    So they say once you pass 3 inch lift, alignment seems to go off easily. True or false? Also heard people with 7in with F150 w/o issues. Any advice?

    I have a Procomp stage 1, 6 inch lift. Steering wheel is perfectly straight. Doesn't pull to the left or right. And no uneven tire wear. Hope that helps.

    I believe anything 6" or higher, the rear crossmember gets cut, and once cut ther no turing back, I have an older model kit so technically I can take this kit off, I'd like to go 4-4.5" kit

    Anytime you dissemble the front end components such as an UCA, I would recommend an alignment.

    Why, What does rough country do differently that the other bracket lift companies? They actually offer the highest ground clearance of any 6" equivalent lift on the market.

    I have a 6" RC and have zero complaints rides good handles good. My tires wear even I like a lifted truck but not a serious off roader so works great for me. I am sure if you do all lot of off reading there are better options but I drive on the road most of the time and through a field to hunt do just depends on what you are doing with it I suppose.
