OBS 4" or 6" lift?

I want to lift my truck. I want to run 37's. Will a 4" do it? The truck will never be offroad.


Any one have a used kit for sale?

I would go with a 4 inch. Not sure if 37s will fit. I think 6 will be too much for your truck, but 4 would balance everythin out and make it look badazz, espicially if you can fit 37s.
