    What kind of wheeling will you do? Terrain, speed, frequency, daily driving habits, etc. all factor into what would work best for you. Start with the application and that'll help determine what would be a good setup for you.

    My truck is a daily driver. I zip around Fort Bragg most of the time. On average two/three weekends a month I will make the 200 mile trip home. I want to start going into the mountains up there, do the occasional mud hole at Bragg and hit some jumps. Is one of those kits better than the other?

    Either of those systems will work well for you. Both are excellent choices.

    Note that the Fox kit does not lift the rear while the IVD one includes an add-a-leaf to give you 1.5" of rear lift.

    As for pricing, I'd recommend checking out Wheeler's Offroad. They have an excellent reputation and great pricing.
