to lift or not, again

Sorry guys, I know I'm beating the dead horse. I need some advise. I am planning to lift my truck. I am torn between a 4" with 35" tires or a 6" with 37". Can I go 37" and do some light towing, less than 5000lbs? Also, I am looking at dick cepek FC II. My neighbor has then and they seem to hold up well. Does anyone have input on the tires. My other choice in tires would have been BFG AT's. Also, I was looking at Skyjacker suspensions. I hear that they give a good but solid ride. I still want my truck to have some functionalism. Thanks for any help guys.

Tank, I love your truck, but I would wet my pants trying to cut my sheetmetal. Besides, I want to sit up with the big rigs. I may not have their engine,or jack brakes, but the height is something to strive for.

I have a 4" lift with 35s and I love it. Eventually I think I'll go with 37s since I have room with my bumper. 6" would be too high for me, I think it just loses too much functionality. Also, cutouts are good, but in my opinion not without at least 38" tires, anything else doesn't fill them out good enough.
