Which 6\" Suspension lift is best?

I have a 2003 1/2 ton Chevy. I want to put a 6" lift on it with 35's. I've heard many different opinions on what lift is the best. What have you heard about RCD, Trail Master, Fab-Tec or Pro Comp? From what I have heard so far, Fab-Tec is one of the best, is this right?
Thanks!

Dont get a procrap. IM not sure if they make a Dick Cepek lift for that year, but if they do, thats what to get. Its a 6.5" kit.

I have a pro comp on my truck its alright but I don't think I would recomened it. The tuff country 6" looks like a good lift. I saw one on a 94 1/2 ton and with the lift on the cv's were pretty much level.

I've heard RCD first, then Fab-Tec from a reputable 4x4 shop.

I went with th Superlift 6" for my '03 Silverado. The install
went fine (I posted a writeup on it a couple months ago).

A few parts ended up needing modification. I took a good look
at lots of lifted trucks beore choosing. RCD looked good also
subframe looks well made on the RCD.

If I were you I would go the RCD. That is the best lift kit on the market right now. I talked to Central 4wd and they said not to go with the the Dick Crepk kit. They are not all that they are made up to be. Also dont go with the Fabtech. Go either the RCD or the Procomp. Just my imput

rancho is a fav. because it really is a 6" lift kit. The front diff is dropped 5.5" i believe allowing you to gain 6" of lift even though it says its a 4" kit.
