Lift question?

I am wanting to lift my truck and have a bds 6" 4 link kit in the garage but i am concerned about running 37's i drive quite a bit all on road so i don't want to kill my mileage or mess with the dependability. I was thinking of running
35's but i know they can look tiny in the wells should i do a smaller lift or will the 37's not be as much concern as i thought plus i don't want any issues with the po po about the truck being to tall. please give me some input. anyone running a bds 4 link wondering how they ride?

I am really leaning toward 35's the more and more i think about it so would like to go with a 4.5" kit so do i worry about the extra 1.5" i will have with the bds kit i already have will it look horrible with 35's? or definitly sell the 6" and go the 4.5"?

I may go that way down the road i seen some trucks here with a 6" and 35's that looked good then i seen some that don't. I know lift's are addicting always need more i have had a few trucks with 40's and 44's but never really put allot of miles on them if that was the case here i would go BIG! I guess the only good thing about the 6" there will be room for the 37's if i go that route i see most with the smaller lift's with 37's go bigger anyway's.
