the Procomp spindles I have. New gas shocks for a stiffer ride, the MX-6's.
Quote comes out at $1305 total.
Then I need new tires, already got the rims with the right offset. 305/70/R16 $190 ea.

What do you guys think?
