Lift?

So I have owned lifted trucks before... this truck has a leveling kit and add-a-leafs in the rear with air bags and on board air and I want to run nothing smaller then a 35's and 99.999999% sure they will fit but I keep seeing photos of my truck with about 4'' of lift and its starting to grow on me althought I am a strong beleaver in the fact you dont lift trucks you lift toys(aka you dont really use it as a truck 24/7). I wouldnt lift it for a few months yet but what do you all think? also its a truck not a toy in my mind, and I use it as a truck so if you have a lifted truck and have problems towing or hooking up to a goose neck anything let me know please thanks

well from the pics it looks like a toy lol im jk. anyways i put a 4" lift on my truck strickly because i tow alot and honestly idk why i didnt do it sooner! rides better and smoother. only down side is the trailer has to be jacked up alittle higher so that the truck can get underneath it but other than that no problems!

our goosenecks sit slightly angled on my truck but nothing major. with the loads i pull the trailer ends up leveling out anyways and the truck hardly squats but the truck squatting is going to depend on how well your leafs are or if you get new ones then im sure it will be very nice!

Nice looking truck indeed! I think 4" lift is good and still tow.

I think it's a personal preference. If you like the lifted look, go for it. You shouldn't have any issues towing with it. And it probably will ride better. I'm running 315/70/17 with no lift and I love it, but I just don't want a lifted truck. I say go for it if you like lifts.
