I would say at least a 10" system, but depends on your backspacing.

I think 6" is the least amount of lift that I have seen with 40's. I'll see if I can dig up a picture.

I would say 8" to be safe.

Depends on if you want to cut your fenders...surely Tank will chime in and talk about his 4" and 40s soon...but he had to cut the fenders..I seen the 6 and 40s...look a bit stuff to me.

8-10 and 10" being ideal IMO.

I have 10" and 38's

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.
