new tires and lift

so its about time for new tires again and i told myself last time i got tires that the next set was going to be 35's. so now the question is weather i should do a 4in suspension lift or just a leveling kit. i cant decide. what do you guys think? i use the truck as a work/personal/hunting truck. any pics of a cc on 35's with 16in wheels would be great so i can kind of get some ideas. thanks in advance

also im almost on 33's right now. if you do the metric to standard converson its like 32.8 or 32.9 i think

My buddy has a 4 inch lift with 35's and the truck sits really nice and is still very functional. He tows a 20 foot enclosed trailer all over the country with it. The truck has almost 300,000 miles on it lol.

I have the 35 with a level kit. Rides ok. Rubs if I am turning and going over a bump. I am personally going to get a 4 inch kit in the future.

Here is my truck 2.5" leveling kit in the front and 3" block in the bed with 35's. I love the way it sits and it is still very functional and can still pull a gooseneck with out it being to high in the front.
