Lift question

Again, newbie here, so take it easy on me.

I'm wondering what level lift (if any) would be appropriate for my truck and what would be considered the best maker to purchase from. Coming from the Jeep world, I like to have as much wiggle room as possible, but I have some special circumstance on my truck.

I am in the process of buying a 41' 5th wheel toyhauler that is soon to become my primary residence. While I won't be towing the 5th wheel that often (3-4 times a year), I want to make sure that what ever I get will still allow me tow without any issues. What would be the appropriate amount of lift for this situation.

Once I've determined the height, who would be a good maker to buy from? I've read alot about readylift, where as I was a Black Diamond guy when I drove Jeeps. Who has a good lift out there for Ford F250's 4wd?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Well the problem is going to be your 5th wheel, you can only go so high before you run into problems with it hitting your truck with turning and break over angles. I would say 4" would be the max I would go, with a 4" you can easily get away with 37's. But remember that is going to put you up higher too, so I guess the question becomes what size tire do you want on your rig...
