6" or 7" with 37x13.5?

Trying to decide between a 6 or 7 inch lift for my 37x13.5 toyos. Im seeing that with 6 inch Ill have to do some minor trimming. Would this be the case with the 7 inch? Im driving an 02 F250. Any suggestions between Icon, Fabtech or some of the other well named? I drive some offroad but not enough to spend the money on a 5,000 lift. Mostly stayin on the street. Thanks in advance for any help!

Seems like a 6" on a leaf-spring front end truck is equivalent to a 7" on a coil front truck. They just seem to respond to lifts more accurately, IMHO.

If you are considering the Icon 6" all spring system note that the Icon 8" system is nearly the same price. You can get by with 6" but if you plan on taking it off-road more is better. I ran 4" springs and 4.5" hangers on my '03:
