To lower or not?

So I have an early 99 with an 8in lift on it. I have had the idea of lowering it back down to a 4in lift on 35's of a leveling kits on 33's. What would y'alls opinion be? I am able to tow my gooseneck either way

Im considering doing the same thing also of putting a 4inch lift and 35's on. It is more practical than a big lift, but it depends completely on what the owner of the truck intends to do with it. Just like some people like to take 4x4 sd and lower it lol. Everyone has their own preference. Wow can't believe you are still able to pull a gooseneck with an 8inch lift! A 4inch lift with 35's would probably b a lot less wear and tear on the truck.

I love to look of a lifted Superduty. As for wear and tear I know it will help a lot. The gooseneck I have I had built with a taller neck on it so it works just fine. Still have the idea tossing around though. Its not practical anymore. I am 24 yrs old so I'm still in the cool phase if you know what I mean. But its getting old. I have had daily drivers with 16in lifts and slowly going down lol.
