Rancho or Tough Country?

Okay I'm tossing a lift under my 1989 K1500, I'm wondering if I should use a Rancho, which is what has been reccommended to me or a Tough Country; which is what my bro-in-law uses and he knows quite a bit. It's going to most likely be an IFS lift now that i've run dollar and costs into it. IFS will be a lot cheaper. I'll just get a k5 or something to rock crawl with, semi axles haha. Anyways let me know what you guys all think. Thanks.

Either one is a good kit. They're pretty much the same design (if I remember correctly, its been a while since I've looked at them). I have the old design TC lift and I'm good with it.

We have had good look with the new subframe / spindle design from Tough Country on our Tahoe.

I am running the Tough Country 6" IFS lift. One piece subframe kit. I rate this kit a 10!! I haven't had any problems with it at all. The kit comes with VERY detailed instructions. Very easy install if you have any automotive know how. The truck actually rides better than stock. This kit will set your front track width 4" wider. Get a set of 2" spacers for the rear and BAM insant wide track.
