Input on 05 6-8 inch lift

In a month I'm going to lift my truck up 6 inches or 8 butI really don't know which one route I should go.
If I go 6in. I'll put 35s and 8in. I'll be putting 37s
Wheels I like are the rockstar chrome

This is my first 6.0, i may pull 1 trailer a year, its daily diver and i deliver automotive parts biweekly.
I would really appreciate y'all input and opinions.

why not put 37's on a 6 inch? I have 35 on my 6 inch and I can easily get 37 in there

a 6 is easy to make an 8 later if you change your mind but not the other way around

i agree with zmann. i have a 6.5" lift on my 05 ext. cab with 20" rockstars on 35s and it looks stupid... i need to either get 37" tires which will probably make my truck hella slow, or drop 2"s off my lift. i may drop my lift down to 4.5"
