I'm in the market for a 6" lift kit for my 08 4.7 tundra 4x4. My question is what lift kit seems to be the best, price, quality and installation?

Seems like most guys here are running pro comp, BDS, or Zone which is a BDS lift without the name or skid plate. Honestly they are all well made kits. Really comes down to your preference and what prices you can find. Bad Dad's link has a ton of good info for you as well. Good luck with the search and post pics when you get your setup done.

I vote Zone 5" also. Not so much because I have it but rather the opposite. I knew which lift I would be purchasing when I purchased this truck because of price, reviews and because it is an unbranded BDS lift. If I had it to do over I would buy the Zone lift again.

BDS warranty is b.s. so save your money and go with the Zone since basically the reason you're paying more for BDS is skid plate, shims and no questions asked warranty. Better yet I've heard Pro Comp has a better warranty.

No one can really give you any good advice until you decide what you want to do with your truck. If it will be a street queen or lightly used off road, that will lead you in one direction. If you want it to survive a beating off road that will be another direction. And if you want it to go fast and fly like superman and land with grace like a jungle puma... well that will take you into the "no more savings account" direction.

Let us know what you want to do with your truck, then we can try to help.

And yes I said jungle puma. I understand that pumas (mountain lions) aren't jungle cats but it sounded cool in my head.

I use my truck for everyday driving, no serious off roading and definitely no jumping puma action, the most off roading I would be doing is driving down a dirt or gravel road to find a good fishing spot. So yea i guess you can call is a street queen. I think I have narrowed it to two choices either the rough country 6" or zone 5"

If those are the two options you've narrowed it down to, pick the Zone 5". It's made by BDS, cheaper, upgradable to 7" for >$100, and your CVs wont beg for mercy like they may with the RC kit.

I think we need close up pics on each kit listing the hight so we can see how good the geometry is on them cv and ball joints ect so we can descide on what we can safely and reliably get out of each kit.I would like a 6 inch or 7 but I dont want the kit to be maxed out to get that 6 inch I want my cv angles strait at 6 inches.So I can gain a couple more inches with coil overs and uca.......Still waiting on this cst kit to come out to here some reveiwss.:lol5:
