rough country 4.5 lift

I have a 2006 f250 crew cab short bed I am looking at lifting. Just like a lot of people moneyis tight and don't see anything changing in the near future. I already have tires and wheels.35x13.50 atz's.I am looking at the rough country 4.5" kit and possibty upgrading the shocks. I don't have the money for the icon or the rcd kit. What does everyone think of this kit honestly.I don't off road much just a little beach riding-lifting for cosmetic purposes mostly. I figured there is no way I could clear with a leveling kit and I also know rough country makes a 3" kit but I don't know if that would be enough clearance. Wheels are 20x10. I had these wheels on my truck stock height. Eith a set of 305/55/20 terra grapplers and they only rubbed at full flex and lock. Thanks in advance for everyone help

I have a similar set up but Pro Comp. I think it rides a little stiff, but handles really good. My 35's rubbed on the fenderwell liner, but I was able to do minor cutting bending and pulled it back. I think you will like the kit just fine. The truck will still be easy to get in and out of as well as being able to put things in the bed. Do the 4.5" not a 3"
