Default BDS, ProComp, RCX

If money were no object which one of the kits would you guys run. My shop told me all three would have lifetime warrant on components, and that Procomp would have 5 year 60 thousand mile warrantee on the whole truck mechanically. Not gonna hurt my feelings tell me what ya think. Decision is up in two weeks. Thanks for any help.

If money was no object and the options are only those 3, I would select the BDS kit.
If I can add another one in there and again, money is not an object, I would go with the Fabtech coilover kit.
But that is $$

BDS if you want to spend and RCX if you are on a budget and looking for the best bang for your $$

Dont really care for the rear of the Pro Comp kit. Uses spacers and your stock coil to achieve height
Both BDS and Pro Comp use preload spacers up front to get it to 6" RCX is one strut spacer at 5.5"

rcx is junk. go with fabtech if you have the cash... if i had my time back thats what i would do. everyone has there own opinion but from someone with an rcx lift i wouldnt recommend it

yeah, the only thing that makes me wanna lean to pro comp is the 5 year power train warrantee and all that pro comp covers. And my guy at the shop said it would sit level when he finished with it. I told him if it didn't he would have to take it off, he seems assured. He recommended it highly and runs it on his. But i just wanna know about people experiences, and it seems like your not high on RCX. which your not the first I've heard.

well you get what you pay for... ive had many brands of lifts and this one was great at first but it seems like little things are going wrong nothing major but still.. for example... sway bar link broke... coils are sagged real bad... bushings blew out of rear shocks first time off road... rear shocks suck big time... the whole kit is gettin rusty and my truck is hardly used.... and im starting to hear alot of little night mares from other people.. il run it til it dies but i wont be purchasing an rcx lift again. and 90% of people will agree with me if theyre being honest
