6in lift on an 04 6.0

Anybody here running a 4in lift on their 6.0? If so how do you like it and how did it mess with your MPG's. Ive also been told lifts are hard on auto trans not sure if its true or not.

Its not the size of the lift you have, its the size of the tires you run, that will mess with fuel mileage. The tranny's behind the 6.0 are really stout units, as long as they're properly maintained

*Full Bulletproof Diesel kit with remote oil cooler

New truck has a Cummins and a handshaker

Is it 2016 yet?

I have the 4in lift with 35s and my truck is stock except for an EGR delete and I can get anywhere from 13.5-15 in the city. I have gotten 17 on the highway before if I keep it under 70.
