Help with buying lift

I have an 08 F250 crew cab, short bed FX4, I want to lift it, but dont have alot of money to buy the biggest and the baddest. I want a comfotrable on road ride, but offroad capability. Im looking to go about 6" with 35" tires, I like super lifts, and rize, but they tend to be expensive. Any suggestions would be much appriciated.

You would be better off deciding the highest lift and biggest tire you want to run and then shop for the lift that fits your needs and save up and then do it . If you settle for less height and tire size now and buy a cheap lift , then down the the road you`ll wish you bought a better lift and higher , so then you`ll spend even more $ in the long run. I had a 6.5" rubicon express lift first and 37" tires, after about 3 years, I decided I should have bought a bigger lift and a better one, so 2 yrs ago now I went to a 12.5" Icon lift . I spent $5600 for the first lift tires wheels install, and alot more the second time with the Icon12.5" dual front hoops and shocks, clocking the transfercase and extending the drive shafts, ouo traction bar /block system and tires and wheels and install, I spent around $9000 that time. Do it right the first time and save $$$$ .
