Leveling Kit vs. 4-4.5" Suspension Lift? WHAT IS YOUR OPINION

I know that I have been asking a lot of questions about suspension kits but I just want to do it right the first time. I already have a 2.5" Ready Lift Leveling Kit on my truck now. I don't have the rear blocks installed. I am running 35x12.50 on stock 20's. Is it worth the trouble to upgrade to a 4.5" kit or am I waisting my time with trying to find a kit? Do they make a difference? Does one look better than the other? What is your opinion? I am interested to hear.

2006 Ford F250 SuperDuty King Ranch 6.0L, 2.5" ReadyLift Leveling Kit, 35x12.50R20 (stock King Ranch 20" wheels)...that's all for now, but not for long

If your tire is rubbing on the radius arm, more lift is not going to eliminate that problem. A wheel spacer or a set of wheels with a different offset will.

I also have a leveling kit with 35X12.5R20 with the stock 20 inch rims but i dont have any rubbing issues. Notstock is right about the rubbing issue though.
