4in Lift?

hey guys, havent been around here in a while. But i got a question. Im thinking about doing a 4in lift. Im wondering how much, if any, will this take away from my milage, power, ride comfort? Ill probably keep the truck on 35s maybe go to a 36 but I dont think so. Let me know what you guys think.

4" Lift on 35's with 3.73 gears My truck got 12.5 mpg avg. Never much better or worse. Custom Tunes gave huge power increase, but little change to mileage.

I also believe that every 6.0 is unique when it comes to mileage.

4"

4" lift pro comp lift with MX6 shows and dual steering stabilizer with 325 50 R22 (35") Nitto Trail grapplers on 22s wheels. no difference in MPG. I had 325 55 R22 perelli scorpions on before. measured out to a 36. I like both.

If I was to do it all over again, I probably would have went with the 4.5 Icon lift. seems to be good reviews on that one. But the pro comp was super simple to install did it myself took a good day.

Alright so I guess the consensus is that a 4in kit wont really change too much. Good to hear. The reason im lifting it is because i need new shocks all around and my rear leafs arnt level. The truck kinda leans to one side.... So i figure since i want to replace anything why not make it higher?

Where are you out of? Would you be interested in selling the leveling kit you currently have when you get the 4"?
