Best 4" will be a hanger lift period, 6" same but add X codes front and Icon 5" rears.

I had a rough country 6 inch lift with rear springs. It was an ok ride but I think if I had it do over I would have forked out the extra money for a BDS lift. I had a problem with the rear springs becomming turned and not straight. While that doesnt hurt anything it annoyed me. I was so annoyed I took the lift off and went back to stock because of it.

For an 04 I would definitely go with Icon Vehicle Dynamics.

Best ride and very well built.
