You can cruise with it. It is a lift kit that gives some added travel, some performance benefits. You can't go jump it or drive 100 mph like a trophy truck. You get the lift, stiffer springs, and shocks that perform better than stock. But to me, the ride is harsh and for the cost you don't get too much out of it.

So what do you really suggest I get, I mean I heard the springs soften over time of use as do all springs, but I'm not really looking to romp the shit out of my truck just looking for a kit or for options that I could do to make my truck perform better to little things I throw at it like run the washes in ocotillo or some stuff

Or hit up Brandon @ BTF-fab.com about his mid travel kit. You will want more than the 5.5 kit offers, trust me. I have had a 5.5 kit, and a btf mid travel kit. I liked the btf mid travel kit way more and cost was similar to the camburg 5.5 kit

Are you running a btf now? I like how the btf kit comes with boxed lowers unlike the 5.5.

I was, sold the truck in october. 1,000's of street miles, 100's of dirt miles with no problems. It was a great kit, especially for thr price. Can't say enough good things about it
