I agree with ya.

I am about to p/u a Rancho 4" lift only cause its a KILLER deal I found on craigslist so honestly I'm pumped for it. I was goin to drop the money for the UCA cognito kit and I am gettin this almost new kit for LESS than just the base kit. Kid I dont think knows what he has.

Anyway I agree I may want 6" but I rather it a littl elift and then fit the 35's. I am actually shooting for 34's or whatever it works out to be on my H2 wheels. Go for that truck look with nothing flashy wheel wise so the truck looks sicker and more truck/mean. Then a nice beefy tire. So if I need more room i'll brign the front up some. I plan on keepin it 4" so the cv's are relaxed and last!

Also cause i'll be plowing this winter and every winter with it haha

Yea that sucks.. Well even with all my garages the truck doesn't fit so its an outside dog. I accept that.

If you want to go fast and have better turning capability, go with a 4". 6" will not yeild much of a difference over the 4" and sometimes its a pain in the ass finding a good parking spot in the city. Mine barely fits at a parking garage. Keep in mind, 33" tires are cheaper than 35" tires. Sometimes I wish I had a 4" because most the the time 6" are pointless when there is more than enough clearance to go wheeling. I drive on the highway 90% of the time and a 4" will give slightly better fuel economy because it has less wind resistance.

Don't tell me you're going low as Brian is?! Few times I thought about lowering mine but I did went wheeling the other day to avoid a traffic blockade. Shortcut to home, my fiance was pissed cuz she had to take the long way home :rof

Yea I will probably stick to the 4". Its my DD nothing crazy. I rather it all be like stock and smooth just a little tuffer of a height. Where I am I don't worry about "parking garages" or any crap like that. I drive some highway so I wont do M/T's ever again thats for sure. Just some nice at's and thast cool. If I go offroad im not flyin. Just gettin to where I wanna go and not draggin on the ground. I don't care much to go fast, and don't plan on boost launches even if mine was lowered. Just want it to be a truck. I don't worry about parking spots either I dont like parking close. And still my last truck was a 6" lift f-250 so anything under that is way easier and turns way better haha.

I still want to try fitting 35's but.. a true O.D. of 34 or 34.5 will work. I have a sawz-all
