Lift Shopping

I'm shopping around for a lift.

My driving habits will remain the same. Pavement, highways, and occasionally pulling the Jeep around on a trailer.

I do not need the biggest or baddest. If I want to flex and articulate, I will jump in the Jeep.

Currently I am thinking 4" may be plenty. I'm not going to try to fit huge tires, though I might *might* bump up a size or two at a later time, when I do not have so much highway time ahead of me as I do this year.

In the Jeep world, certain models take better to certain lift manufacturers. Rubicon Express makes a dandy coil and arm, but for leafs, you would be better off looking toward BDS. I Imagine that is probably the same in the Ford Truck world. Being new to the Ford Truck world, what is the 'tried and respected' choice for a lift for 'Betty'? (see sig)

Also, in the Jeep world, the higher you go, the more 'little things' you have to address. I would prefer to keep it simple, as this will simply be for a little more beef in the stance, and not a 'performance' driven upgrade. Replacing springs and shocks is a simple procedure. Upgrading to longer brake lines, relocating steering components, or making drive line modifications makes it more than I want to handle, for the outcome I want to get.

In other words, if my hopeful 4" involves 3 extra hours work compared to a 3" or 3.5" option, please mention it.

Thanks in advance.
