You can get a 4.5" Rough Country lift with a dual steering stabilizer for around $1000.00. I have one on my truck and I love it.

For your 2004 you could go with a BDS 4" which is a very well built setup and comes with a lifetime, no fine print, warranty.

That picture of my truck I posted has a 4.5" lift with the stock 33" ish tires. I don't have any newer pics with the 35 x 13.5 Nitto Terra Grapplers on chrome diesel wheels. Your 4" lift will look a little lower with a little smaller tire. I think it would look fine.

33s will look a little small, but I don't think it will look dumb.

Best kit bar none is a Icon hanger kit, will ride better than any spring lift kit will. Little more money but ya get what you pay for.

caryt - I don't know, my Rough Country spring lift on my 06 rides 100% better than the stock setup did. The Icon looks well made but I question whether it is worth the extra coin. There are a ton of us that have the spring kit and are extremely satisfied and have some money left over for other upgrades
