Default rough country lift

Does anyone have a rough country lift? i don't know much about them and from what I've googled a lot of people love em and a lot of people hate em.. so whats your take?

im thinking about getting the 3" but i dont know it it will be high enough for my liking.. so if anyone has a 3" lift can you post a Picture for me?

First, I love your signature line!

Second, what truck are you driving and what are you looking for out of your lift? Keep in mind that the Chevy 1500's sit lower than both Ford or Dodge. In my opinion a 3in lift will just give the truck the stance it should have had from the factory. So, if you park your truck witha 3in lift next to a stock Ford they will sit at about the same height.

If you just wantyour to look like a truck should look, a 3in should do it. If you want it to look like a big truck and be able to roll on a 35in tire then go with a 6in. Personally, I would go with a 6in.
