Default Is Fabtech a good Lift?????

I have been shopping around lately for lifts for my 06 and i came across a good deal on a Fabtech 6". I am just curious about the quality of the lift.

Fabtech Makes a good quality lift. I believe they recently went out of business so that may be the reason you are getting a good deal on it. I dunno how much you are getting the lift for. You may want to check out rough country's redesigned lift for your truck. I am not sure how they compare on price but their warranty is good and they are still in business so if you have any issues they stand behind their prod. Either way is a good way to go.

I've heard that FabTech doesn't always provide good customer service or stand behind their warranty.

I've used Rough Country products and have not had any problems and their customer service is good.

I've heard of very few trucks that have a Fabtech lift. Not to say their product quality is bad, but not too many people go with them. BDS is a lot more popular around me.

I have heard iffy things on fabtech aswell!! either you love them or hate them...the same with customer service, as mentioned they are apparently not in business any more so maybe avoid it! Heard great things about BDS would recommend their kits to anyone

rough country is an argument for mean, i know of many people complain of lots of sag after about 6 months...they are a cheaper product, when it comes to something like a lift though i would rather shell out a little more and get a better product!
