4" or 6" Lift?

I have a 2011 F250 Lariat FX4, and I can't decided between a 4" and 6" lift. Any thoughts/recommendations?!

carli retains factory tow ratings but wouldnt hurt to throw some airbags under there as well as long as u dont do onboard air just the kit without onboards are pretty cheap

If you're going to be pulling a gooseneck I would lean to the 4" lift. The 4 incher is a great balance...tough looks, but you still maintain practicality. I've had an 8" on 38s, a 6" on 35s, and my present 4" on 35s. Overall I prefer my 4" truck.

carli is probably out of the price range, any off brands that are similar?

i wouldnt put a crap brand on a 60k truck im not trying to be an *** but if u cant afford to add good stuff to such a pricey truck maybe u should leave it as is, but carli is the only complany i know that claims it will keep stock tow capacitys but u can throw airbags in with other kits as i said before but some cheaper companys are fabtech and icon

Icon is not cheap..
