I am finally ready for a lift...

I am ready to lift my truck. I have been making some decent money lately, and would like to by myself a lift

I have Toyo MT 35's on my truck right now, and they rub a tiny bit, but a lift would make them easily clear the wheel well liners. I was thinking of anywhere from a 4-6" kit. I have been told to stay away from Tuff Country. Please help me choose a brand, and height. I would still like to retain a decent ride quality, and definitely would prefer a high quality kit that won't start breaking on me down the road.

Any input, recommendations, etc... Would be greatly appreciated. I would rather spend a little more money for a better quality kit

4.5" sounds about perfect height to me, not to high, not to low Thanks

all you need is a leveling kit. i would do a icon 2.5" with a adj track bar. my 35" fit fine with a 2" bds leveling kit. a 4" on these trucks make 35" look a little small.

I am really liking the Icon kits, but they are pretty expensive! I just need to decide at this point whether to go with a 2.5" leveling kit, or 4.5" lift. I think the 4.5" kit would be the better choice for me, just in case I get 37's at some point.

I have never done a lift on these newer trucks with coil springs, just older rigs. I would like to just get the kit and do it myself. How hard is it doing the lifts on these newer rigs?

without changing the tires, does a lift affect fuel economy?

With the correct tools and some mechanical know how the lifts on these trucks are very easy to install. I would also recommend the Icon 4.5"
