No budget limit -- Whats my best lift options??

I want to do a lift on my truck. Not really any budget limit. I dont need the highest truck with the best rims, I just want the best quality for what I want to do. I travel the entire country, usually making it across the states a few times a year. SO, I've been all over utah, washington, cali, colorado, moab, phoenix, etc. Haven't done too much out in the east, but I'm currently in TN right now and am itching to find a good spot. I had a guy give me a quote on what he thought was a good lift setup but I think as I've read through a lot of these forums, I want to get some more options. I'm open to long travel, I'd get a 6 inch, I'd stay 3 inch, I honestly dont care. I kind of tend to lean away from the longtravel cause I dont think I'll be needing that setup that often but at the same time, if it operates as a normal truck all the rest of the time, I would get it just so I can do some crazy stuff. Anyway, just wanted to ask the question---

If you could get or already have some amazing lift setup, using some of the top performance products that actually make a difference and are not just a name, what would it be ? I see a lot of lift threads, but most of them are people that are looking for an economical solution too. Not saying that I dont care about money at all, I'm just saying, if money wasn't that much of an issue, which way would you go?

I am waiting to lift my truck RIGHT NOW! lol.... I just hate making that decision without a lot of research.

I guess I didnt say much about what I like to do. I would rather go fast and have medium rockcrawling abilities than primarily be a crawler. I dont know if that makes sense, and if I can have both then great. It seems like some guys just go slow and get over obstacles. That has always bored me, faster is better.

what year truck?

Id go with a nice mid travel setup.

Upper control arms with uni ball joints, extended travel coilover shocks up front.

A nice heavy duty leaf pack out back with a nice set of shocks.

If money is no object, I would suggest a high quality extended coilover set for up front and a matching set of rear shocks in back. The coilovers up front will provide the lift and a custom made leaf pack for the rear lift. Upper control arms will likely be needed as well.

If you like speed you can always go a full LT set up which is not a "lift" but a full redo of your suspension.

Some brands to consider would be ICON, King, or Fox.

Talk to Down South Motorsports they have great deals and well regarded for having great customer service.

i agree with the guys who said the icon stage 4

http://www.iconvehicledynamics.com/s...d-Stage-4.html

that is a really solid set up in my opinion.

And you might as well throw a supercharger on there while youre at it. At that point while youve got it on the jack put on board air and ARB lockers in the front and back. and when youve got the gears right there you might as well re-gear. Man now that i think about it the list can go on and on...
