Lifting my 3/4 ton

With so many 6 inch lifts out there, I cant make up my mind on which one id like to get, so all of you lifted superduties out there, whats the best bang for my buck? Ive seen rough country or tough country for around 800 on ebay, but I dont know if they are a good lift or not. Any opinions or tips would be greatly appriciated. One other thing thats been bugging me is installing it. The truck weighs way more than anything ive ever worked on before, and on top of that i dont have jackstands that go nearly high enough, so anyone that might have someone in the northwest that could help install, other than the raping id have to pay bruneel or les schwab would be of big help too. Thanks.

Re: Lifting my 3/4 ton

Re: Lifting my 3/4 ton

im pretty sure he wants to run 37's or 38's and from what i gatherd he wont tow all that often but occasionaly but probably not too heavy
