Default options for lifting 4x4 9inches total

Hey,

I'm new to the truck world and interested in doing a 6inch suspension lift with a 3inch body lift. I am like to have input on brands of body lifts i could get?

Is there any thoughts to this? Good? Bad? the ugly?


i'm looking to do is just a 35inch wheel a tire down the line after my first set from the dealer runs out.
thanks!

I suggest you stay with a level to 6" of lift at most for a 35" tire

Other than that there are dozens of combinations to achieve 9" of lift.

That kit is sooooooo sooooooo overpriced.

You wouldn't need the Bilstiens. No kit needs them. But if you get the 5" rear you'll want it. The BDS kit lifts the front 4.5" without their preload spacer. That's gonna add .5" to your rake as it sits now. Even if you use the preload spacer you still got a good 2" of rake on avg.

Why you so set on BDS?

I just heard its a good brand. I am open to suggestions. My main focus is ride quality and quality parts. What are some suggestions. I did hear fox shocks are the shit tho. I know raptor uses them on there trucks.

I am open to suggestions, I have the money to do this and want to make sure i understand what i need so i don't get fooled by any local shop and pick the right brand. The local shop i called said they have been installing a lot of ready lifts. (http://www.readylift.com/)
