My experience with a 6 inch lift is they are for show not off road durability. I am not saying that a 6 inch lift cant be taken off road there are just not built that strong.

Why a 6 inch lift? why not a 3 inch? you dont gain any clearance with a 6 inch lift.

Also the big company is fabtech i have installed many of the products aswell as procomp.

How hard are you on it? I helped my buddy install the first fabtech kit back in 04 when the 05 came out and that thing has broke so many times. Had to redesign it and sent them back how it should be made and they redesigned it again

Front: Spindles will give you 4" lift then you can go with your choice of suspension to gain the other 2". I would go with coilovers, or you can do the adjustable bilsteins.

Rear: I would do the all-pro leaf back that will give you 4" of lift in rear with unloaded bed then maybe a 1-1.5" block. I deff wouldn't go over 1.5" block, of you could just do a custom leaf pack.

6" for offroading? Those two don't mix.

I haven't had any problems. It's the only lift I've had though so I've got nothing to compare it to. But I'm definitely a happy customer
