Questions about lifting...?

So im going to be lifting my truck and im kinda new to it. I have the basic knowledge on lifts, but nothing extensive. I hear alot of good things about fabtech, so i think im going to go with them (unless you guys can convince me otherwise.) Is there any other brands i should look into for lifts? (Im all for quality, and getting what you pay for... so i do want a high end lift that has a good reputation...)I was just looking at their site and they got a number of different systems. My question is whats the difference between the basic system, the radius arm, 4 link system, and the coilover shock conversion? Whats the pros and cons on them, which one should i go with. I was looking at the pictures under the multiple shock system and i was wondering what all those cylinder looking things were, and what they do and the benefit of them? The reason why im lifting it is basically bc of looks and i do have a atendancy to go off road every now and then considering i got a couple of 4wheelers and friends with them. Anyways, when i do lift my truck what should i expect... am i going to loose my the way my truck rides or anything like that? Is it a hard installation to do, or is it something i might be able to do myself a friend and some instructions....? Any info on this would be much appreciated, thanks fellas.

I would suggest letting proffessionals install it...they can get it right the first time, and they can fix it if they dont do it right. As far as for the different systems, it would be best to compare each one with what you will be using it for..you dont want to outdo yourself against the use of your truck.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*

I am going with skyjacker 6" lift... just cause I like the red on a black truck... fabtech makes a good kit as well...I would also have a proffessional install it.

Fabtech makes good products. If that is what you are comfortable with, then by all means, go for it. After all, you are the one who has to be happy with it.

FordRacing200 - thats what your running on the gas job?

I had Donahoe racing front springs on my 06 F350 - Rode rough compared to the Fabtech springs

If your going mostly for looks - Rize.
