if you cant decide between two lift sizes, always pick the larger of the two. Youll regret it later if you go smaller.

Very true. I wish now I had went with a 6in instead of 4, but I only wanted to pay for 35's at the time and now I want 37's but cant without other issues. So go atleast 6 in

When you first get into lifting trucks this is what everybody says "RAWR bigger is better" but i don't think thats always true. To much lift on to small of a tire looks stupid. I run a 37 on a 4" lift and LOVE how it looks, they came off a truck with 6" lift and it looked goofy so he upgraded to a 38.5.

I vote 4 + 37s

That is a hard choice between the two lift sizes and the tire sizes. One question I have is are you going to use your truck for work, towing and hauling and putting tools in the rear? If so, you are going to probably want the 4" lift and the 35's. If the truck is an expression of you then go with the 37's and the 6" lift
