Best 4.5"-6" lift

I am thinking about lifting my truck in the 4.5" to 6" range. I want to run a 37/13.50/20 Toyo MT on my truck with black BMF Novakane 8's. Anyone got any good information for me? I am 90% of the time on the asphalt, so I don't need anything that is amazing for off road, just something that will hold up and be smooth out on the farm occassionally. I was looking at the 4.5" Icon and the 6" Rize lift with the radius arm drop. What do you guys think?

Good choices so far, although I am tell myself if I change mine anymore I want to go with a 4link up front, but then again DCspecial was saying before that his ideal lift wasn't a 4 link kit so I don't know...

4 links are really expensive. I just want to get it up in the air and have a good ride. Im done with the performance aspect of my truck and want it to look good now.

I've had products from both of those companies, they are both overkill in the quality department. Icon is probably the best bang for your buck.

I'll make you a deal on some Novakanes.

coil spacer that goes on the bottom of the spring perch. Just enough not to really need to adjust the track bar more than a smidge to straighten everything out.

Def. do the ICON. Mines already lifted 6" with 37s and I'm removing the 6" for the 4.5" icon.
