hello and this is my first time hear and responding but I have to put my two cents in as well...I agree with most of what people are giving you info on (other than the personal preferences). I actually do have a Rough Country lift (2.5" x-series) and found that set up was excellent...it rides like a Cadillac now compared to the stock suspension. Soaks up hills and wallows with ease and the stability was very impressive. One thing I will suggest with WHATEVER brand you go with is to get adjustable control arms. I may only have 2.5 inches of lift...but if I want to go bigger (and we always do once we get a lift...we want more) I can get new springs and shocks and not worry about new control arms. I can still adjust out another 4 inches. In most lifts you get what ever the lift says and your stuck their...until you buy new longer control arms,shocks,springs,etc ALL OVER AGAIN. also lifting with bigger tires puts a LOT of stress on the steering...go 1 ton immediately and never worry again.
