Question Best Suspension Lift???

I have a 2006 F250 Crew/Long 6.0L. Im looking to get a suspension lift and want to make sure I dont buy a cheap lift. Im not looking for anything radical. Most likely a 4" lift. Ideally I would still like to be able to fit into an automatic carwash as I am somewhat anal about keeping my truck clean. I do plan on replacing the factory wheels and tires after the lift. I have been looking at Skyjacker, ProComp, Rough Country and Zone.... What do you guys think?!

I think you're going to get a lot of valuable opinions in response to your question. I recently had a Carli 2.5pintop (4.5in) lift installed on my 2012. I was also considering the icon, but the fact that there was actually a rear spring option (i opted for the mini pack) rather than just a lift block is what made me decide on the Carli.

You'll probably get more responses if you post down in the suspension section.

The 4 brands that you posted are technically cheap lifts as opposed to nicer systems by Pure Performance, Carli, and Icon. I'm not sure what you budget is but you can get into a Pure 4" X-Factor with a set of Bistein 5100's or a Carli Starter Kit (comes with 5100's) for around $2k.
