Anyone know the cheapest 4" lift kits!? The cheapest one I know of is 430.00 for a rough country.

GO STEELERS!!!

rough country lifts arent bad but the backets are on the cheesy side. plus dont expect it to give any more wheel travel or flex. overall its a good kit but like u already know, it isnt the best.

yea people will always say its cheesey.. only cuz compared to whats out there it it, its all about the money you spend,

it will do its job for sure, just may need some teweaking on the owners behalf to make it a bit stronger

good luck on the buy, yer truck would look sweet with a 4" lift

You might have to drill out the hole in the blocks for the back cause when I put this lift on my truck the block would'nt fit on the leaf springs just right. other than that it was really easy to put on. Oh yeah the pitman arm is a B***h to get off. I had to have the ford dealership do it for me. Good luck!

You can rent a pitman arm puller at an autozone for 20 bucks, that you get back in full when you take it back.
