Someone has on craigslist saying that they will trade there 2wd 5 inch lift kit for stock suspension. Any good? This is all I know.

What brand lift could it be? If it is actually close to a 5 inch, I would trade my stock then take my body lift out and sell it.

5" lift would most likely be fabtech or douchetech.

Fabtech is a far superior kit then the douchetech. But its the same with Camburg and Fabtech. Camburg is far better but Fabtech still works.

There are lots of guys running the Douchetech lift. But either one (depending condition) is a good deal.

I think he is keeping the whole package. So he will be at 8-9" lift.

I dont know yet, the guy has not gotten back to me. If I would get it, I would probably sell the body lift.
