Lift Or Level

I bought my 250 hell bent that I was gonna lift it at least 4 or 4.5 inches but seeing what some guys have accomplished with a leveling set up I am back to being undecided. I have been looking at every thread I could find on which way to go. I dont have the FX4 package, just the regular 4x4.

I would really appreciate anyone who could post pictures or comment on pro's and cons, brands and ideas if you could. Thanks

Maybe this will sway you. I've been down the same road. I first got a levelling kit and35's then when I went to pick it up. I could barely tell the difference from stock. I then went 3 months not liking it so I went to a 4" with 36x15.50x20's and it was perfect. Didn't have to "climb" into the truck. I get in and out of it hundreds of times a day and didn't want to climb, also I have a 40' 5th wheel and a gooseneck trailer and I didn't want to lift the trailers so it was perfect for me. The 36x15.50's are meaty so the truck looks mean. This truck isn't mine but has a 4" lift with 36x15.50 MTZ's on 20x12 rims. It's what I would consider the perfect look.

That really is a sharp truck. I've been leaning towards a 4 inch lift. Haven't been able to find as many pictures as I had hoped. And I cant decide to go with 35 or 37 inch tires. Or even 36 like the truck above.

I still think 36 is the sweet spot. They are actually 36.4" overall diameter and 15.3" sectional width. Almost a 37 but you get the added width ( around 1.5-1.75" depending on the tire chosen)
4" lift with 37x13.50 . Look to skinny IMO . Seen here(white truck)

And this guy says he has 35x13.50 toyos on 4"lift but I think it's just a levelling kit.

That is a super sweet truck. What kind of bumper is that? it looks similar to a Fusion bumper.

That looks awesome. That exactly the stance I'm looking for. You wouldnt have any head on pictures of it would you?

I know guys get sick of the lift and tire size threads. But there is always someone updating thier trucks who haven't shown them, and common I mean who doesnt like a chance to show off thier ride as much as possible.

That looks good. Which lift did you go with? I have been looking at the rough country and an icon.
