Okay, I've decided against doing a budget lift(shackles, add a leaf :bottom: ) . Gonna hold out for a good lift. I'm trying to decide what to go with though. Thats where you guys come in to play...lol. I've been looking at either a rough country 4" lift kit with shocks and everything for $499 ....... OR ........ a 5.5 inch SOA rough country kit for $349. If the soa is better,(so I've read), then why is it cheaper? It comes with everything you need(plus shocks), just like the SUA kit. I'm confused.....lol...so many different ways to go about this. The SOA gives a more comfy ride and more lift for cheaper......so why would I want to do a SUA kit??? :banghead: Either way, it's gonna be a little while before I actually buy one, but I want to know exactly what I'm getting into either way I go. BTW, my stock leaf packs are nice and tight still after 18 years so a SOA would work great right? So far, I think I'm leaning more towards the SOA.
