Which Body Lift?

I am purchasing a 3" bl from summit sometime this week. I have been looking at them and was wondering which of the dozen or so people recommend? They all seem to be pretty similar some just dont have the bumper brackets. Thanks for any input.

the summit DOES have bumper brackets. I used it and it had everything needed for a successful lift. if your getting a PA kit you're basically just paying for the name, that's the difference.

Gap guards are a waste of money, you can make them for under 10 dollars and 10 minutes at lowe's. I have a set of PA fronts sitting in the garage if anyone wants them though.
