    I saw this too, and I was wondering the same thing because I really want a 4 inch lift. I had a 1990 Toyota Pickup that I put a 4 inch Rough Country on. I wasn't too impressed with the quality, but it was alright for a beat-up truck. However, with my new one I want nicer quality. The new lifts look better, but I'm a little reluctant still... I believe I would need to get new UCA's if I got the Rough Country, right?

    You will 100% not need UCA's. because its a drop bracket lift the UCA's will be put at the stock angle. No need for aftermarket UCA'S

    Rough country made in the good ole USA dyersburg Tennessee perhaps they just are not as greedy and fab tech and procomp and the others who make six inch lift. Why is everybody so freaked out about blocks my truck rides great .

    The blocks do not necessarily affect your ride. They increase the possibility axle wrap and can decrease the life of your leaf springs.

    Rebels62 installed it on his kit but from looking at the kit looks like they cut corners and didn't box in the cross members for extra strength like alot of other db kits.
