Default For Those Who Have Lifted

I have a 1999 Ram 1500 4X4 and am about to start modding. You can see what I've started planning on at this link:

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=42952

I have my Ram Sport body conversion parts list done.

I am now researching 5" lift kits for the truck. So far, I've researched FabTech, Rough Country, SuperLift & SkyJacker kits.

I have no idea what I am doing here. I've never lifted a truck before except my K5 Blazer which was just a 2" block lift.

None of the basic kits have everything I need but they do have options so I have been able to figure out what's to be added to basically compare apples to apples as far as kit contents and pricing.

What I haven't been able to determine is quality.

I don't want to create an extreme rock crawler or mudder. This truck will see mostly on-road duty, will be off-road from time to time but nothing extreme. The seasonal snow storm and some mud from time to time is as nasty as it will get.

Yeah, I know I'll need to re-gear and I'll have to figure out my powertrain/computer issues but that's Phase 2.

So, any comments or experience with any or all of these manufacturers will be welcomed.

Thanks in advance, folks.

I used a rough country kit on my jeep. I thought the parts were pretty good quality. If the jeep guys cant afford Rubicon Express, ($$$$) they tend to buy Rough Country ($$). HTH
