here is a pic with my 3.5" fabtech hanger kit.... one thing i have learned after 3 diff lifts on my truck... if your thinking between 2 diff lift sizes always go with the larger one... you will be kicking yourself in the rear if you go with just the leveling kit after you do it

i was running 35's.... if you only want to go 4" run 35's if you go to 36's your speedo is gonna be off around 3-5mph which will also through off when your trans shifts in and out of gears and out of overdrive..... it will create more heat which in turn will wear out your trans faster

A custom tune should be able to move the shift points to the correct rpm...
