I am looking to get a 6" lift for my truck (2007 4WD DC TRD Sport) and am going back and forth between the Fabtech 6" performance lift kit with 2.5 Dirt Logic coilovers, or the Pro Comp 6" Stage II Lift kit (MX2.75 coilovers). I want to run 35" tires on 17" or 18" rims (depending on the requirements for the lift - I would prefer 17" rims).
I've been reading a lot of these threads about lifting our trucks, and the biggest piece of advice I've taken away is to avoid being "frugal" and just spend the money to lift it correctly. So far in my research, these are the two lift kits that seem to be the best, but I don't have any experience with either of these companies [or kits]; this will be the first truck I have lifted. I imagine that some of you guys have one of these lifts on your truck, what do you think? What about ordering a basic kit and providing my own coilovers - such as Fox 2.5 coilovers? Do you recommend a different/better 6" lift kit?
I plan to use my truck as a daily driver (city driving), but I will also use it for the occasional off-road excursion (dirt trails), as well as hunting, fishing, camping, and driving around the Army base (I'm ROTC now, but I've been to Ft. Benning a lot and know that I need my truck to be able to traverse the land nav courses and other various dirt roads and tank trails where I am going to be stationed). I don't plan to use my truck to do any rock crawling (specifically), unless rocks are apart of the trail I'm on. I also want the truck to be able to handle driving in adverse conditions (i.e. snow and high water) that I may encounter in daily life in states such as Washington or Colorado.
I apologize if this question has already been covered; I've searched multiple times and read many of the related threads, but no thread [that I found] directly addressed my question. If such a thread exists, I would appreciate being pointed in the correct direction.
Any and all advice is appreciated. I'm open minded to what I finally settle on; I'm more concerned with getting a quality lift for my truck that will enable me to go where I want to go, than having the tallest or most expensive lift on the road.
