Lift Kits from JBG

Hey guys, I am getting closer to ordering a 6" lift kit for my 88' F-150. I was looking at the super lift kits from Jeffs bronco graveyard and am going to go with the super ultra priemium with extended radius arms or the 5.5 super ultra priemium super flex. Does anybody have any experience with eiather? Is the super flex worth the extra couple hundred bucks? What is really the difference? Any advise would be great.

Depends on what you'll use the truck for. Do you really need all that flex? Most lifted trucks hardly ever see any real off-road action that would warrant the extra cost. I'd just go with the super-premium 6" with extended arms and new leafs. that's what I plan on doing in the zebra.

Still. The super flex is more geared towards rock climbing and such. Where high flexibility is a priority. Though a down I've seen to it is it isn't as stiff you you tend to "wobble" more then you normally would. Its kind of unnerving if you don't need it IMHO.

Thanks for the input. Are there any other brands of lift kits that you would recommend over the super lift?

The JBG is the best bang for buck kit. However if you plan to do serious offroading id check out BDS. They have a lifetime warranty. If it breaks they will replace it. They're a. It more expensive depending on options but I had their kit on a dodge and took that thing over jumps at crazy speeds and heights. Never once did anything bend or break. Some of the other companies kits look kinda brittle to me.
