10" lift to big

Im Pretty new to the site I have a 2008 cc 4x4 sb I dont pull a Goose neck or fifth wheel with all that being said. I can get a deal on a fabtech 4 link 10" kit with the 4.0 coil overs and i would want to run a 38x15.50 or a 40x15.50 on a 20" wheel. Is this to damn big for a daily driver? I want to lift my truck but dont want to hate it because i went to big. Can i get some feed back from some of you guys that have done this.

I've never had one that big, but pahrump used to have his truck at 10" with 22's on 40s and it looked AWESOME! You should do 22's and 40s

I have been searching and reading on here and it seems like almost every one that has driven on the 4.0 fabtech coilovers are not pleased with the ride. would like some feedback on that because even getting a deal it is expensive.

Depends..for me and some of my customers that have gone tall then lowered..pain in the ..after awhile, gearing changes, fuel MPG's sink, handling degrades..if you like driving fast in the twisties, stopping distances vastly increase. Comfort isn't as good. Getting in and out esp as you get older sucks..

Thats a lot of money and time to see some legs. Be a lot cheaper to hang out at a strip club.
