Unfortunatley that kit is just asking for front end vibrations.
If you want to lift the front end 3" or more you need a kit that replaces the crossmember and had lifted knuckles

I agree about asking for front end vibration. I am looking for a 2.5" leveling kit. Any suggestions on whats the best for the price?

Tough to say. Bilstiens are really nice and probably the best out there. Best for the price I would highly recommend hell bent steel leveling spacers

I have a 6" BDS lift, awesome kit, has a lifetime warranty and looks amazing. I currently have mine sitting on Toyo M/T 35x12.50x20 on XD Badland 20x9s

So are you guys saying not to go with the 3.5 inch lift kit? the price is great and the wight of the part is ok also, if I wanna go with the 4inch or 6 inch lift kits it will cost me more than the parts price !! cuz as I said before am in Dubai now

Usually most people with 4" lifts wish they had just gone with a 6" lift in the long run
What are you looking for out of your truck/lift?

BTW I have a few friends from down your way, claysville and hickory

Bdiver, I would just go with a 2 in' instead of a 2.5 in' leveling kit to avoid problems in 4 wheel drive.
Your goin to want to do it right the first time you know... and as far as type of kit I recommend hell bent kit.. I am very pleased with mine.. It was only 70 dollars and took 3 days from the order until it was on my door step..
But you defiantly need to make sure that whatever kit you decide on will fit on the outdoorsman model before your order it

Plan since I had my last truck (06 F150) was to do the 4" kit. 6" has always seemed a bit much to me for some reason.
I'm really just going for looks and also trying to get something that the girlfriend (5'2" tall) will be able to hop in and out of. 6" is still a good possibility, I've got till my truck needs new tires to figure it all out. I'm just about to hit 5K on it.

I'm not too far really at all, the place I figured I'd get it done is up your way, Team Nutz, I haven't really seen anything else that does lifts that i've heard anything about.

EDIT: currently leaning toward BDS, mainly because I like the idea of a warrenty
