Suspension lift Q's

Hey all, I was just curious about what kind of lift kits you guys are running. What made you choose that lift. Also, what size tires and wheels... pics would be awsome!!!

One more thing... how often do you guys tow with the lifted truck?

Re: Suspension lift Q's

ive got a procomp 8.5" lift kit on my truck if i did it all over again i would go with an icon or rize kit or possibly a kelderman air ride kit. I tow pretty frequently with my truck. Anything from my 20' bass boat to a 20' bumper pull flat bed trailer to a 24' box trailer to my 32' gooseneck trailer and have had 20k or a little more on my gooseneck with my lift kit. Also i am running
38" tall toyo mts on my truck.

Re: Suspension lift Q's

When I bought my truck, I was also looking at an 07 identical to mine, but lifted 6" with 37" tires. It was beautiful. I would have bought that one over mine, but I didnt want to have to deal with front end problems being lifted so high, and also I wanted to be able to tow a big fifth wheel with it. So opted not to, but man these trucks look great lifted, I love em.

Thanks for all the good info guys... keep it coming.

Re: Suspension lift Q's

I was going with Rize until they put everything they have on backorder for 7-10 weeks and refuse to ship me a kit from a wharehouse in canada.

Re: Suspension lift Q's

Both Rize and Icon are bada$$ kits, it seems. Not too badly priced either. Both under 2k for the kit. I dont think I want a 6" kit, i would like a 4.5" kit. I use my truck for hunting and camping, so I would still like it to be useable. Although, I must say, a 6-8" kit with 22" rims and 37" MT's looks freakin sick...

Re: Suspension lift Q's

I have a 4" RCD kit and am very pleased with the ride, but it sits a little low, is pretty much right between a leveling kit and a 4.5" icon kit.



If I were to do it all over again I would just go with the Icon 4.5" kit. For an ultimate kit I would start with the Icon 4.5" front kit with either the Icon 4-link or OUO adjustable radius arms, and then add in either the 1" tei spacer or a 2.5" leveling kit spacer to get the height I wanted and run a set of OUO traction blocks out back in the height needed to make it all level.
