Should I lift It?

Okay guys...I am trying to decide if I should lift my truck or not. I am thinking of doing a 4" lift. What do you guys think? Should I do it or leave it alone? I came across the first 2011 dually I have seen yet that is lifted and it is bada$$! I just can't decide. It has 22's with MT's on it. I would be keeping my 22.5's more than likely because it would cost me an arm and a leg to switch. I'm open to all opinions and suggestions.

I agree, it looks sweet as is. If you absolutly need to do something, just do a leveling kit.

Unless you plan on seriously taking that new rig off-road, I'd leave it as is. If you really feel you need to be higher, Throw a leveling kit in the front, maybe a taller block in the rear and call it a day. That truck looks great as it is, in my opinion.

Do you guys think it would look good with the 22.5's?

Not at all, my '01 Ram was sky high. I was just sayin that with his tire and wheel combo I think it looks better as is or with just a leveling kit. Plus the higer you go the worse the fuel economy. If it were my truck i would go with a leveling kit.

I just took my steps off. It makes it look a little higher. I am in between the leveling kit and the 4.5" lift still. Sorry for the crappy pick. The sun is going down.
