Hey guys I'm kinda new here, just got my first full size truck a few months ago. I planning on either the Tuff Country or Trailmaster 4 inch lift. I know everyone says go with a 6 inch but I have underground parking where I live and anything over 4 inches of total lift just won't clear. I'm also considering an add a leaf for the rear since I tow a 21 foot bass boat and car hauler. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about either lift kit? btw I allready did search and didn't find too much about either kit.

Thanks,
Brent

Most of the current knuckle kits besides cognito only drop the dif down 4" or 4.5" and they claim them to be a 6" kit because they crank the T-bars. If i was you i would get the Rancho kit and just not crank it and runn 33's IMO.

The Rancho knuckle kit is a true 6" kit; however, the diff is only dropped down ~4.5"

I'd second this idea on a NBS truck. I have the rancho on 33's and still fit in my garage with a 7' door and have been in a couple of parking garages. Its all in how much you crank on the knuckle lifts. I have pretty flat cv's and 40k on the kit without a problem. I ran the trailmaster 4" kit on my old body style, it was a full drop design. I liked it and never had any issues with it either.... fyi...

Get the Rancho. 1 piece subframe = yummy. In all seriousness, it's a strong lift and all of their shocks are a good choice (unlike those two other knockoff brands you listed).:D
