Default New Outdoorsman. First time lifting a truck.

Hey guys, I just got a 15 Outdoorsman 1500 4x4 and I'm seriously considering a 6" lift. This truck may hang around for awhile, so i want to do this.

I want 20" wheels with 35x12.5 tires.Thats another thread, but Ive got a good idea of what I want for wheels/tires. Ive done some research when I was buying new wheels/tires for my Ramcharger.

My question is about the lift. Ive had numerous 4x4s but Ive never lifted any of them so your help is appreciated.

Whats a few good 6" suspension lift kits out there? I'm not looking for a true budget kit, but Im not looking for a super high end kit either.

Pictures of your rigs with kits would be appreciated if youre inclined to post them. I'll also look at some of the stickies to see what I can glom from them.

Thank you!

One other thing to add, I do a fair amount of boat towing and one thing I cant stand is too much rear end squat. What can I do to help avoid "motorboating" down the road under load?

Zone makes great kits. Middle of the road and are made by BDS. Go with the 5" coils in rear end instead of spacers. I have their 4" kit with 3" coils. Just a recommendation. With a 6" I would go with 37's so they fit the wheel well better. Just a suggestion.

Get a good set of load leveling airbags to take the tongue weight problem out of your life.

A load leveling hitch will help but won't totally eliminate the load squat at the hitch.
