Lift opinions needed

Ok well the time has come for me to lift the new rig and I'm having a hard time deciding wether to get a 4" or 6" lift. I don't tow much anymore but occasionally will tow a gooseneck trailer. I'm currently running stock 20s with nitto trail grapplers in 35in. Anybody got pics of some lifts with 35s to help me decide. Also what lifts would y'all recommend for a guy on a budget? I really want a Carli lift but that's out of the question right now. Thanks guys

My opinion is save up the money for the Carli! I want to lift mine to, but don't want to waste time and money, when I know I will replace it with Carli in the future. Just my $.02

Assuming that you are going to stick with 35's then I would suggest a 2.5 or 4.5" lift. 35's even start to look small at 4.5" of lift so 6" woudl really look goofy. 6" kits work nice with the pre-08 trucks because of the smaller wheel wells though.

JMHO, like Ram said, 6'' lift with 35s doesnt look rite to me, some people it does, but not me. Too much fender space.

Carli is just about the best 4.5 lift you can get. if money isnt tight, if you go 6'', go with Icon or Pure.

Re: Lift opinions needed

Here's mine with a 4.5 inch kit and 35s on 22s, sometimes I think they look a little small in pictures but in person they look perfect.

Re: Lift opinions needed

It rides awesome. Progressive coils bilstien 5160s and deaver mini spring pack. Its a true 4 link that drives straight with no wandering. Even with the 13" wide tires. Adjustable track bar puts axle in correct location. I run a nitto terra grappler. Its a metric size like 35.4 x 13 x 20

My truck was a 4x4 not fx4. It always wandered a little I thought. It rides and drives better now than it did before. Rides better than my 2011 fx4. Rides better than my 2011 4x4. Rides a lot better than my 2007 fx4 with a leveling kit.

Save your money and buy a good setup.

CaryT at ctperformanceinc put this kit together for me.
