Exclamation help with suspension lift?

as i posted earlier, i got the bed of my truck line-x'ed. great investment except for the fact that the lazy fuckers didnt take my bed bolts out and sprayed overtop of them. since the process of getting them out is to risky in the sense of damage to my bed, i have decided to go the route of a 3-4 inch suspension lift. i do know that they are a considerable amount more expensive, however i am left with no choice.

i was looking at the superlift suspension kit, and i know skyjacker makes one, but im not to sure which lift is better quality, or who else makes suspension lifts that will fit my truck.

if anyone can suggest to me a good quality suspension lift that will fit my 2010 4x4, it would be greatly appreciated.

Skyjacker is a good company. Rancho too.

My opinion is suspension lift is best for any truck. You won't have to worry about body lifts sliding around on you and crap. Blah..I hate body lifts.

Yeah the skyjackers are 97-below, superlift is your main option less you want to use the AAL from the other kits

I would use a razor and cut around the bolts through the line-x to get the bolts to come through. then go get stainless headed bolts to replace them with

ya its alright. if i do any kind of cutting on it i'll void the warranty. it doesnt matter though, i just have to wait till i have enough money for a suspension lift cause my new rims and tires wont fit unless i have a lift
