Skyjacker vs. Rancho vs. Superlift Suspensions

Finally got the thumbs up from the wife to do a 3" Suspension Lift for my 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Question is, who do you guys like better?? Skyjacker, Rancho, or Superlift?

I'm leaning towards Rancho and possibly Skyjacker, just curious on peoples experience.

Re: Skyjacker vs. Rancho vs. Superlift Suspensions

Of your 3, I like the Skyjacker the best. I'm tempted by the 3" Class II front kit with the coils and control arms, and the 5" rear springs (to get rid of the factory 3" blocks[img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]), but they want a lot for them.[img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Two other good kits to look at are the 3" and the Dick Cepek 3" Series II available from California Supertrucks/ They are both spacer lifts, no new coils, but I'm really considering the BDS lift. It's a Michigan company so it has my sentiment right there, but also their warranty is unbeatable (click on the link and read it), and when I got a price on it, their 3" front kit with the longer control arms, link skid plates, and 5" rear shackle flip (again, to eliminate the factory blocks) was several hundred dollars cheaper than the Skyjacker Class II kit with 5" springs. Like a LOT cheaper, more than just the cost of the springs.

I'll probably end up going with the BDS kit.[img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
