IMO the best 4" kit is the Rancho. 1 piece subframe, all brackets made from 1/4" steel, not 1/8, MUCH thicker than stock, good instruction manual(that I don't read anymore)

I agree on the Rancho. I just installed one on my friends '03 and was impressed with the quality, fit and easy instructions.

The Rancho kit pushes the front wheels out farther than the Tuff Country. I just installed a 4" TC on my dually and the front wheels only pushed out 1/2" on each side. I think the Rancho is 1" on each side. Research this good. I personally dont like the look of the tires extending past the fender lips. My TC lift went in smooth. I paid $1295 for the kit and $600 for install.

BTW .. Les Schwab wont install either of those lifts on a dually where I live. TC or Rancho (the last time I looked), dont show an application for a dually, only the SRW. It will still fit the '06 dually's. Tuff Country also has a 1 piece sub-frame.

I had a suspension shop in central Utah install mine, they sold me the kit for cost and I paid installation. The install time is about 8-10 hrs for a suspension shop, not sure about special tools.

I thought I read the Rancho lift requires no more than 4.5" backspacing; if so the stock wheels may be a problem. And the drop spindles on the Rancho kicks the front track out 1.5" on each side. I've sledpulled, dragraced, and just plain driven hard my truck with the Rancho 4" lift for 2+ years and have not had any problems.
