I like Prothane kits, I've had some of their bumpstops fail, and they replaced them, on my word, no charge.. The body lifts are complete, good hardware, etc... some body lift kits only stack up on the stock bushings, prothane does not,, the old rubber is in a box up in my barn ,,

JKS body lifts are popular along with their MML kits.

A body lift is pretty much a body lift. It's hard to go wrong.

Keep in mind that just because a body lift does or doesn't replace the original bushings doesn't make it a good or better body lift. Personally, I'd rather have one that kept the original OEM rubber bushings; I'd rather have the superior vibration dampening of the rubber bushings.

Savvy makes a nice BL that uses the stock rubber pieces, and the BL pucks are shaped properly to fit the tub on the top and also grab the rubber pieces on the bottom. They also include spacers for the rubber grill snubbers to ensure your grill is properly supported. Those are the main two features I'd look for when buying a BL.
