Can't decide which 4" lift I want

Hey guys, going to put a lift on my 6.0 and I am torn between the Tuff Country 4.5" (some places call it 5") and the Skyjacker 4" lift kit. I'd be buying each one without shocks and buying Bilstein 5100s.

Knowing Skyjacker is a huge and reputable company I lean their way but they stack the rear blocks...

I don't know much about Tuff Country but the extra .5" or 1" would be nice but they don't include a steering stabilizer like Skyjacker does...

After getting all the necessary extras there is about $120 dollar difference so price is negligible. What are your guys opinions??

If I had to do it again, I'd buy a 4" kit, trash the stuff for the rear and get a 6" or 7" block/traction bar set up from PMF or OUO. Sure it sounds spendy, but it will be the last time you mess with a lift.

After looking at every brand on the market I think I've decided that the Tuff Country 5" is too tall for 35s and I'd be happiest with the Skyjacker and Fox 2.0s. Seems like the best bang for the buck
