Default rough country or rancho

i have heard great things about all the different companies for suspension lifts. i narrowed it down to rough country and rancho because they are not as expensive as most but have had great reviews. does anyone have any personal insight with these to lifts? i prefer to do a 4 inch lift, and later add a 2 inch body lift. just looking for some good insight on the two companies

I have a 3" RC suspension lift and have no complaints. I've had it for about a year.

I would have to say go with Rancho. They are a better company from what I have seen and read about. I cannot talk since I dont have one of those but I am going off of what I have heard.

I belive RC to have crappy quality and Rancho to be the opposite. some guys have told me the RC lifts do not equal to what they say and it doesnt come with all the parts. Just little crap like that threw me off of RC.

Txhemi, if it worked for you then great! Maybe they have changed, dont know

Rancho is a repuitable brand, but I think RC has upped the quality with their newer lifts. You used to hear that they would sag and stuff, but that was in the older gen rams. I've heard nothing but good things about the lifts the for the 4th gens. I plan on buying a RC 4" as well here in a couple months. It's cheap, but it works. I heard the parts are like cast iron instead of aluminum, which is partly why it's cheaper, but that's fine with me. It all works the same. Plus RC comes with a lifetime warranty.
