lift for early 80\'s 2wd F150?

Not sure what year it is, but who makes a good lift for an early 80's 2wd F150?

Camburg's site only lists 87 to 96. I'm not really looking for a super travel Baja-spec kit anyways, this is Michigan after all.

I know Fabtech used to make a good kit for them, but has it gone down in quality like all the rest of their products as they've gotten commercialized?

Anybody know anything about the Rough Country kit?

There are simple drop-down bracket kits that you can get for around a couple hundred bucks. Check out pro-comp. 4wheelparts.com has info too.

Hmmmm.............looked at some of those kits. I don't need full Glamis dune jumping capabilities, but don't like the "1/2 done" approach some of the basic kits do. Lift you up but nothing to fix the steering geometry or actually increase travel.

Hmmmmm............wonder if Fabtech's lifts for these are still good? At least theirs has longer arms, steering stuff, drop brackets, coils, etc.

I was on their site, doesn't list anything for 2wd trucks later than 79. Have to email them and see what they say.
