4in or 6in lift?

I am looking to get a 4in or 6in lift for my truck but not sure what to get. I already have a leveling kit with 35x12.50 but Im not sure if 35's would look good with a 6in lift or I should go with a 4in to use my 35's. thoughts?

35s dont look bad with a 6 inch lift but 37s would look better. my avatar pic is a 4 innch lift with 35s. depends on what kind of budget your on. i would go with the 6 inch if i did it again

I would say go with a 6" lift. It seems that no matter what we do, we always want more.

Here's a pic of my truck with 325/60R20 (35") Terra Grapplers and a Fabtech 6" lift. Just be ready to upgrade your front suspension. My ball joints, tie rods, and drag link are shot after only 40k miles of being lifted (85k on the clock).

thanks guys. I think I'm going to go with the 6" and might get 37" tires once mine wear down. Anyone know anyone local (houston) that does suspension swaps?

If you intend to stick with 35's go with 4" for sure. If you plan on going up to 37's in the future I'd go ahead and go with 6".

Long-term though I think 35s are too small for 6".

Do you know how many inches you are from ground to center of front wheel well on your truck? We put a lift on my buddies truck with 35" tires and not sure if it is a 4" or 6". This is with stock F350 springs out back and a 5" block. Front measures 46" from ground to center of wheel well.
