Lift Choices

This is not my first truck by any means but it will be my first lift. Have been doing a lot of reading on the subject here and elsewhere on the web but I'm not 100% sure I have everything down. Based on my research, I'm pretty set on a 6" lift and I've narrowed it down to the following three kits but I was hoping that someone that has experience with them could pipe in with their opinions of the pros and cons. Just about any insight would be appreciated

Fabtech K7019 ~$1600

  • 6" Basic System
  • Use 315/70R17 tires w/ 17x8 wheels w/ 4 5/8" BS w/ minor trimming
  • 1 FTS26026BK Component Box 1
  • 1 FTS26007BK Componet Box 2
  • 1 FTS26010BK Spacer Box
  • 2 FTS7181 Performance Rear Shocks
Pro Comp K5073B ~$1600
  • Lift Height: 6 Inches
  • Front Lift: Drop Crossmember,Strut Spacers & Steering Knuckles
  • Includes: Differential Drop Brackets, Sway Bar Drop Brackets
  • Rear Lift: Block/U-Bolt Kit with Add-A-Leafs
  • Shocks: Rear ES9000 Shocks

  • Max Tire Size: 35X12.50
  • Wheel Size Range (Inches):18+Wheel Width Range (Inches):8-9
  • Min-Max Backspace (Inches)4.0-4.65

Also, how much of a difference would the following kit be compared to the two listed above and is it really worth the additional thousand dollars?

Pro Comp K5073BMX ~$2600

  • Lift Height: 6 Inches
  • Front Lift: Drop Crossmember, Steering Knuckles & Coil Overs
