I am in same predicament, although Im down to either 6 or 8"..... 6" looks fine with 35"tires in my books, which is what I have but I think 8" would make tires look small.

So, basically you may as well put that couple hundred $$ for level kit towards a lift kit!

You skipped right over the 4" kits. With the right wheel choice they are perfect for 35's and 37's on the 08+ trucks:






Carli Suspension | Pure Performance Suspension | Bilstein Shocks | Fox Shocks
Dynatrac | Flo Pro Exhaust| aFe Power | S&B | BMF | Fuel | Air Dog | Amp Research
Trailready Wheels | Spicer | ARP | REV-X | RIGID Industries | KD Fabworks | Baja Designs

I got the perfect solution for you man. 7'' lift. Kinda an old pic but the best I have for representation of the height.

I'd agree with the above, a max of 6in looks good with 35's if you go higher then you will also want to go larger on the tires otherwise they will look to small. You can go larger on a 6in as others have done, but sometimes they just look to large if the lift isn't there. Again, this is just personal opinion, so take it for what it is.

And Shaun your truck looks awesome, love that colour!

I think a more aggressive tire would make it look even better, of course that is just my opinion.
