Going for a 6" lift and was quoted about $1700? I know there are alot of companies out there and lifts, but is this a decent price?

$1700 sounds about right. Make sure whatever kit you choose you don't cheap out on shocks.

I wouldnt put a $1700 lift on any truck especially a 2011. If your looking for a cheaper lift i would go with a 4link bds kit

I will check it out now. I am thinking of going with 35 to 37s too, maybe super swampers?? I want it to look mean and stocky and ready for offroad. The noise isn't an issue its just my toy for fun :))

Don't get Nitto Mud Grapplers....loudest tire I've ever had. Will never buy those again. Toyo MT or the General tires that Jesse has would be the way to go.

Nittos are a great tire maybe not the mud grapplers, but the set of my trail grapplers are wearing great and no louder then toyo mt. Also a mean appearance

That's what I was thinking. What size lift is on your truck?
I am just going with a 3" kit due to warranty issues if I go with a 6"??

6" BDS with the rear springs package, no warranty voided here but also have been with this dealer for many years.

What's that suppose to mean??
My 06 had a BDS 4link 6" and now my 11 has a Skyjacker 4link 6". Skyjacker was half the price of the BDS and has as good or better build quality then the BDS

Well i bought a cheap fabtech lift and i guess i thought it was a functional lift and i was wrong... I want a suspension system that does more than just lift the truck...

U want a good lift find a 4link setup that does not have steel heim joint ends. They pound out and are garbage. BDS has greased bushings. And skyjacker uses vulcanized rubber bushings
