    I am thinking about putting a 6" lift on my truck and wonder if anyone can tell me if there is a significant difference between the Tuff country lift and the Fabtech lift other than the $600 price tag.

    Sorry I didn't make that clear. Tuff country is about $1250 and the Fabtech is $1850

    looks like the $1250 Tuff country kit is a coil spacer lift, with coil overs it costs over $2k - even more than the Fabtech kit.

    Go Fabtech between those two, you won't regret it. (too much :D)

    Come to think of it, since you're a PreRunner, you can get spindles that will lift you 4'', and then get some adjustable Bilstein shocks that will lift you another 2.5'' max on top of the 4'', giving you 6.5'' of lift. WAY better than a DB lift, if you're a PreRunner.
