Default Lift kits

I'm thinking my new truck needs a 4"-5" lift. I used to be really into lifts and off road stuff, but I lost interest so I don't know who makes the best stuff anymore. Any suggestions who to go through? I want a good ride for sure, and stuff that will last a long time. I used to go with Skyjacker stuff, but learned it isn't really all that great of stuff. Give me some ideas on what to do.

Gump my son has an Avalance ( I know totally different animal) with a 6" FabTech lift and Bilsteens under it . It does ride smooth ! Also someone had a U-Tube video of a Dodge with a Carley suspension (I think thats how it was spelled) . That thing just floated over some real rough stuff.

X2 on a kore setup. My dad put the leveling kit on his megacab and it made a world of difference in how the truck rides ond handles . I'm doing it to mine once I have the money to.

Same as Carli ($1375.00) and Lorenz ($1085.00) kits. Kore stuff rides a little rougher, but is better off road. Either one is better than stock. Get me my Tax refund and buy a kit

i would never buy a kore kit, way over priced and not worth it. get a tuff country if your going that route. setup a good air bag system and enjoy your ride.

I think you should check what the other brand names are selling their equivalent kits for. Can't find any kits under $1000 with rear springs and not blocks.
The Kore kit for less than $700 gives:
Same coils used in the other kits
4-leaf spring packs for rear
Bilstein 5100 shocks
Sway bar drops blocks and all hardware
Sounds like a pretty damn good deal to me. Can upgrade later on if I feel it be necessary to go taller like spring spacers and blocks.

I know Kore makes good quality stuff, but don't overlook Carli. I have never read a bad review about them and I'm pretty sure they only make Dodge lifts.

thruen and carli make top notch stuff. owners of kore kits do nothing but complain about em. for the money id go with top gun customz, if you want a high end kit, buy a kelderman. but in my honest opinion theres no better lift than a bds, hands down best product. lifetime warrenty, no fine print bs either, if it breaks, its replaced.
