Default 2012 1500 lift?

I have a 2012 1500 4x4 and want to lift it just a little. I've been told the 2.5 in lift/level kit from Pro Comp is pretty good. Has anyone tried this kit? Any suggestions would help out a lot. Once I lift it I'll put up some pics.

Pro comp is a good quality company and would def recommend them to anyone. I got a bilstein 6in lift on mine and love it. They are pretty similar in quality, good luck man. Ken

Thanks Ken, I just cant afford to put a lift like that on mine. Wish I could but they're like $2500 for a 4" lift and $400 for a 2".

i used the daystar pollyurithane kit. It was a 2 1/2 on the fron and an inch and a bit on the back. it looks really good!! and with the pollyurithane kit you dont loose any ride quality or get any vibrations or road noise cuz it absorbs all of that. where as other kits use metal spacers and ur pretty much using metal to metal contact and that dosent absorb any noise or vibration!

Just remember man, you pay for what u get. I'm a firm believer in paying for durability and not having to do something 2-3 times or having to replace anything prematurely. Good luck man

Yeah I definetly agree with getting what you pay for. I got a lot better job starting next week so I may just wait and get the bigger one...I think 4" with 35s would look sick.
