      6" is fairly tall... Because of the steering on these trucks it might be better to go with 4" on the suspension and instead trim the fenders to fit the tires (or you could do a 2" body lift).

      Skyjacker is probably about the best it gets currently in suspension lifts. They're also the only one with two different available drop pitman arms (9 times out of 10 it seems the bigger one (#FA600) is needed, though they don't include that one for some reason, but at least it is available).

      Hope that helps

      Between Tuff Country and Rough Country, hands down: Tuff Country.
      TC gives you full replacement axle brackets whereas RC gives you a drop extension plate for one side, which is known to bust open the front diff housing if you hit a bump good enough.

      Neither TC or RC is even close to the ruggedness of Skyjacker, however for mild/moderate wheeling it'll do fine. Good chance you may still want to get Skyjacker's #FA600 drop pitman arm though, as it'll match up better with any 4-6" lift than what the lift comes with.
