What lifts for a 95 F-150?

I am looking for a lift for my 95 F-150 4x4 Extended cab. I think I want to do 6" and a 3" body with 35" tires. What is a good name brand lift that does not need to be nickle and dimed to death?

why would you want to spend the extra money on the purchase and installation cost of a body lift when you can fit 35's with the suspension lift? there are sooo many manufacturers out there for that truck. i couldn't begin to tell you what's best.i'm sure you'll get some help on this one.

Because a 6" with a 3" body lift with a true 35" or 36" tire looks Badass and the tire isnt "so stuffed in" I had a buddy that did that lift on a old bronco with a set of TSL Super Swampers that truck worked well

Thats what I am talking about. The 35" don't look like right on a 6" without the body lift.looks like the truck was not lifted enough.

There is alot of kits there. Why do all the kits say this seperate and that seperate.....Like brake lines....you need them over a 2" lift so why are they not supplied?

1995 F-150 Extendedcab 4x4 5.8L E4OD.
6" lift on 35" tires

1988 Thunderbird Sport. 5.8L swap.

Because some times not everything is supplied in a "KIT" most likely to save you money in buying parts you don't want in case you choose to do something different that way you wont end up with parts you don't need or want
