I was set on a leveling kit at first and changed my mind to just do a 4" suspension lift cause i know i would be happier. but now what company to go with is the question. i want a good system at a reasonable price what everyone is asking for haha. i was looking at rough country, rancho, febtech. but still undecided. i do a good amount of driving so i need this to be tough. should i add traction bars and a sterring stabalizer? what im looking for is suggestions for what to go with and add any extras to make it even better! thanks everyone i appreciate it

i have a 4" cognito and love it. ive had the lift 2yrs with no issues so far. im running 325/65-18 with 4.5 back spacing and my torsions cranked half way with 4" blocks in the rear. also using there hd tie rods which are twice the size of the stock ones due to me doing truck pulls a couple of times a year.

4" is pretty small, I'd go at least 6".

I went 6", and wish I went 8".

I did the same thing went with a 6 and wish I did and 8

for the money I think a 4 isn't wouth it
just get a aftermarket key and crack the t bar and a block
it'll be about the same height and save $1000 buck

I have a 5.5" block in the rear. It does not come included in the front box kit. It is extra. You aren't going to need but a 2" or 2.5" block for your truck if you go with the 4" cognito. That will give you the leveled look! Or it you want cali don't add blocks or if you want the rear a little higher you want 3.5 or 4" blocks.
