Default Anything better than RCX or BDS out there?

Ordered a '13, 1500 last night. Will be my first IFS truck. Starting to think about maybe doing a 4" lift on it, rather than just leveling w/Bilsteins.

Just be looking to put 35x12.50's on it, nothing big, but it will see a lot of real off road use.

Browsing the forum, all I'm seeing is RCX or BDS. I'd like something better than either of those.

Nothing against RCX. I've installed them on Jeeps for friends. For the money, their stuff is fine. Just not good enough for "my" purposes, is all.

Big Dick's... Ehhh, I do have something against them. Had a terrible experience dealing with them and their supposed "you break it we replace it" guarantee. Had one of their track bars break in half on me. Took a month of BS to even get an answer from them. When all was said and done, they not only did not replace it but they kept my broken track bar because I wouldn't pay shipping AGAIN to have them ship it back. So I not only didn't get my track bar replaced, I paid shipping to lose my broken one! All I can say, is "Efff BDS". They'll never see another penny from me.

And, really, again, for the money, BDS stuff is fine, but again, not really good enough for me.

So, anyway, anything better out there? It looks like Icon makes a nice setup for about $4k. Anyone running it? I know Carli makes decent stuff for the 2500's, but not sure about the 1500's?

How about CV's and half shafts? Anyone making good long travel harsh duty parts for these trucks?

Has to be more out there I'm not even aware of, since I've never really paid any attention to IFS parts before.
