    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

    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?
