    I just bought my '12 DCSB Sport Upgrade a few months ago and I'm planning to lift it sometime (hopefully) soon. I'm still fairly new to the truck scene and not too familiar with everything just yet but I'm doing research :)

    I'm interested in a 6" lift kit with 33" or 35" tires on 18-20" wheels, but don't know what is better - Pro Comp, or Fabtech. I'm not too concerned about the MPG's I'd get after installation, just the durablity and wear and tear, and overall value, etc. What's the scoops, guys and gals? Pro Comp, or Fabtech?
